Raise your hand if you don't have the luxury of taking a week off and going to the beach because it's spring break! Okay, stay over there with your raised hand while all of us that are stuck in the SBC during spring break are busy being bitter. Maybe we are on the same boat and there isn't much money in the bank account, but here are some things we can do in Shreveport/Bossier City. Some things we can do with the whole family and other things we can do with our favorite co-workers. Most of these things we can actually afford all while supporting local and giving back to the community!

1. Take the kiddos out for a Family Fun Day. Gators and Friends, Chimp Haven, G-Rock Climbing, Shreveport Aquarium, there is so much to do, the question is which ones can you fit in, in just one day!

2. Hoppy Hour. Get happy and hoppy with your favorite drinking buddies and hit up all the breweries in the SBC! Great Raft Brewing, Flying Heart, Red River Brewing, the list goes on.

3. Get tipsy and Artsy. The best part about painting with a twist is it's a BYOB type of place. Artispy is also a really cool place to get boozy and take some art instruction from experts. You have the drinking part down, and if you don't have the artistic part down, the booze helps you forget you're far from an artist.

4. Escape with friends. If you have kids in the teen range or you just want to test your smarts with some friends check out an escape room! They sound kind of easy right? WRONG! You may come out feeling defeated and needing to up that I.Q. or you just may earn some bragging rights! Red Herring Escape Rooms, Escape Shreveport, we have some of the coolest escape rooms in the SBC
