Living in Shreveport

Tradition and hospitality go hand in hand in Shreveport, the fourth largest city in the state of Louisiana. What was once a city alive in the wake of the booming oil industry of yesteryear, it is now a place where casinos and hotels have become one of the city's leading sources of revenue, as well as employment for many residents. Shreveport is the center of the Ark-La-Tex, the converging point where Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas all meet.
