Find Tourist Places in Mississippi

Mississippi is a largely rural state that relied heavily on agriculture especially before the late 20th century. The state suffered from a poor economy for quite a long time but the establishment of gambling sites helped boost it. It had become the second largest gambling site, next to Nevada, prior to Hurricane Katrina and, at present, has been ranked as the 6th largest gambling revenue of any state.   It is also through these gambling areas that the tourism industry of Mississippi has improved. Gambling towns, for example, have sprouted and these include resort towns of Gulfport, Bay St. Louis and Biloxi as well as Natchez, Greenville and Vicksburg. Those looking for particular places to visit can add Vicksburg National Military Park, USS Cairo Museum, Longwood, Natchez Trace Parkway, Mississippi Children’s Museum, Stanton Hall, Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, Rosalie Mansion, Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum and the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in their itinerary.
