Favorite thing: There are a lot of nice old houses in the heart of the old town. Many of them, such as the Belle of the Bends have been converted into bed and breakfast establishments. Every one of these homes seems to have an interesting story behind them. many of them are available for touring. There is usually a nominal fee. Perhaps you might hear a ghost story of two.

Start at the Visitors Centre
Favorite thing: The first place to visit is the Vicksburg Visitor Centre. Not only for the brochures and information, complimentary soda or coffee (or perhaps the comfort stop) but also because the centre sits on the bluff right between the two bridges spanning the Mississippi. This photo was taken out the back of the Visitor's centre - see what I mean.
Watch the Mississippi River go by.
Favorite thing: Find one of the parks overlooking the river and spend some time watching the water and the boat traffic.
