This is nice little park about ten minutes up the road in Blanchard, Louisiana with miles of forested hiking trails and a visitor center with exhibits and live animals. The park hasn’t been kept up to its fullest potential in the most recent years, but if you want to get out of the house for an afternoon it’s worth the trip. Located at 8012 Blanchard Furrh Road.

- Great Louisiana seafood, great environment, and you must try the Shrimp Buster. The drive to the restaurant goes through an older, run-down, part of downtown so it might seem as if you’re lost at some point, but stay on course. The food and atmosphere is well worth it. Located at 1833 Pierre Ave.

Owner, Harvey Clay, has been cooking barbeque since 1968. He has crafted what Shreveport - Bossier Convention Bureau calls "some of the best brisket in Northern Louisiana" and we agree! This cozy restaurant has a casual, down-home atmosphere.

If you are looking for something off of Diners, Driveins, & Dives check out Strawn’s for breakfast or lunch. The ice-box pies have been featured in Southern Living multiple times. They have multiple locations but we recommend the original location at 125 Kings Highway in Shreveport.

Транспорт
Take Route Along I-220
When traveling out and about we recommend using the routes that take you along Interstate I-220. When searching for places, this might seem like the longer route. Please keep in mind, it is a much safer drive especially during the evening hours.
