When visiting Mississippi, you absolutely must take a drive on the scenic Natchez Trace. It is a very beautiful experience.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Mississippi is going out to the Barrier Islands on the coast. Its worth a visit, but there are plenty of mosquitos, so I would advise to take a repellant when you go there. Ships will be able to take you from the mainland, but you could also bring your own boat for your private cruise.
Visit the Casino's at Robinsonville. There is Hollywood, Harrah's, Sam's Town, Isle of Capri, Fitzgeralds, Gold Strike, Horseshoe, Sheraton, The Grand Casino and Bally's.
I have also visited the Gulfport and Biloxi area.
Fondest memory: Have lots of good memories. Not any big money winning memories just lots of little trips with a full stomach from the buffets.
Favorite thing: There is plenty offered in Mississippi from Natchez to Tunica, the old and the new. I recommend a drive up old highway 61, I've done it several times, you get to see cotton fields and steam boats, neon lights and poker chips, plantations and shanty towns, all with in a short drive along the famous Mississippi River.
Favorite thing: Mississippi can be experienced better no place than the Gulf Coast! We have it all; gambling, beaches, fine cuisine, shopping, and a fabulous nightlife! If you want to honestly say that you have been to Mississippi, come on down to the Gulf Coast and experience true Southern hospitality at it's finest!
Visit Oxford. I bet you've been told this already. I lived in Oxford for a large chunk of my life so far, and there is no cooler place in Mississippi. Understand what Faulkner was going on about. See our cute Square (many movies filmed here). Visit Ole Miss, which is beautiful and exactly what you'd expect from a state school in the Deep South. I hate the word 'quirky,' but you gotta use it -- I mean, the Square features a British phone booth (it works) and the city bought a double-decker red bus in celebration of Oxford's namesake. Come on, it's quirky.
Fondest memory: The sounds. The music and the people talking. I ran into some southerners (tourists) near my home a few weeks ago and wanted to hug them because they sounded like home. :)
Drive along the gulf coast. The communities are beautiful.
Fondest memory: We visited friends that live there (Ocean Springs) and taking day trips through local parks, resting and relaxing in the southern sunshine, poolside was the highlight for me.
Favorite thing: Visit Oxford. The home of Faulker, Grisham, and Ole Miss (the University of Mississippi), Oxford is a gorgeous old Southern college town with great antebellum architecture and blooming magnolia trees. More so than anywhere else in the South, you can feel like you've stepped into Gone with the Wind. It's just a wonderful little town.
I only visited Pass Christian, but it was as peaceful and local as you can probably get without getting bored.
Fondest memory: fishing in the Bay St. Louis and WATCHING the schools of fish swim by my lure. What a beautiful bay.
Favorite thing: Living along the Mississippi river has its disadvantages. The water levels can rise so high your house is in danger. We saw the solution to that: built your house on poles.
Favorite thing: Visit the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians. There is a museum as well as a reconstructed Natchez Indian House. This is in Natchez, Mississippi.
Fondest memory: Nick, me, Andrea, Jane, Emily, & Marian at Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium in 1996 - Oxford, Mississippi
Favorite thing: Traveling from one casino to the others you will need a car or you can use FREE shuttle buses offered by many of the casinos. The casino where you stay can provide you with a shuttle rounds schedule.
Favorite thing: There are two museums worth visiting in Biloxi. One is the Biloxi Mardi Gras Museum. The other, pictured here, is the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum.
Fondest memory: When I was about 11 we took a boat out to Ship Island. It was my first time to travel way out in the ocean on a boat. I got kinda sick, but it was still a lot of fun.
Anywhere in early April. It's beautiful. Deep sea fishing is a must!
Fondest memory: The smell of mimosa and honeysuckle on a soft summer night, pine trees, rain.
