Shreveport-Bossier COVID-19 update: Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has instituted a gradual reopening of many businesses with occupancy restrictions, enhanced sanitation, social distancing, personal protection equipment and other appropriate protection measures necessary to protect the health and safety of the people in Louisiana. Although many businesses have been approved for limited reopening, some nonessential businesses will remain closed to the public. Before you visit a business, please call to confirm that they are open, and to find out what restrictions are being enforced.
The many lakes, bayous, river and parks give visitors a chance to soak up the natural beauty of the area while providing plenty of things to do. Check out Caddo Lake, on the border of Louisiana and Texas, for a relaxing and picturesque view of bald cypress trees, aquatic plants and lush vegetation. Take to the water for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and more on the popular Red River and other bodies of water.
