  • Cruise on the Delta Queen

    by trilly Updated Apr 4, 2011

    If you want the trip of a lifetime in a beautiful boat then take a cruise on the Delta Queen. We've been on 4 cruises with this boat and every time it's as good as the last. Crew are fantastic, the boat is a floating National Historic Monument and the whole thing is worth every penny. They sometimes have special offers on these cruises so look out for them.

    The cruises go up and down the Mississippi and surrounding areas and rivers. If you get a chance to go - do it! The ship has an amazing history, it certainly isn't for those who want hairdressers, cable tv or day-to-day spa treatment but if you want a fantastic social life (or you can just sit and read if you like), amazingly friendly and helpful crew, great food and the best time of your life - go on this boat. No tv/radio or in-room phones! Just a great escape.

    Never been on any of the other similar ships so can't vouch for those.

    Road Trip!

    by ATXtraveler Written Sep 7, 2009

    When you are traveling with children, it is important to keep them occupied on the road. I recommend taking road trips as compared with plane or train travel, just so you can keep all your baby entertainment equipment close at hand. Anna has fun riding in her car seat, because she can easily sleep or watch her DVDs and sometimes even read a book or two.

    Mississippi is not covered by alot of commercial airports, so if you are planning on driving through most of the state, it is recommended to bring your own car. Check with the Mississippi Department of Transportation for road closures and construction before locking into a route.

    Also, because Mississippi is located in a hurricane watch area, make sure you check out the site before travelling to ensure you know all the proper evacuation routes.

    Buses unavailable

    by bsweet Written Apr 14, 2004

    In Pontotoc, Tupelo, New Albany, Mantachie, Houlka, Houston, Oxford and Sardis there are no bus systems to travel on around town. I am sure there are many other cities in the state that do not offer this as well. Please look into this before your trip/scheduling depends upon it.

    Getting to Natchez

    US Highways 61, 84, and 98 intersect in Natchez which connects the city with the metropolitan areas of Memphis, Baton Rouge and Mobile. Interstate 55 is 60 miles east of Natchez via four-lane US Highway 84. The Natchez Trace Parkway is a very scenic route travelling through a 450-mile national park. The Trace Parkway begins in Natchez and connects the city with Jackson (the state capital) and ends in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Getting to the Gulf Coast

    by keeweechic Updated Feb 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By Road : U.S. Interstate 10 connects the east and west coasts from Los Angeles to Jacksonville and passes through New Orleans, Houston and Phoenix. You can take Hw 90 as we did for a more scenic route (but slower) from Louisiana to Florida. U. S. Interstates 85/65 and 55 runs north-south from Atlanta, Memphis, St. Louis and Chicago.

    By Air : There are regular daily flights from a number of cities direct into the Gulfport/Biloxi Regional Airport.

    By Rail : Amtrak connects the east and west coast from Orlando to Los Angeles including a stop in Biloxi.

    By Bus : Greyhound Line travels to Gulfport from most US cities.

    Highway 49 to the gulf

    by WFTR Written Dec 30, 2002

    After visiting a state park just south of Hattiesburg, I continued south on Hwy 49 instead of backtracking to Hattiesburg to catch I-59. I then took Hwy 26 back to the interstate. From what I saw of Hwy 49, it would be a good road to take to Gulfport or other destinations on the coast. Sometimes people are a little hesitant to venture off the interstates when they are in a hurry. From what I saw, most of the highway has a speed limit of 65 and few towns with traffic lights. I wouldn't hesitate to take this road.

    Passing through

    I passed through Mississippi on Highway 12. The road crosses the state from east to west close to the Gulf of Mexico. It´s a pretty nice and picturesque drive. I also drove through the northeast corner of Mississippi. But that was at night and I didn´t see a lot.

  • Jackson has many flights going...

    by atharo2000 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Jackson has many flights going out of Mississippi, so if your coming from the States you can easily catch a flight. Otherwise, you could come by train on the Chicago to New Orleans train.
    In Mississippi, it is best to rent a car, since there isnt much traffic and you will have more freedom to go wherever you want.
