There are many things to love about living in Shreveport.

The Shreveport-Bossier City area is small enough to navigate with ease yet big enough to offer important amenities to the public. Living in Shreveport or Bossier gives residents access to high-quality healthcare, excellent K-12 and higher education opportunities and a wide range of housing options. Combine all these benefits with a low cost of living and some of the friendliest people in the country, and the result is a region in which a good life is not a pursuit — it’s a standard.

​5TH LOWEST

Louisiana residents enjoy a total tax burden - state and local taxes combined as a percentage of income - that ranks 5th lowest in the nation.
