North Mississippi Trip Planner
Welcome to North Mississippi!Northern Mississippi is bordered on three sides by Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama. The area is known for its historic sites, landmarks and natural attractions. Examples of African and Native American culture throughout Mississippi show a legacy of enduring spirit in the state's long civil rights battle. A marker on the Mississippi Freedom Trail can be found at the University of Mississippi in Oxford. Corinth's importance in Civil War history is well documented at its interpretive center and the Crossroads Museum. The Corinth Contraband Camp is a refugee camp that once housed up to 6,000 escaped slaves seeking freedom in the state's north behind Union lines in 1862. Battlegrounds remain scattered between lavish antebellum homes, the humble birthplace of Elvis Presley and William Faulkner's former private residence. Visitors can try their luck at the bright casino resorts in Tunica or enjoy the area's powerful natural beauty. Tunica's RiverPark features a nature trail, river cruises and a 48-ft (15-m) river overlook and is also home to the Mississippi River Museum. Ideal day hikes or scenic drives wind through Greenville's Cypress Preserve and the Natchez Trace Parkway.
