With a population close to 200,000 people Shreveport has some of the finest food, art, history and the most amazing people you will find in a big small town.
The term “Elvis has left the building” started in Shreveport. At the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium on December 15, 1956 to be exact. Elvis happened to be playing in our big small town and promoter Horace Logan had to quiet the audience so the other performers could play next.
Shreveport is definitely a mix of old and new. History and future, which can be experienced driving through the neighborhoods.
Rolling hills with gorgeous historical homes dripping with architectural detail. Adorable, quaint shotgun houses with years of stories. Established subdivisions lined with azalea bushes and crepe myrtle trees which put on a beautiful display of color at certain times of the year and new homes are being built throughout this diverse city.
Shreveport has gorgeous lakes, bayous, ponds and the ol’ Red River which connects to Bossier City.
Besides that little fun Elvis fact, Shreveport loves to eat and socialize. The most delicious food can be found throughout the city. Some making Better Homes and Gardens issues as well as appearing on The Food Network.
The Saint Vincent Mall, privately owned boutiques and fun markets are everywhere to indulge your every retail wish.
Shreveport families are doing a lot of remodeling, rehabbing, adding square footage, setting their flags and calling it home.
