My husband and I have been here for 10 years. I was in the Air Force from 99-06, he is still currently in. As far as the local area, it's improved since we first arrived here, if you like fishhing and hunting you will have a lot to do, this is suppose to be an outdoorsmen paradise(not my thing).
You will be pretty close to home so that's great. The club scene here is well IMO...whack. It will not compare to Dallas. I don't think any of the clubs I went to when I first got here are still around. The have a few clubs but there's an incident on the news and then they end up on the black list(off limits) for awhile. There's the boardwalk I guess Shreveport-Bossier answer to San Antonio's riverwalk(doesn't even compare). The advice I would give you is give this place a chance, then try to get orders!!!!!!

A few other things casinos(when you turn 21), there's a local hockey team(mudbugs),the new centurytel(they have good concerts every now and then), new orleans isn't far, great movie theatre are Tinseltown(Shreveport)and the Regal Stadium 14(on Boardwalk). Like I said there is shopping on the Boardwalk, Mall St.Vincent(Shreveport) and the mall in Bossier(a joke). Hope this helps you. I remember coming here right out of techschool at 19 years old. I will say the area has grown but still not for me. I don't want my kids to grow up here. When you finally have a family (if you are still in the military) try not to be here. The Air Force has more to offer than Barksdale.
