What to do in Mississippi

Where can I find unique dining experiences in Mississippi? 

If you want to go beyond the traditional environment or fare and find some unique restaurants in Mississippi, Only In Your State is here for you. For a bit of time traveling, you can step inside Borroum’s Soda Fountain in Corinth to eat a tough-to-beat lunch. Originally built in 1865, Borroum’s maintains much of its original charm. We recommend a cherry phosphate with a deep-fried slug burger (much more appetizing than it sounds!) Or if you want your meal cooked with some of the freshest produce possible, eat at a refurbished fruit stand. The Tomato Place in Vicksburg sources its veggies locally and makes the most scrumptious food. Don’t forget to look around at all the art covering the walls, this place is almost as much of a craft museum as it is a restaurant!

A meal at Mary Mahoney’s is also sure to never disappoint. Can you imagine having a scrumptious meal in one of the oldest homes in the country? This house has been around since 1737 and the current owners have worked hard to retain much of the old-world glamour that was built into the house. And not only is the atmosphere perfection, the food (American classics with an upscale twist) is absolutely to die for.

What are the most fun museums in Mississippi? 

There are a shocking number of wacky and unique museums in Mississippi, many of which offer free admission! You might have never known it otherwise, but the only apron museum in America lives in Luka, Mississippi and it’s just as charming as it sounds. The museum is only one room and holds 3,500 aprons and information about their makers and owners. Lovers of handicrafts will feel right at home here. Equally heartwarming and one-of-a-kind is the Birthplace of Kermit the Frog Museum. Here, you can see rooms full of Muppet memorabilia and merchandise and even three of the original Muppets! And if your group has one of those people who is always checking the time, then a visit to the Cullis and Gladys Wade Clock Museum might be in order. With more than 400 clocks and other timepieces, some reaching nearly 300 years old, you’ll never need to check the clock of your phone while in this cool space.

Are there any fun tours to take in Mississippi? 

No matter what you want to learn about while you visit the Magnolia State, there is likely a tour in Mississippi that will help you out! You can tour through the historic, Greek Revival-style Governor’s Mansion to learn more about the history of the state and its government. Or for something spooky, tour through the Glenwood or Natchez city cemetery. Wildlife enthusiasts can tour the Tupelo Buffalo Park, which is home to more than 300 magnificent buffalo. And lovers of space can hop on a bus and take a tour of the Stennis Space Center with NASA! A great choice for the whole family is the Possum Walk Tram Trail Tour, which leads you through two ghost towns and teaches you about the towns before they were deserted.
