There's Loads of Selection in this Port City

Shreveport and Bossier City, Louisiana, have announced several new behind-the-scenes and hands-on tours. Your group travelers can participate in a wide range of activities from food tastings to walking in the footsteps of legends like Elvis Presley.

When your guests plan their trip to the city of Shreveport, they may be excited to find out that the Wyndham Garden Hotel recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.

The massive Wyndham Garden renovation began in January 2015 and includes updates to the hotel's meeting spaces, guest rooms and common areas. The hotel is now home to the area's only exclusive club level and executive concierge lounge. The new executive club level features renovated executive guestrooms complete with all the comfort of home. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a selection of beverages are available during evening receptions in the executive level lounge. The hotel's new general manager, Victoria Meyers said, "Service and quality are the two biggest contributing factors to a successful hotel, and we have those here at the Wyndham Garden."

While in Shreveport, guests with a penchant for flowers may enjoy a visit to the American Rose Center, where they can walk around the nation's largest rose-dedicated park. Group travelers can delight in chocolate and wine during a unique pairing experience at Jimmy's Seafood & Steak at Margaritaville Resort Casino. Visitors can also discover the "Art and Soul" of the African and African-American experience at Southern University Museum of Art.

And there's plenty more to do! Many other exciting activities await your guests in this port city. Visit Shreveport-Bossier: Louisiana's Other Side for details.
