Bossier City Reviews

I love Bossier City! I moved here back in August of 2012. The people here are so nice and have a sense of being free. There are many things to do and so many places to go. We have art museums, monthly art walks, Mardi Gras parades, and plenty of events to keep your heart content. I love walking down the Louisiana Boardwalk at night and seeing the bridges over the Red River lit up in different colors. It gives me chill bumps every time. It proves that we are the Land of the Free and we can be anywhere and anything we want to be.
This is the BEST place to live and raise a family! Bossier has some of the best schools and the local people here are AMAZING! We are a city built around Barksdale Air Force Base and there are many amenities this area has to offer. We have a local hockey team, The Shreveport-Mudbugs. We have tons of great places to eat and shop. Bossier City really is the best!
During my short time here I have been all over the town of Bossier City. As a home health nurse I see many of the neighborhoods and meet many of the people. For the public education, I can not give an opinion on due to my child is not yet of school age. I am how ever in the community taking care of family members. I have seen such love for family here. It warms my heart to see people trying so hard to give the best care possible for their loved ones with what little they have. Most of the buildings and housing are not in the best of shape. As for the night life, it is sad. Not everyone wants to go gamble their hard earned money away.
