Transportation back to airport

Spending 2 nights in Memphis and then 4 in Vicksburg. What is the easiest and best way to get transportation from either memphis to Vicksburg or from Vicksburg to Jackson airport. If needed we will rent a car from Memphis to Vicksburg but would probably take it one way only. Any and all help needed. First time in Mississippi.

I would rent a car.

I mean, theoretically you could take the Greyhound, I guess? But I'd just rent a car. Especially since public transportation in Vicksburg is...minimal. So if you consider how much you'd pay to take bus/taxis/uber after it's all said and done, you probably would end up spending less to just get your own ride (even considering one-ways are more expensive).

There is a public transportation system in Vicksburg. A Day pass is $4. It's not a tour. Other than that the option is a rental and drop off in Jackson at the airport.

No tours but visit the visitor center and they will give you loads of info.

Coca Cola Museum

Murals along MS river

Civil War battlefield park and USS Cairo museum

Historic downtown area

And if you have an extra morning or afternoon head down to Natchez and visit one of the beautiful antebellum plantations.

Favorite restaurants are Rusty's, 10 South or Walnut Hill.

Yes rent a car is best.
