Mississippi Off The Beaten Path

  • Paul B. Johnson State Park

    Paul B. Johnson State Park is one of those small state parks created for family outings and fishing. The park is built around a medium-sized man-made lake about fifteen miles south of Hattiesburg (on Hwy 49). It has the usual stuff that one finds at these recreational state parks.

    There is a big swimstore in the stretch where you can get gifts of any kind and also lots of swimsuits. I forget the name but it has a Huge shark coming out of the building.. like a fibreglass one... that place is pretty cool. I bought a nice bikini there. Then when you get your swimsuit you can walk down to the beach :)

    While traveling in Mississippi you must at least once go along Natchez Trace Parkway. Actually it goes from Louisiana but crosses all Mississippi. It is very scenic highway. Be careful not to break your neck driving there, the nature there indeed is beautiful! The only thing is that speed limit is only 50 mph and there are cops watching for the...
