Louisiana Downs Review Jump to comments

Harrah’s Louisiana Downs in Bossier City offers visitors a spacious facility featuring world-class horse racing and a casino with 1,300 slot machines. There is also 20,000 square feet of meeting space ready to accommodate anything from a small wedding or company party to a meeting with 1,200 guests. The racetrack is a sight to behold and the dining and entertainment options offer lavish comforts.

The racetrack opened on 350 acres of grounds to a cheering crowd of 15,000 fans in 1974 and the rest of the area still looks at Harrah’s Louisiana Downs as the grandfather of wagering in this growing area. Visitors to the track or casino have great choices for dining during racing season, and there is some shopping - but just like with concert entertainment, most will visit Horseshoe Bossier City for big-name concerts, dining and shopping on the new Louisiana Boardwalk and still be able to use their Rewards Card for discounts.

SpringHill Suites by Marriott is located right on the Harrah’s Louisiana Downs grounds.
