Natchez, by the Mississippi River, is a city packed with historical architecture and a rich cultural heritage. The city once stood at the end of a prosperous trading route, today called the Natchez Trace Parkway, which has turned into a major attraction for outdoor enthusiasts. While history buffs tour the city’s innumerable antebellum mansions by day, party animals make the most of the city’s buzzing nightlife after dark. Stroll along walking trails through town, admiring historic buildings like the famous Longwood mansion and the Melrose estate, which is now part of the Natchez National Historical Park. Once home to the indigenous Natchez people, the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians is a living museum with a reconstructed traditional homestead and ceremonial mounds. The archeological site of the Emerald Mound, designated as a National Historic Landmark, is worth a visit. The nearby Windsor Ruins are listed as a Mississsippi Landmark and provide a fascinating peek into architectural history. Don’t leave town without tasting the rich Cajun dishes including gumbo, po’boys, BBQ platters and fried oysters, served at the riverside cafes and restaurants lining the Mississippi.
