For some reason, many travelers never make it to Mississippi. Although Mississippi does not have any national parks or famous party towns like New Orleans, it is still a beautiful place to visit. There are countless historical landmarks and places, like Elvis Presley’s birthplace in Tupelo. There are also museums, lighthouses, gardens, and beaches. Did you know that Jackson, Mississippi, even hosts the USA International Ballet Competition? Mississippi is also incredibly RV-friendly, with plenty of campgrounds and interesting Harvest Hosts locations. So grab your Harvest Hosts membership and buckle up as we explore some of the best that Mississippi has to offer.
