The Magnolia state bordered by the mighty Mississippi River on the western side is a popular resting place for road trippers. Sandwiched between Louisiana on the west, Arkansas to the north-west, Tennessee to the north and Alabama to the east, is chock full of rich history, bright beaches, cool blues, soulful cuisine, and warm welcomes.

Hit the town and sit in a late-night blues club in the Delta, visit one of the homes of the state’s many famous novelists, see the hometown of the King himself Elvis Presley, or explore the numerous art districts and let Mississippi inspire you.

Highlights of Mississippi

Clarksdale
The epicentre of the Delta Blues scene, perfectly located within a few hours of all the popular Blues locations, and big-names in the world of blues are known to visit on weekends. There is a warmth here that makes people want to extend their stay, so plan plenty of time to become enchanted by Clarksdale.
Rowan Oak
Visit Rowan Oak in Oxford, Mississippi, home to author William Faulkner from 1930 to his death in 1962.  You can embark on a self-guided tour of, in Faulkner's own words, his 'postage stamp of native soil'.
Jackson
The capital of Mississippi doesn't disappoint, huge stately homes give way to gritty city streets and an amazing art scene in the Fondren District. Whilst you're here, we recommend visiting the newly opened Museum of Mississippi History, and it's neighbour, the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.
Natchez
Overlooking a portion of the famous Mississippi river, Natchez is the oldest post-European Settlement, beating New Orleans to the title by a mere two years! The city is stuffed with historic buildings and live music venues, ready for your to dance the night away!
Natchez Trace Parkway
A popular travel corridor in the 1800's, the 444-mile Natchez Trace Parkway is now a National Park, frequented by road trippers and cyclists alike. The beautiful scenic drive displays a wide range of Southern landscapes, thick forests, soggy wetlands, rolling hills, and miles of farmland.
Tupelo
A sleepy northern Mississippi town that's well known for being the birthplace of the King himself, Elvis Presley. Tupelo is a great place to start your Natchez Trace Parkway adventure, but is also home to a great culinary scene and some fantastic street art. It's a fantastic town to spend a night in before continuing your journey through the state.
Mississippi Arts & Entertainment Experience
Opened in 2018, the Mississippi Arts & Entertainment Experience celebrates the rich cultural history of Mississippi, everything from music, literature, and art, to media, dance, and cuisine! Check out the hall of fame for huge portraits of homegrown legends such as Elvis, Oprah, and Eudora (Mississippians don't need last names). There are loads of fantastic interactive exhibits here to keep visitors of all ages occupied.
