I don't know too many people right now who aren't concerned about the economy and how it's affecting their wallets in Louisiana. But what if you're on a budget but still want to get out of the house? Here are some free/cheap things to do in Shreveport-Bossier City, LA.

What are some cheap or free things to do in the Shreveport-Bossier City area?

This question was recently posted on Reddit and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of insightful responses.

What a fantastic suggestion! I'll be honest, the only time I've been to the R. W. Norton Art Gallery is for photoshoots, and since they don't really allow that anymore, I haven't been since. It's time to rectify that!

I know that there's a growing disc golf following here in Shreveport-Bossier with tons of places to play and if you have your own discs, most of the places that you can play at are free. Check 'em out here.

I'm a big fan of hiking and anything dog-related, so it's no surprise that I like this idea. Here are some great walking trails in our area.

Don't laugh, both Shreve Memorial Libraries and Bossier Parish Libraries have a ton of programming that they offer.

I'm not sure they allow the accompanying wine that my friends and I indulge in on game night at public parks, but you don't have to go to a park...

I don't know if Noble Savage charges a cover when they have live music but a lot of the shows at Hurricane Alley in the East Bank District in Bossier are free.

Have any ideas to add to the list? I'd love to hear from you. Send me a message using our free app or email me at erin.bristol@townsquaremedia.com.
