Historic Vicksburg, Mississippi – The ‘Key to the South’

We may have mentioned – we love southern hospitality, especially in Vicksburg, Mississippi!  There is history everywhere in this town.  What is more American that Coca-Cola®?! You have to visit the Biedenharn Coca-Cola® Museum where Coke was first bottled. Visit the Old Courthouse Museum to learn the history of the area including the Natchez Indian tribes, French settlers and artifacts from the Civil War. Enjoy amazing restaurants, great shopping, art galleries – and did we mention – lots of history?!
