What is it like living in Mississippi? Explore where we live, work, and play!

You can summer in Europe or you can summer, right here, in Mississippi. With work and family obligations, it can be challenging to get out of the state and country for the summer. Thankfully, Mississippi has plenty of options for you to spend some time this summer. 

What do you think about when you envision Vicksburg? Vicksburg is located in West Mississippi. Full of rich history and places to visit, Vicksburg is definitely a great city to visit. This special city embodies both freedom and bravery.
