From riverboat cruises, golf courses, casinos, shopping, and dining in abundance, Shreveport offers a bounty of things to do, see and experience. Listed below is a mere sampling of the amusement, entertainment, education and enlightenment you can experience in our charming Port City, and most within an easy drive of our hotel in Shreveport, LA.
This one-of-a-kind venue is not a museum, nor an art gallery; rather, it is a highly interactive destination that allows one and all to connect to the arts in imaginative, enriching and inspiring ways that include concerts, visual arts, poetry readings, dancing, theatre and more.
Caressed by the fragrant scent of a perennial favorite and one of the most beautiful flowers on the planet - the sweet rose - the 118 acres that is home to the American Rose Society is also home to 65 individual rose gardens, 20,000 rosebushes, and a myriad of sculptures, fountains and walking trails. Rose-lover or not, the Gardens of the American Rose Center are a wondrous escape from a hectic day.
From lush gardens bursting with over 15,000 varieties of flora - including a renowned collection of colorful and ambrosial azaleas - to an impressive European and American art collection dating back four centuries, hundreds of sculptures, dozens of annual exhibits and events, and so much more, the R.W. Norton Art Gallery is undeniably and irrefutably a must-see site while in Shreveport.
