The Magnolia State Fiber Festival is the summer-time event for all things fiber-related in the deep south! Watch for updates as information is available.
This is my home state! I’ll be there! I’m available to connect with you and answer any questions you may have about touring the wonderful magnolia state!
The Vicksburg National Military Park is nearby. This is a drive-through park with many stops available. Some of the battlefields of the Siege of Vicksburg are within this park and it is and educational and somber experience. Plan to spend a minimum of 2 hours just for driving through with a few stops. History buffs or those with a higher level of interest will want to allow a minimum of 4 hours.
Drop in at the Mississippi Welcome Center for photo ops with the Mississippi River and bridges. The bridge to the left is known as the old river bridge or the railway bridge. The white bridge to the right is the newer bridge and is used for vehicle traffic.
Rusty’s is a favorite restaurant and very close to the hotel and conference center. There may be a wait for seating, but the food is delicious and oh, so very southern. Here’s my Tripadvisor review from a couple of years ago. If you’ve never enjoyed fried green tomatoes, this is the ideal place for the first try as an appetizer. Yummy! I’ll see you there!
