Biloxi

Playground of the South

A busy city on the Gulf Coast, Biloxi is one of the nation's oldest communities, first settled by Europeans in 1699.
You'll explore and learn at Mississippi Coast Model Railroad Museum and Lynn Meadows Discovery Center. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Walter Anderson Museum of Art and Spas. There's much more to do: walk around Jones Park, play a few rounds at Shell Landing Golf Course, tour the pleasant surroundings at Biloxi Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Jackson

Jackson, officially the City of Jackson, is the capital city and largest urban center of the U.S. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mississippi Museum of Natural Science and Eudora Welty House and Garden. Old Capitol Museum and Mississippi Museum of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Jackson's surroundings by going to Vicksburg (U.S.S. Cairo Museum, The Old Depot Museum, &more). Next up on the itinerary: view the masterpieces at Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, contemplate the long history of Medgar Evers Home, see the interesting displays at International Museum of Muslim Cultures, and get a sense of history and politics at Mississippi State Capitol.

The Magnolia State
Still relatively unspoiled by mass tourism, Mississippi epitomizes rich history and offers warm hospitality to those who vacation here. The Mississippi River forms most of its western border, so it's no surprise that this mighty waterway shapes the lives of people calling the "Magnolia State" their home. The river influences everything from the food they eat to the music they listen to. Perhaps the easiest way to discover Mississippi is to take a drive on the 715 km (444 mi) long national parkway, which follows a route used since pre-colonial times that's famous for its scenic beauty and attractions of historical interest. At the end of the parkway sits a town packed with nearly 600 antebellum homes.
