Things to Do
Shop at the Villaggio:
It's been over a year since the Villaggio opened in Bossier City, and less
than that since the shopping area expanded to what it is today.
Nestled in North Bossier between Interstate 20 and Hwy 80, the Villaggio
is a 64 acre village, modeled after an Italian town square, and as you
stroll the main street, complete with a clock tower and fountain, you'll
get that old world feel, as though you were strolling in a village in
the heart of Italy.
According to my sources, the apartments are 85% full, and the
lifestyle is calm and upscale. The owners advertise the living as "an
unparalleled blend of specialty retail, dining, office; single and
multi-family residential living where families and residents can stroll,
dine, work, play and be entertained –without leaving the community.
With the addition of offices and condominiums, business people and
families alike can now mix business with pleasure." When complete the
village will house 230 apartments, 55,000 square feet of prime retail,
office/commercial space and upscale private townhomes overlooking a 6-
That doesn't mean, however, that the shops are expensive. To the
contrary, reasonably priced boutiques line the boulevard with unique
wares. There's a coffee shop, a bar and grill, sidewalk cafes, spas, a
pizza shop, a cupcake emporium, a tattoo parlor, and even a day care center. There are
new shops added all the time, and currently there are nearly 20 places
to visit, and all are open to the public. I particularly enjoyed Archie Heberts Sports Bar and Grill, Peaux Pouri Gifts, and Boutique di Bambini.
Heberts has a sport's bar atmosphere with large screen televisions and a
full menu and beverage offerings for their
guests. I tried the fried pickles, a deep south favorite, and was
delighted at the hint of sweetness in the crispy coating, and enjoyed
the large spears rather than the traditional thin slices. For $7.50
this appetizer is plenty for two and will certainly satisfy your hunger
if you choose not to share. Sit outside and enjoy the breezes as you
look out over the lake. It's open on Sunday evening, and live music is
At Peaux Pouri Gifts, I was greeted with a friendly smile and
southern hospitality. The vast array of gifts were all reasonably
priced and the boutique offered something for everyone. This is the
place to find unusual specialty items, novelties and art. They have
special seasonal and holiday gifts as well. Check out their FaceBook page.
The Boutique di Bambini, next door to Peaux Pouri, is a cute little
shop catering to the little ones. They carry an array of original lines
not found in the Bossier/Shreveport area. Shop at Boutique di Bambini
for the newest looks in shoes and apparel for girls and boys, sizes
newborn to eight, as well as, unique accessories and gifts.

A favorite destination for visitors and locals is worth a stop, but riders should know that Bossier City has implemented a dress code on the boardwalk. Colors, doo rags and certain graphic t-shirts are not allowed, and you will be asked to leave. Read the full dress code here.
