Through the centuries travelers have come to Mississippi for many reasons. Some, like Hernando de Soto, came in search of riches. Others, such a Ulysses S. Grant, marched through on their way to glory and fame. Today visitors still find that a trip to Mississippi yields great rewards. From the antebellum mansions of Natchez to the bustling excitement of metropolitan Jackson and from the sultry sea breezes and sun-drenched beaches of the Coast to the bright lights and fast-paced action of Tunica, it all adds up to one great experience.
