On the Road: Dallas to Shreveport

Road tripping between Dallas and Shreveport? There’s so much to see along the way when you take time to leave the Interstate.


A colorful roadside scene in Edom, Texas.

Detour through Ben Wheeler and Edom for coffee and treats at Lanei’s BakeHouse followed by a short art stroll through Edom’s quirky galleries and shops. No time to stop and browse? There’s plenty of colorful curb appeal to enjoy.


Icons of the Texas oil boom can be seen up close and personal in Downtown Kilgore.

Kilgore offers a little slice of Texas history in an easy to access main street area positioned close to I-20. An original Texas oil town, downtown Kilgore is covered with oil derricks to see up close and personal, along with the historic facades of the Crim and Texan theaters. Close to lunchtime? Stop at Brigitta’s for an authentic Hungarian meal.


A pretty scene in downtown Longview.

Across the Interstate, downtown Longview is home to Silver Grizzly Espresso and the independent bookstore Books & Barrels. Books and coffee — two great ways to fuel up for the home stretch into Louisiana!


"Art," a giant Dalmatian sculpture, guards the Shreveport Regional Arts Council building in downtown Shreveport.

When you arrive in Shreveport, be sure to wave hello to "Art" the Dalmatian sculpture and enjoy the many murals on the city’s downtown walls.
