DESTINATIONS IN MISSISSIPPI
MISSISSIPPI is divided into five (5) areas:
The hills of Northeast Mississippi offer the excitement of exploration. The sweeping beauty of vistas for each hilltop entices a desire for sailing and water skiing ... hunting and fishing ... hiking and camping ... all of which are easily available. These forests are the inspiration of author William Faulkner and have a history steeped in grand Southern traditions. Whether visiting an antebellum mansion or cheering an Ole Miss Rebels football game, the flavor of the deep south is here for the tasting.
Destinations: Corinth, Hernando, Oxford
The Mississippi Delta is a special place. The oldest of Southern traditions are still alive here ... family plantations are still producing cotton as well as other modern cash crops. The charm and hospitality of its people will welcome you with an outpouring of emotions. This is where the Delta Blues were inspired and are nurtured just like the crops that flourish in its soil. As you crest the last hill and begin your descent into its vast fertile area, the view will be one you won't soon forget.
From the quiet hum of activity on a town square to the mysterious stillness of legendary Indian Mounds, the relaxing atmosphere of the plains is a Southern legacy. Add the stimulation of festivals, music, art, the theatre, Spring Pilgrimages, harness racing and country cooking and you'll discover a place with a deep sense of culture. No one knows better how to have fun or relax than the people of the plains.
Destinations: Aberdeen, Columbus, French Camp, Kosciusko, Laurel, Meridian, Slate Springs, Starkville, West
The bluffs that overlook the vast Mississippi River are rich with images of a past grandeur and grace. The Civil War are a historic reminder of the end of an era. Mississippi's Heartland offers a playground to see history come to life. Natchez and Vicksburg present the antebellum life complete with hoop skirts and mint juleps. In contrast, the capital city of Jackson abounds with cultural events such as the International Ballet Competition (held every four years), opera, symphony and theatre. People enjoy their Heartland and enjoy sharing the history, culture and fun of this area.
Destinations: Jackson, Lorman, Natchez, Port Gibson, Vicksburg
THE GULF COAST|
The sugar white sand and gentle breezes of the Mississippi Gulf Coast provide travelers with relaxing vistas as well as exhilarating adventures. Deep sea fishing, wind surfing and many other sporting thrills are there for the taking. Inland from the beaches, you will find a wealth of attractions such as the NASA space laboratories, national forests and water parks. This area also has many festivals and each is a colorful party with flamboyant costumes and exhilarating people. A recharging zest for living is contagious to all visitors.
