Shreveport is the third largest city in Louisiana and located along the West bank of the Red River, in the Northwestern tip of the state. It was originally founded in 1836 and named Henry Miller Shreve. Today it serves as the educational, commercial, and cultural center of the Ark-La-Tex region, which is where Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana meet. In fact, in 2015, it was named as the top place to start a business in Fortune magazine.
Besides the clear business success that surrounds Shreveport, it is also known for the arts, with countless performing arts centers, museums, and theaters, an incredible Mardi Gras celebration that dates back to the mid 19th century, and various casinos. Shreveport hosts a variety of riverboat casinos and, if you want to sample the thrills that gambling provides, check out these hotels nearby or with a casino, to get a taste.
