Blanchard is just north of Shreveport. I like it for several reasons. First, it is close to Shreveport/Bossier City area - only about 15 minutes when I get on Pine Hill Road and then take Highway 71 to I-222 or I-20. I can get from Shreveport Airport to Blanchard on I-222 and Highway 173 quickly and easily. Blanchard is so close to Shreveport and Bossier City, I can go to dinner there or head north to Dixie Jamboree in Ruston to hear country music.
