Hit the road and see the Gulf Coast this summer, have a crisp adventure in Columbus this winter, and just plain enjoy yourself any time in between.

Why not start with central Mississippi? Discover the unique cities and sites along Highway 82, spanning central Mississippi from the Delta to the Alabama border. Check out Indianola, Greenwood, and Columbus for the B.B. King Museum & Delta Interpretive Center and the Tennessee Williams Home, plus picturesque state parks, golf courses, and restaurants.

Now explore northern Mississippi. From casinos to the King’s birthplace, northern Mississippi is busting with history, music, heritage, and outdoor adventure. Pack your itinerary with National Park sites, the Elvis Presley Birthplace, outdoor fun like fishing, golf, and waterskiing, and must-catch festivals like the Elvis Presley Festival and the Faulkner Festival. It’s all here at the top of the Magnolia.

There's plenty to see and do when you drive through the gulf region of Mississippi. Cities like Biloxi and Moss Point yield fun-filled days. Don't miss the Pascagoula River Audubon Center in Moss Point, and be sure to check out the Great Southern Golf Club in Gulfport. If your sights are set on Jackson, you'll have a wealth of top attractions to visit. 

Don't miss a chance to tour the Central Mississippi Multicultural Center & Museum – found in Canton, it's a short drive from downtown Jackson. You can explore the Mississippi Children's Museum with the kids, or explore the depths of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum – both found in downtown Jackson.

The Delta Region of Mississippi has it's own unique blend of attractions, historic sites, and outdoor fun. Plan a drive through this region and cities like Natchez, Vicksburg, and Yazoo City. There are few better regions in the state that can yield top views of the Mighty Mississippi River – don't miss the Oakes African Cultural Center, or the Clear Creek Golf Club.
