What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Shreveport

Small town feel with friendly neighbors. Plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. And quick to get anywhere you want to be.

Since I am totally blind, my neighborhood is perfect for me because I can easily walk from my home to my local Brookeshire's, Red River bank, or rhino coffee. Neighbors can also meet for a meal and a drink at Daq's Wings and Grill, or simply gather for fun conversations on their porches.

Close to alot of things like my doctors stores mall an alot of eating places we have chilling apple bee

We walk and play there is a huge park nearby, very close to the school my daughter attends. Have crossing gards

I like that the residents in my neighborhood keep their properties up. I also appreciate that my neighbors are fairly quiet and respectful of others.

Good neighbors, great place to raise a family. Close by the shoping centers and centrally located in town

All About

Living in Shreveport, LA

Getting to Know Shreveport, LA

Unlike its popular cousin, New Orleans, Shreveport takes its cue solely from Southern culture. Not only that, but its position within Louisiana means it's heavily influenced by its neighbors -- Texas and Arkansas. Sitting on the shores of the Red River, you'll find friendly people, excellent food and lush green spaces throughout the city. There's also plenty to see and do, most notably, the riverboat casinos (if you're old enough.) So, grab a po-boy or sit down to a crawfish boil and settle into Shreveport.

The Best Neighborhoods in Shreveport

Natural southern beauty meets a bustling riverfront throughout the neighborhoods in Shreveport. Here you can pick between a more bustling community or those with a laid-back vibe to get the perfect environment to call home. No matter where you live, you'll find delicious BBQ and plenty of places to shop.

  • Highland Historic District: Home to the city's famous Mardi Gras parade, the Highland Historic District features some great architecture. You'll find homes built as early as 1875. As a community, this neighborhood considers itself progressive and eclectic, with plenty of cultural diversity and activity fit for any age.
  • Downtown Riverfront: Scenic and full of activities, the Downtown area of Shreveport sits right on the Red River. Here's where you'll find the famous Eldorado Resort Casino. There's also plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment at the Louisiana Boardwalk, right across the river in Bossier City.
  • Highland-Stoner Hill: Just south of downtown, Highland-Stoner Hill is close to everything. A picturesque neighborhood, the pace here is similar to that of a small town. Its popularity stems from the area's mix of tranquility and entertainment, with plenty to discover when you call this spot home.
  • Shreve City: Giving a nod to Captain Shreve, Shreveport's namesake, Shreve City is a community of smaller neighborhoods contained around a central shopping center. Still centrally-located it's another neighborhood that provides easy access to everything the city has to offer.
  • Sunset Arcre-Garden Valley-Morningside: A relaxed, suburban community, also not far from downtown, Sunset Arcre-Garden Valley-Morningside provides easy access to all three major interstates in the area, as well as the Shreveport Regional Airport, making it great for commuters who travel outside the city. A complete package, you'll find plenty of casual eateries and a perfect park for picnics.
  • Cedar Grove-Lynbrook: Savor the seafood and the BBQ in this suburban neighborhood. Cedar Grove-Lynbrook has that charm many Shreveport residents are looking for. A little bit further out from the city center, Shreveport's highway system makes it easy to get from here to the airport as well as around the city.
  • Broadmoor: Shreveport's largest neighborhood by square footage, Broadmoor is home to some of the best dining and shopping in the city. Dotted with several green spaces, you can enjoy magnolias, pines, oaks, crepe myrtles and more as you explore.
  • Ellerbe Woods: With a deep sense of community, Ellerbe Woods offers residents a social neighborhood full of families, friends and pets. This popular area has a laid-back vibe with most of the activity located on Ellerbe Road, the main thoroughfare. This is a great neighborhood for people who want a secluded feel out in nature.
  • Queensborough: An affordable neighborhood, southwest of downtown, Queensborough is the place to be for sports fans. It's here you'll find Independence Stadium and Hirsch Memorial Coliseum. There's also plenty of other amenities to keep those less enthusiastic about sports busy.
  • Hyde Park-Brookwood-Southern Hills: One of the more southern neighborhoods in Shreveport, Hyde Park-Brookwood-Southern Hills offers a tranquil community with plenty of greenery. This laid-back area is pure suburban living with clusters of shops and restaurants as well as easy access to the rest of the city.

Fun Things to Do in Shreveport

From history to culture to some great parties, Shreveport makes it easy to find something to do any day of the week.

  • Inspect a turn-of-the-century pumping station at the Water Works Museum in Shreveport. At over 100 years old, this is the last-known steam-powered municipal water treatment plant in the country.
  • Take the whole family to the Sci-Port Discovery Center to get hands-on with math, science and technology. Make sure to catch an IMAX movie while you're there.
  • Explore paintings, sculptures and even some rare books while you're at the R.W. Norton Art Gallery.
  • Get a healthy dose of beautiful and fragrant roses at the American Rose Center Gardens. Here, you can see over 20,000 rose bushes and 100 different varieties across more than 100 acres.
  • For a lively dose of fun, make a plan to go to the Red River Entertainment District downtown. You'll have plenty of restaurants, bars and pop into while you enjoy views of the Red River.
  • Take some time to get up close to marine life at the Shreveport Aquarium. You'll see over 3,000 creatures, including turtles, eels, sharks and seahorses. Hands-on experiences let you pet a jellyfish or feed a stingray.
  • With over five miles of hiking trails and a visitor center that features live animal exhibits and an aviary, a trip to Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park can turn into an all-day event.
  • If you need somewhere to let the kids run off steam, send them running to the playground at East Kings Highway Park. Known as The Duck Pond to locals, when the playing is done, grab some bread crumbs and feed the ducks.

Getaways from Shreveport

You might have trouble deciding where to go for a quick getaway from Shreveport. Its proximity to so much leaves you with plenty of options.

You're also close by to relaxing spots like Broken Bow in Oklahoma and Hot Springs in Arkansas. If you want an urban getaway, Dallas is under three hours away.
