The Amazing Historic Park Hiding In Mississippi You’ll Definitely Want To Visit

When it comes to military parks in Mississippi, Vicksburg is probably the first thing that comes to mind, but what if I told you there’s another just as worthy of a visit? Tucked away in the small town of Port Gibson, the Grand Gulf Military Park spans several hundred acres and includes everything from historic buildings to a submarine that was once used to transport bootlegged alcohol.

The Grand Gulf Military Park is located at 12006 Grand Gulf Road in Port Gibson. Get to the park by exiting the Natchez Trace Parkway onto Mississippi Hwy 18 (milepost 41) and drive into Port Gibson. From the courthouse area of Port Gibson, take Anthony St., which becomes Old Mill Rd. You’ll then turn left onto Grand Gulf Rd. and follow it to the park. For more information, click here.
