About Barksdale AFB

Resting just on the bank of the Red River and across from its sister city of Shreveport, is bustling Bossier City, Louisiana. People began settling here nearly 200 years ago, and it has been growing ever since, in large part due to one of the area's largest employers Barksdale Air Force Base. Barksdale is home to the 8th Air Force and 2nd Bomb Wing.

Bossier City holds many different attractions, with something for everyone no matter what time in the day. If you are looking for exciting nightlife, look no further than the area's three major riverboat casinos, or maybe even Harrah's Louisiana Down, a thoroughbred racetrack. Bossier City even shares women's roller derby team with Shreveport! During the day, feel free to visit the beautiful area parks and open spaces.

With a mild climate, low tax base, a wonderful school system and easy access to major highways, it's no wonder that over 65,000 people call Bossier City home. Come see for yourself what makes this city so great!
