I had a really lovely visit to Shreveport for a conference. I knew it would be fun because of my road trip / roommate partner, and interesting because of the conference presentations, but I wasn't sure if Shreveport would be the most exciting road trip destination. I am happy to report that I would totally go back to Shreveport in a minute, and not just because I won $50 on the penny slots.
Three highlights of the trip for me were the boring sounding Louisiana State Exhibit Museum (with beeswax dioramas!!), the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium (which is apparently haunted), and the Noble Savage Tavern (the only bar I've been to that has a daily wild game special, delicious pizza, cheap beer, and a great atmosphere).
Want to meet up in Shreveport sometime? I'm feeling lucky...
