A Mississippi vacation is filled with a mixture of outdoor adventure and urban exploration. Check out the sprawling countryside on a bike tour or visit one of the many Mississippi cities, ripe with culture and American history. Jackson, the capital of Mississippi, is the largest city in the State and fondly referred to as “the city with soul.” In Jackson there is much to see and do on your vacation. Are you a history buff? Check out one of the many Civil Rights Museums downtown, or take a guided tour of a Civil Rights site in the metro area. Sample a little “down home” southern cooking, while you take in a blues or jazz show. And don’t be surprised if the locals strike up a conversation, Jackson locals are known as being some of the friendliest in the world!
There are many natural wonders and recreational activities to discover within the Mississippi hills. The National Heritage area offers day hikes and the opportunity to learn about the local architecture and culture. Visit the Vicksburg Battlefield Museum or the Black History Gallery in Biloxi, to get better educated about the Civil War days. You can also tour one of the old plantations or Mississippi mansions to get a better feel for the old south. Up for an adventure? Hop the ferry to Ship Island just south of Biloxi, for hiking, swimming and boating activities. Take a bike ride along the Mississippi River or reserve a spot on one of the famed Mississippi River tour boats!
There are hundreds of accommodations to suit all types of travelers in Mississippi. Throughout the state you will find many Bed and Breakfasts that will offer genuine southern hospitality, or larger hotel chains better suited for families. Mississippi is a year round travel destination; in the summer there are many music festivals and cooking events, and in the winter, there are football games, museums and delicious barbeque to be enjoyed!
Plan your vacation today and make Mississippi your next stop!
