Mississippi is a paradise for music writers and connoisseurs, so to be here and not to be at least once in a place associated with art is a true crime. Go to a jazz concert – the benefit of clubs with this music in the cities of Mississippi are present in an enviable amount. The state gave the world the famous writer William Faulkner – visit his Rowan Oak house, preserved in the same form as it was during the life of the creator. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
You should visit Vicksburg National Park, also known as the Military Historical Park. During the war in the nineteenth century, Jackson was besieged – for a month and a half. The main attractions – preserved forts and other military fortifications in the park – to this day remind of those years. In total, the park has about 1,400 memorials and memorials. Here you can literally feel like a participant in the battle: on the territory there are preserved trenches and ditches, the total length of which exceeds thirty kilometers, as well as old houses and more than a hundred guns. Entrance to Vicksburg is paid, but there are also open days.
Jackson is a city that was destroyed to the ground during the war between the northern troops and the southerners, therefore, there are practically no historical objects in it. If you are interested in history, then visit the Capitol. The building itself was built in the first half of the nineteenth century, and now the state historical museum is located inside, mainly represented by exhibits related to the struggle of residents for rights.
We also recommend visiting the Museum of Agriculture and Forestry in Jackson. A significant exhibit here is agricultural land built in the mid-nineteenth century. Another interesting object of a permanent exhibition is a miniature street of the thirties of the last century, on which there is a candy store. With children of all ages, head to the Münell Ardens Zoo or the State Museum of Natural Sciences. Visit the folk-art gallery for a tour of Native American creations and some souvenirs made by the Indians.
Biloxi is another significant city in the state of Mississippi. It is not only a tourist magnet, but also an important port. Do you consider yourself a gambler? If yes, then here for your entertainment the doors of many gambling clubs are open (casinos, of course, are legal!). You can choose to stay in Beau Rivage.
