Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Mississippi, USA your home away from home

Mississippi, the “Magnolia State”, is in central southern USA and has a real feel of the Deep South. It is famous for its southern hospitality, and you are sure to come across examples of it many times during your stay in a Mississippi holiday rental.

Things to Do in Mississippi

The mighty Mississippi, often called “Ole Man River” flows along the western border of the state providing opportunities for boating, fishing and watersports. Many places have steam-driven paddle-wheelers that still ply the river, taking visitors on scenic tours. The southern coastline of Mississippi is a tourist playground and is popular with artists and nature lovers. Sample the history of Mississippi’s blues tradition at the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale and enjoy live blues in many bars. If you want to see a herd of buffalo, visit the Buffalo Park in Tupelo and take a ride aboard the Monster Bison Bus. On a different note, follow the Deep South Antique and Wines Trail and visit more delightful small communities during your stay in a Mississippi holiday home.
