The mosaic at the memorial was made from pieces of glass, pottery, and other types of ceramics recovered after the storm. The artist took these pieces and made a mosaic in the shape picturing a...

  • Stop at the Visitors Center

    It's always a good idea to stop at a visitors center upon entering a new state but in Mississippi, this is an especially good idea. Those polite Southerners;-) They offer you a choice of beverage upon entering so while you get help with maps or pick up a few free brochures, you can sip on water, Sprite, or Coca-Cola.Note: This happened to me at the...

  • The Magnolia State

    Of the 50 United States there is not one which better represents the "Deep South" than the state of Mississippi. And there is no more fitting symbol of Mississippi than the stately evergreen Magnolia tree. It's no wonder that Mississippi is known as "The Magnolia State."Several varieties of magnolia are found throughout the world but it is the...

  • State Capitol Building

    Jackson is the largest city in Mississippi as well as the state capital. Here, you will find the historic govenment buildings in this southern city. The state capitol building is crowned with a large dome and an eagle on top. The building as a whole looks very similar to the national capitol building in Washington DC.

  • Free and easy

    Mississippi was a state where I felt that I could actually be lazy and not feel guilty about it. Maybe it comes from the friendly, slow way that people talk and treat you, or from the trees that have the moss growing on them reminding you of a southern plantation. It is definately a state where you don't have to be in a hurry!

  • Gamblin´ Blues

    Visit the casinos at Biloxi. The city at the Gulf Coast is a gambling town. The photo shows one of the casinos at the shoreline. Passing through the state in the Greyhound bus while the sun rose above the swamps. And out of the earphones of my walkman sounded some dirty blues.

    Tunica is a fun place for gambling. Its along the river and the casino town is just sorta by itself a great place to get away and relax too. Gold Strike is the tallest casino and one of the nicest and it has cheap rates esp. thru the week. They have great buffets and a spa, a pool, and a workout room. Most casinos have shows too.

  • When visiting Mississippi, you...

    When visiting Mississippi, you absolutely must take a drive on the scenic Natchez Trace. It is a very beautiful experience. 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...

  • Go to the Gulf of Mexico!

    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.

    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. Have lots of good memories. Not any big money winning memories just lots of little trips with a full stomach from the buffets.

  • There is plenty offered in ...

    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.

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...

    Anywhere in early April. It's beautiful. Deep sea fishing is a must! The smell of mimosa and honeysuckle on a soft summer night, pine trees, rain.

    Drive along the gulf coast. The communities are beautiful. 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.

    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. fishing in the Bay St. Louis and WATCHING the schools of fish swim by my lure. What a beautiful bay.
