What to Do When Staying in Shreveport Furnished Apartments
Shreveport Shopping Recommendations
If you like to shop till you drop, several places in Shreveport beacon you. Downtown Shreveport is a good start. Then you would do well to also pay a visit to the Shoppes at Bellemead. There you will find a wide array of modern stores such as Chico’s and Coldwater Creek. Finally, no Shreveport shopping foray would be complete without strolling along The Outlets at Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City directly across the river from Shreveport.
Live Music in the Shreveport Area
Some of the local favorites in Shreveport for live music are the Cantina Laredo, Riverside Warehouse, and Superior Grill. Riverside Warehouse is probably the best option, as it is a larger music-only venue, whereas, the other two are mainly dining venues. But any choice will provide you with a wonderful experience.
If you happen to be in Shreveport in May, you will probably want to step out of your furnished apartment and enjoy the local Mudbug Madness Festival. “Mudbug Madness Festival celebrates Louisiana music and crawfish,” says LouisianaTravel.com. “Bringing a bit of south Louisiana to the northwestern corner of the state, Shreveport's Mudbug Madness is one of Louisiana's most popular food-and-music events.”
Along the Red River are numerous, picturesque biking and jogging trails. Additionally, several city parks also furnish you with enjoyable outdoor experiences. Corporate apartment renters with children in tow will not want to miss a trip to East King Highway Park, called “The Duck Pond” by locals. Your child will be delighted to feed the hungry little “quackers,” as well as play on the wide variety of playground sets scattered throughout the park. Another child-friendly park enjoyed by local residents is the A. C. Steere Park with plenty of water fun in the sprayground, including unique playground modules that meet diverse needs of children. There are also tennis courts, a 3/8 mile trail, picnic area, and two lighted ball fields. If you still haven’t cooled off with enough water, pay a visit also to Splash Kingdom Water Park for more family fun.
If fishing, boating and camping are your choice of recreational activities, check out nearby Cypress Black Bayou, Caddo Lake, and Red River National Wildlife Refuge.
All in all, Shreveport beacons its residents with a panoply of fun activities. Check them out for yourself the next time you stay in Almost Home's Shreveport corporate housing.
