I hope you don't disown me when you read this, but:  I am not originally from the Shreveport Bossier area.  My family and I moved here a little over 3 years ago from Texas, and we absolutely love it!  The crazy thing is, I grew up a little over an hour from here - but the differences between the Shreveport / Bossier City area are amazingly huge.  To be honest, I've made the trek to Ratchet City numerous times as a visitor from the great state/country of Texas.  Living here, however is a completely  different ballgame.

Before I start, just know - this is my list.  Maybe these things aren't surprising to you, but they sure did catch me off guard.  Remember, I was coming from Gladewater, Texas (a little town just outside of Longview, go Bears) - which is only about an hour and fifteen minutes away from Shreveport.  If you're not familiar with using time as a geographical mesurement, that's a little over 85 miles away.

If you have anything to add to the list, I'd be happy to amend it.  Just comment on the post or message us inside our all new, and absolutely free app.  If you don't have the app everyone is talking about, click the button below to download it right now!
