Vicksburg Bridge reviews
Stop by the visitor center to view the old and new bridges. At least you can drive across the new bridge. Sadly, you cannot walk or bicycle across either bridge--Vicksburg, come into the 21st century! more »
This is a very cool stop. Make it a point to pull off the interstate as you cross the Mississippi River between Louisiana and Mississippi. There is a historical marker for the Vicksburg Siege on May..... more »
