The history of the state of Mississippi is long and colorful. There have been years of stress and years of celebration.
Mississippi history and Mississippi tourism is drawing people to the state that are interested in learning about how the Deep South survived the Civil War, the segregation issues and the move from primarily and agricultural economic base to a more industrialized economic base.
The beauty of the state draws those that just want to enjoy spending time in a more casual paced environment where the hustle and bustled of the busy cities is left behind as you travel the back roads of Mississippi and meet the gracious people that live there.
Taking some time to stop at some of the smaller communities and visiting with the local people will give you an opportunity to hear their stories, the local history and eat some of the fabulous southern cooking that convinces you that there may not be anyplace on earth that can be sweeter to visit than Mississippi.
