Getting around Mississippi

Bus service along the coast is frequent, but less frequent inland. Trains run through the state, stopping at Jackson and Greenwood. Steamboating down the Mississippi River with ports of call at several cities is a relaxing but expensive tour of the western part of the state. Off the river, the best way to see Mississippi is by car.

The Delta is best seen from its back roads. You need to be careful as this is a gun-toting area, encounters with the local police are to be avoided, and camping is not recommended. That said, the birthplace of the blues has great music, scenery, and festivals, so book ahead.

The unspoiled Natchez Trace Parkway has no commercial vehicles, no advertising, and no commercial buildings. A two-lane meander from Jackson to Tupelo with plenty of places to stop. This parkway is also popular with bicycle tours.

Once you are in Natchez and Vicksburg, bus and horse-drawn carriage tours take you to the sights and battlefields. Downtown Natchez can also be explored on foot.

Along the Gulf Coast, beachcomber trolleys run from the beach to the business center of Gulfport.

Mississippi Travel Information

  • If you’re in Natchez and crave some real Southern cooking, head for the King’s Tavern. It is in the oldest building in the town, and it’s said a ghost still roams the streets. History and haunting aside, the restaurant is one of the most popular for traditional Southern food.
  • No trip to the Mississippi would be complete without an excursion on the huge river the state is named after. You can explore the “mighty water” from canoe, kayak or boat. One of the more relaxing excursions is to take a trip in a paddle boat. River tours are available from many of the towns that sit on the river.
  • The main Elvis site is of course, Graceland, but the King was born in a small house in Tupelo. True Elvis fans book flights to Mississippi to visit the King’s birthplace.
  • The only cactus plantation in the world is found in Mississippi. With a staggering amount of different types of cacti to be seen (more than 3,500 species of plants are found on the plantation), if you want to learn everything there is to know about the prickly succulents head to 1088 Champion Hill Rd in Edwards.
  • A Hurricane Katrina Memorial is situated in the town of Biloxi. Opened in February 2006, the memorial stands 12ft tall: the height of the water during the storm in the middle of town.
