Moving to Shreveport, LA
Knowing what to expect when you move is vital to making sure your move is stress free. Part of the way you should prepare for a move, especially if you’re moving out of state, is by doing the necessary research on the place you’ll be living. If you’re moving to or from Louisiana, then you should get to know a little bit about the state you’ll be living in. Louisiana is a unique state with very different cultures and ways of life among its different metro areas. So if you’re moving to Shreveport, you should get to know a bit about the city first.
If you’re moving to Shreveport, LA, and you’re a nature lover then you’re in for a treat. The southern part of the state is known for swamps and vast wetlands but Shreveport is also home to beautiful natural environments and plenty of parks for recreational activities. A few of the attractions for nature lovers around Shreveport are:
- Chimp Haven, chimpanzee sanctuary in Keithville, LA (Shreveport suburb)
- Clyde Fant Park, along the Red River
- Ford Park on Cross Lake
- Gators and Friends, alligator and exotic animal park in Greenwood, LA
- The Gardens of the American Rose Center
- Splash Kingdom Water Park
- Red River National Wildlife Refuge
- Riverwalk Park
- Spirit of the Red River, river cruise boat
- Yogie and Friends Exotic Cat Sanctuary, Frierson, LA (Shreveport suburb)
If exotic animals and long walks in the park aren’t your thing, there’s still plenty to do and see in Shreveport. The Barksdale Air Force Base Air Show is held annually for those who enjoy watching the amazing aerial feats those pilots are capable of. Another annual tradition that sports fans moving to Shreveport will love is the NCAA’s Independence Bowl. This college bowl game is a beloved tradition for a football-loving state and is held in December of each year as the local area’s unique way of starting to ring in the new year.
Like anywhere else in the great state of Louisiana, Mardi Gras is another tradition that the people of Shreveport regularly take part in. Just like in New Orleans, there are several Mardi Gras parades and parties in the springtime that people from all over the country come to see and take part in.
