We are considering locating to Northern Louisiana, possibly the Shreeveport/Greenwood area. Can anyone tell me which areas are safe and have good schools? Also, a friend of mine mentioned Vivian (Shades of the Devine Sisters, etc.). Does anyone have any familiarity with this area? Any and all information would be helpful. Thank you so much!
Ruthy

Vivian is a very dirty, rough town. It has a major drug-related crime problem for a town with only a couple thousand people. Your best bets would be any of the following: a nicer area of Shreveport, Bossier City, Greenwood, Stonewall, Benton, or Haughton if you want a decent area.

Thank you so much for your information. It is really difficult when you are flying blind, so to speak. I would prefer to get in a smaller area, that is nice and safe, but with ready access to a large metropolitan area with all its amenities. I am not familiar with the Shreveport area, except when I have driven through it on one of our many cross-country sojourns. Do you have any information on Elm Grove? I look at real estate listings in the Shreveport/Bossier area, and some of the properties look very nice, but again, it is difficult to know what the area is really like. Again, you input is very much appreciated.
Sincerely,
Ruthy

If you are looking to live in a quiet small town, this is not it. I agree with the other poster, that for such a small population of people here it has quite a high rate of drugs, noise(loud cars riding up and down the streets with the bass full blast vibrating peoples homes), and not much for work opportunities.
However, to be fair to a lot of great people in this town it is a few that ruin it for everyone else. There are a lot of kind, helpful, friendly, hardworking people in this town. But for some reason the few are allowed to get away with much that ruins the town. Take care of the few and more would come to this town.

Did you not see the dates? Did you dig this up just to say how bad Shreveport is? Not the place for trolling. Go somewhere else.
