Located along the shores of the Mississippi River and the cusp of the Louisiana border lies Vicksburg. This historic town is known as the site where a key Civil War battle took place. Visitors to the area are encouraged to spend time at the Vicksburg National Military Park to explore the site of the American Civil War Battle of Vicksburg and take a stroll along the Vicksburg Heritage Walking Trail that winds around 35 historical markers.
Of course, a trip to Vicksburg would be remiss without a visit to the Old Depot Museum where history runs rampant. Here you’ll be able to enjoy the Siege of Vicksburg historical exhibits and artifacts. For something a little more closer to today’s timeline, stop in at the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum, where the first bottles of America’s beloved soft drink were bottled. When you fly into the jet charter airport in Vicksburg, you’ll find yourself in one of the most historic areas in the South.
For something a little more relaxed, take a trip downtown. Here you’ll discover local boutiques that sell must-have souvenirs, eclectic antiques, jewelry, vintage fashion finds, and art pieces not found anywhere else. You’ll also stumble across authentic Southern comfort food and established brewpubs.
If you’re looking to let your hair down, Vicksburg is home to a few spas that will help you relax and unwind. The Secret Garden Spa and the Loft Salon & Spa are just two options among many.
