Visit the Louisiana State Fairgrounds — just two miles from our Shreveport hotel — for the annual State Fair, which features a variety of exhibits, livestock events, contests, entertainment and a carnival with rides. If you are a sports fan, visit Independence Stadium, home of the Independence Bowl. If you are feeling lucky, roll the dice over at Sam’s Town, where you can experience the thrill of traditional casino games like craps and black jack, or try your hand at the slot machines. The casino also features live musical entertainment, so be sure to catch a show. Take a stroll down Louisiana Boardwalk along the Red River, and tour the Entertainment District and Promenade as you make your way around to the local shops.
