Mississippi Holidays

Holidays in Mississippi

Known as the birthplace of the blues as well as many of America’s music such as Rock ‘N’ Roll and Country, music in this state runs through the streets into the highways and over the borders. Journeying from Tennessee’s Memphis arrive in Tupelo to see the two bedroom home of Elvis Presley and the museum. Visiting around 8th January, The King’s birthday, or the annual festival in June is particularly fun! In Jackson see many of the filming locations of the film ‘The Help’ including Brent’s Soda Fountain. Lining Mississippi’s Gulf Coast is 26 miles of manmade beaches and small towns, perfect for stops and a few nights of relaxation. 

Alternatively from Memphis drive ‘The Blues Highway’, US Highway 61, from Memphis into Vicksburg to see the Mississippi Delta and make stops at highlights such as the BB King Museum and Delta Interpretative Centre. In Vicksburg, visit the National Military Park where the siege and battle that took place is commemorated. Journey into Natchez, the oldest permanent settlement on the Mississippi River. Here visit one the Antebellum properties such as the Natchez Mansion and take a ride on a horse drawn carriage. Be sure to sample some famous catfish and tamales in the Mississippi Delta region and barbeque on the coast.
