Welcome to Mississippi!

Mississippi is a classic state of the Deep South. The state capital, Jackson, is its largest city. In addition to the State Capitol building, Jackson is also home to many museums, such as the Mississippi Museum of Art, which contains the state's largest art collection, and the National Agricultural Aviation Museum. The two major cities along the Mississippi Gulf Coast are Biloxi and Gulfport. This area is a Mecca for beach-lovers, gambling enthusiasts and fishermen. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico lap the shore while the lights of moored casinos, such as the Boomtown Casino in Biloxi, sparkle. Numerous fishing trips and charters are available in Biloxi and Gulfport year-round. The University of Mississippi, or Ole Miss as it is fondly nicknamed, is located in Oxford. Also situated in North Mississippi is the Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum in Tupelo. Historic Vicksburg lies on the shores of the Mississippi River with many bed and breakfast inns and the Vicksburg National Military Park.
