Bossier City Things to Do
Probably one of the best things to do in Bossier City is to go down to the Louisiana Boardwalk. It is a shopping and entertainment district nestled along the banks of the Red River. There are very nice restaurants here along with unique shops (along with many mainstream ones), movie theaters, bars, and of course nice views of the river. There are...more
Bossier City is a decent sized city of about 65,000 (up 15% since 2000) located across the Red River from Shreveport at the intersection of Interstates 49 and 20 and US Highway 71, in Northwest Louisiana near the borders with Arkansas and Texas. You might expect Bossier City to be the parish seat since it is the largest town and shares the name of...more

Bossier City Restaurants
$20 as of April 2013. Joe's Crab Shacks serve very good seafood in a nice casual environment. I liked the outside on this one with the shark coming out of the front and the view of the Red River was great. As usual, the food was quite good, the service friendly, and the atmosphere comfortable. Hours are 11 AM to Midnight daily (subject to the...more
Okay, you don't usually go to Hooters for the food you go for the sports on TV and to see the waitresses in the "Hooters" T-shirts and bright orange shorts. I hit the Hooters in Bossier City just when they were opening so there were very few waitresses available and mine was having a bad day (she was cute though). Houirs are 11 AM to 12 AM Monday...more
$9 as of April 2013. I liked this Chinese buffet a bit more than average because they had more seafood dishes. They have the usual buffet items along with some sushi (for those into that) carb legs and more. Slightly better selection of deserts too. Service, décor, etc was about what you expect if you have been to these buffets before. Hours are 11...more

Bob didn't want to eat Mexican two days in a row, so we drove out in the dark, and we couldn't find much. Eventually we stopped at this place, which was all done up in red, white and blue. They do breakfast too. I had a rib eye and mashed potatoes and a salad, and Bob had a chopped steak with brown gravy.more
Bossier City Nightlife
There are 5 casinos in Bossier City. I admit I am not big on going to casinos so I am not an expert. (I did have to play at the casino in Monte Carlo though). I opted for Margaritaville, not because I know much about casinos, nor because there was something better about it than the others; but because it was closest to the Louisiana Boardwalk and that was where my car was parked. If you like casinos this seemed like a fine choice. Like most casinos, you can also get a room, eat, drink and see shows.
Dress Code: Casual for most everything; but dress up a bit for the showsRelated to:
- Casino and Gambling
Bossier City Transportation
There are privatley owned shuttle buses that run to all 4 casinos. I DON'T recommed buying a pass, that is for one shuttle bus. it can take up to one hour before the same bus shows up. There are at least 3 shuttle buses that run to the casinos.
