Bossier City Things to Do

  • See the River Godess

    There is a nice sculpture, done by local artist Kirby Atan, called the River Goddess located on the Louisiana Boardwalk. I liked this statue; but could not find the model's phone number. Oh well, too young for me anyway.

  • Louisiana Boardwalk

    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...

  • Bossier City

    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...

Bossier City Restaurants

  • Great Seafood

    $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...

  • Mediocre Food; Good Waitresses

    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...

  • Decent Chinese Buffet

    $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...

  • Down Home Cooking

    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.

    Margaritaville Casino: Want to Gamble?

    by Basaic Written Apr 22, 2014

    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 shows

    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.

    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.
