    Pilots and others interested in airplanes or WWII would like this museum

    Inside the museum are displays on "The Home Front", and "The History of Aerial Bombardment" including photos and displays on other Army Air Corps and Air Force planes. That's what I found most interesting. Outside in the Airpark are 28 planes and related items on static display. That's what Bob liked. Some more of his pictures are in the Shreveport travelogue The museum is open from 9:30am to 4:00pm, everyday except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.

    A Government issued ID, (Drivers License, Passport etc.) is required to gain entry at the museum entrance.
    All vehicles are subject to search.
    No backpacks, briefcases or large bags will be allowed in any buildings.

NOTE...CALL AHEAD SEATING!!! this is not a reservation.it merely seats you ahead of walk-ins but it cuts youre wait time way back!!call early around 1:00p.m. ph-318-742-2400

    Favorite Dish: the outback special..best value.choose from 9 or 12oz. steak, you get soup or salad,choice of potato and of course theyre "to die for" complimentary bread. we always purchase a seafood add-on for about $5 more. choose shrimp or lobster tail. they both arrive laid on this toast that is really yummy.total=@15.00 -$20.00

    great family restaurant. its also great for adults only but i do suggest sitting near the bar for that "no kids" feel.its located on the boardwalk so we like to have a drink or two,go see a movie or browse for a while so we dont have to drive right after having a drink.most expensive appetizer-$10.00/a sampler w/chicken,crab dip& chips,boiled shrimp,potato skins.most expensive plate-crab daddy feast $25.99 all crab,corn-on cob &potatos.(this satisfies my"can eat 10 lb. of crab husband)kids meals @$5.00. they dont do reservations or call ahead seating but you can wait at the bar or check out the view of the river.

    Favorite Dish: seafood platter. all fried. shrimp ,fish ,clam strips,calamari ,hush puppies &fries@$14.00

    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.

    Favorite Dish: I had a rib eye and mashed potatoes and a salad, and Bob had a chopped steak with brown gravy.

    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.

    What to buy: Items that are available via the internet are:

    4] T-Shirts
    5] Posters

    Cascio's Market Bistro

    Great food, outstanding service, friendly environment. Reasonably priced. Their Italian dishes and steaks are by far some of the best in the area. You have to try their jalapeno cheddar bread, it's delicious. I would recommend this Bistro to anyone that is looking for good food at a reasonable price. www.cascioitalian.com
