Summertime is road trip time—and road trips mean treating yourself to the local flavors and specialties you just can’t get at home. That’s why you’ll want to hit the road for Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. You’ll have no trouble finding what to do in Shreveport when you arrive—the place is famous for its endless outdoor activities and fun riverfront casinos. But let’s be honest: The best part of any road trip is the dining! Fortunately, Shreveport-Bossier has an eclectic dining scene you’ll love exploring. Here are just four stops you’re going to want to make:
What to Do in Shreveport in Two Days
Orlandeaux’s Café: Located on scenic Cross Lake, Orlandeaux’s does seafood right. Don’t miss their Shreveport-style shrimp—large shrimp stuffed with fiery Creole dressing, deep fried and served with a spicy tartar sauce.
Frozen Pirogue: You’ve had oysters before, but not like these. Their oysters 318 are shucked and then chargrilled with Great Raft Brewing’s 318 Golden Ale and parmesan cheese for a one-of-a-kind treat.
Abby Singer’s Bistro: Everything on the menu here is great. But don’t miss the marinated crab claws, which are bathed in a signature herb-spice marinade and served cold on a colorful bed of spring mix.
Sweetport: There’s always room for ice cream! This local favorite creates flavors inspired by the area’s history. You’ll definitely want to try a scoop (or three) of Caddough, their cookie-dough flavored ice cream named for the Louisiana region it comes from—Caddo Parish.
