Shreveport – Things to do with your Team

Although you might not have heard of Shreveport, Louisiana’s “Other Side,” before, it’s a city unlike any other in the South. Considered to be the commercial and cultural center of the Ark-La-Tex region, where Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas meet, Shreveport brings together the best of each state all in one unique city.

Shreveport began as shipping port on the banks of the Red River, which was at the time only recently made navigable. Almost 200 years later, Shreveport is a bustling metropolitan area where fun things to see and do with your team aren’t hard to find.

This 92,000-square-foot science and entertainment center features over 290 science, math, and space exhibits, as well as educational programs offered daily, Louisiana’s only IMAX Dome Theatre, a laser Space Dome Planetarium, gift shop, and café.
