I love Shreveport LA. I can't do nothing but love Shreveport this is where I'm from. My family is here! Shreveport Is A Melting Pot Of Southern Culture. Even big foot hangs out in Shreveport.lol. You can do just about anything you wanna do in Shreveport ,its so much to do here.

The “Once In A Millennium Moon Mega Mural” is the pride and joy of Shreveport highlighting the city’s triumphs, tragedies, and timeless treasures. It’s also one of the country’s biggest public arts murals, covering 25,000 square feet. It’s a must-see in Shreveport and once you move here you’ll be quick to brag about it.
Review Shreveport
Shreveport is a sleepy city, which despite it's size doesn't have a lot of the typical busy city life style. The schools in this area tend to do well, and the living is generally easy.

That being said, it does have a few issues. Lack of traffic enforcement means that you'll regularly see people driving 10+ miles over the speed limit, running red lights and stop signs, and in general driving dangerously. There's a big wreck here on almost a daily basis.

The night life isn't much either. There are few clubs and plenty of bars, but the city itself shuts down around 9 pm. If you aren't into social drinking, you'll be seeing that the night time offerings are severely lacking.

That being said, it is a nice city. There's not a lot to note about it, but if you're into a more relaxed atmosphere, then this is the right place for you. Just be careful when you drive!
I was born and raised in Shreveport, La. There's nothing like good Southern living and hospitality. I have earned a degree in Radiology and am now working in my field! I also have dreams of becoming my own boss so Esthetics is my next goal to accomplish. Some individuals speak negatively towards Shreveport; which I can agree on a lot of points, but it's all about what you make of it! I am now seeking help to pay for this certification.
