Road Trip from DFW

Need some suggestions! My husband and I are taking a vacation The second week of July. We will be driving from Ft. Worth over to Shreveport for a day or so and then off to Hot Springs, AR for the rest of the week. We are really interested in finding new off the wall places and experiencing things we can't in Texas. What is your favorites road, attraction, restaurant, place to stay along this route? I've done so much research my eyes are crossed! But what better way to find some cool stuff than to ask the people who have been there?! Ready....set....post! And thanks in advance!!

Be sure to visit the Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City while you are here. It is on the Red River, and there are lots of shops as well as good restaurants there. It sits between Horseshoe and the new Margaritaville Casino which just opened this week.

Thanks! We most definitely plan on checking that out!

Would you suggest visiting one casino over another? We will be looking for a decent place to stay. Doesn't need to be fancy, but not terrible either.

Thanks again!

Horseshoe has the nicest rooms-although all of them are above average. If you have a player's card from one of the casinos you will get the best rate-depending on how much you play, your room may be comped. I haven't been to the new Margaritaville yet, so you might could get a room there since it's so new.

Our favorite Casino/Hotel in Shreveport is Eldorado. Their room rates, posted on line for Sun-Thurs the second week in July are $123/night. Here is their link http://www.eldoradoshreveport.com/#
