Travelling from Memphis to Vicksburg

Hi, my wife and I are travelling from the UK. We will be spending a few days in Memphis, then travelling to Vicksburg for one night.

Any information about what to do in Vicksburg during the day and on the evening will be gratefully received

During the day:

Visit the Vicksburg National Military Park. If you want a guided tour (a guide will ride in your car with you and explain about the battle and point things out. Ask for David Maggio if you can. I don't remember what the fee is but it's super reasonable.) You don't have to have a guide (they also provide an audio tour or you can just drive yourself) but it can really add to the experience.

You can also visit the downtown area and check out the local shops, riverfront murals, or river museum. Then you can have dinner at 10 South.

Or if you want more local Southern food, check out Walnut Hills or Rusty's Riverfront Grill.

If you want to visit historic homes, there are several to choose from. My favorite is Cedar Grove (they also have a restaurant and it was good when I ate there but that was like...over a decade ago now, hah).

Don't bother with the casinos.

Also, depending on when you're going, the park does offer some "fee free" days: https:/…fee-free-days.htm
