Deep in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, on the banks of Lake Fergusson, just a short drive from the home of the blues, Greenville’s waters grow writers.

Learn about Greenville’s contributions at the Greenville History Museum, as well as other cultural centers and historical stops in Greenville.

Natchez Indians and the first French explorers shared this beautiful piece of the river for many years. Officially founded in 1716, Natchez is the oldest city on the Mississippi River. Wherever you go, you’ll experience another piece of history, including unique shops, restaurants, museums and the historic homes of Natchez.
Day 6: St. Francisville, LA
The original settlement of Bayou Sara was destroyed by flooding and fires. Many of the structures were hauled up the bluff to St. Francisville, where they still stand.

Day 7: Baton Rouge, LA
The Capital of Louisiana offers a unique look at the history and flavor of the state. If you’re looking forward to practicing your French skills, beware: the locals speak a specific version of French only found here.
