On the west coast of Mississippi, Vicksburg has become a cultural hotspot, with skyrocketing tourism adding tons of attractions and places to go to the area. Whether you are a lifelong resident of Vicksburg or are simply passing through, here are few of the places that you are going to want to check out while you are here:

Vicksburg National Military Park

This military park includes 1,800 acres of scenic countryside, though it is built upon the scene of a particularly bloody Civil War battle. You can learn all about it and Vicksburg's crucial role during the War at this top-notch park that will delight any history buff.

Vicksburg Riverfront Murals

Or, if you are looking for a bit more tranquility on your trip, then take a stroll down the river and examine the many Riverfront Murals. In 2002, renowned artist Robert Dafford created the first of these murals, which have spread down the river with other artists following suit.

The Old Depot Museum

For the car-lover in all of us, we recommend the Old Depot Museum, which explores all modes of older transportation and specifically how they related to the historic Siege of Vicksburg. From automobiles to boats, this museum has it all, including model railroads.

Catfish Row Children's Art Park

Finally, no trip to Vicksburg would be complete without a stop at Catfish Row, for both children and adults alike, which aims to demonstrate what life was like in Vicksburg long ago, with paddle wheel steamboats and more. The perfect opportunity to learn in the fresh air.

And of course, while you are in the area, consider stopping by to see us at Blackburn CDJR. Our giant selection of new and used vehicles may just include your next vehicle, and we'd be happy to set you up on a test drive!
