Bossier-City is located on the east bank of the Red River, directly across from the city of Shreveport in Northwest Louisiana. The estimated population is 61,306 residents. Bossier City has close ties to its sister city - Shreveport. Bossier City was founded in the 1830s with the establishment of the Elysian Groves Plantation of James and Mary Cane. Steamboat loads of cotton, corn and sweet potatoes were shipped to markets all through the south and east coast from the plantation port, which became known to many as "Canes Landing." Bossier City is home to many attractions, including three major riverboat casinos and a first class thoroughbred race track with slot machines. Bossier City has beautiful parks and open spaces for recreational activities, cultural offerings and great restaurants. The city is home to Touchstones Wildlife and Art Museums, which features more than 1,000 animals from around the world as well as displays of American Indian artifacts and memorabilia from the Civil War and World Wars I and II. Across the river, Shreveport offers unlimited fun and entertainment, from trendy night spots and restaurants to museums, galleries, shopping and much more. A few of the Shreveport/Bossier City attractions include the Sci-Port Discovery Center, the Gardens of the American Rose Center, Decembers Red River Revel Arts Festival and Junes Let the Good Times Roll Festival in October.
