Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Shreveport, along the banks of the Red River in northeastern Louisiana.
The neon-lit Texas Street Bridge spans the Red River, which connects the twin cities of Shreveport and Bossier and serves as the region’s cultural lifeblood. Many of the city’s prime attractions lie along the river, conveniently located near our Shreveport hotels. At Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center, kids can don spacesuits and land a space shuttle on the moon or thrill to an IMAX movie. Directly across the river in Bossier the stylish and sprawling Louisiana Boardwalk is the place to go for outlet shopping and outdoor cafes or simply to stroll the pretty paved walkway. In springtime, some 15,000 azaleas bloom in the gardens of the R.W. Norton Art Gallery, south of downtown Shreveport. Inside is an outstanding collection of Frederic Remington’s iconic representations of the Old West; museum admission is always free.
Guests of our Shreveport hotels can take advantage of the city’s split culinary landscape. Local restaurants draw inspiration from the city’s proximity to eastern Texas and southern Louisiana. Satisfy your hankering for a taste of cowboy country with a juicy Texas-size steak. Or savor the flavors of the bayou with a bowl of seafood gumbo, a Cajun stew thick with shrimp, oysters and spicy sausage. Return to the riverfront around Texas and Commerce streets for rollicking nightlife close to our hotels in Shreveport, where clubs feature live zydeco music, karaoke and comedy acts. The festive atmosphere spills over to the banks of the Red River and five riverboat casinos moored nearby.
Book a stay at our Shreveport hotels in spring for live music and crawfish boils at the Mudbug Madness Festival. Visit in autumn for the Red River Revel, a showcase for regional art and music.
