It's better to live in Bossier. I've said it for years, but folks in Shreveport somehow think it's better on their side of the river?!?!

As someone who has lived most of her life in Bossier Parish, I'm a little partial. However, I think we do it better in Bossier and Money agrees! In fact, they've placed Bossier City in their list of the Best Places to Live 2019. Yep, that means we're in the top 100 places to live in the entire country!

Granted, we didn't make it into the top ten, but we'll take being the only city or town from Louisiana on the entire list. Clarksville, TN made the top spot, but we won't hold it against them. We'll take #98 and be proud of it!

What helped Bossier City to make the list? Money says our median income is $50,937 and our average home price is $176,937. If you want to be a homeowner, you can do it affordably according to those numbers. They also added that it's sunny 214 days of the year and the average commute for Bossier residents is only 19 minutes. Add that to the fact they're expecting 4.8% job growth, and you have the recipe for success as a community.

Plus, we have the Louisiana Boardwalk! And the CenturyLink Center... and great schools... and Barksdale! So, what do you say now Shreveport?
