If you're a christian family guy who is a LSU / Saints fan who doesn't like the let's get hammered all the time atmosphere, then Shreveport is wonderful. There are lots of Cowboy fans here but I think the Saints fans outnumber them directly in the city.

Shreveport is very laid back. Hunting and going to church are very common past times here. However be aware that racism is HUGE here and if you're white, you'll get snarky looks from blacks and if you're black, you may overhear a very crude racist joke from a group of whites from time to time. Racism is very, very open here. Much more so than in New Orleans.

I would agree with the racism issue. It's pretty rampant here unfortunately. Personally Im a proponent for my hometown of Ruston. It's pretty laid back, very religious(Mostly Baptist/Methodist), and tons of stuff for kids/families.

North Louisiana is a wholesome area. I grew up in Shreveport. We dont have the drunken revelry like South La.
Most folks say somewhere around Alexandria we lose the Cajun accent..and it and life gets more yankee..

I have been called a North Louisiana Yankee...but the food is all good anywhere you dine in La. You will find Tobassco sauce on the table.

So, Yall Come Down Ya Hear..

They both (north and south Louisiana) have their positives and their negatives. Just flip a coin and call it in the air. Whatever it lands on is where you end up.
