Shreveport is the commercial and cultural center of the Ark-La-Tex, the area where Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas meet. Many people in the community refer to the two cities of Shreveport and Bossier City as "Shreveport-Bossier".
A unique combination of two great American heritages set Shreveport-Bossier apart. It's a little Texas, a little Cajun. You'll find the combination reflected in mouth-watering dining, where flavorful Texas steak may be combined with spicy crawfish. Or you might find it in music, with nightclubs and concerts for jazz, country, bluegrass, folk, zydeco, and everything in between. There's no place like it in America, a world of color and sound, taste and entertainment, elegant Southern charm and a relaxed attitude that suggest you kick off your boots and stay a while.
