There's something about the South that invites you to sit back on a porch with a tall glass of sweet tea and watch the world go by. But one look at our calendar of events and you'll see that in Natchez, kicking back is not for lack of things to do!
For starters, there's our most famous Natchez attractions: postcard-perfect inns, noble churches and stately mansions built before the Civil War. For anyone who didn't grow up surrounded by antebellum homes, the allure of historic buildings all throughout Natchez is hard to resist. And why would you? With a walkable downtown and so many sites just minutes apart, Natchez tours are natural to-dos on any visitor's list.
Of course, the same weather that beckons you to kick back on the veranda also makes Natchez a great place to enjoy the outdoors. Biking and walking trails and scenic byways crisscross the area, many along the historic Natchez Trace. The Mississippi flyway makes Natchez a hotspot for birding during migrations, and camping, boating, hunting and fishing are a way of life here — you'll find all the gear you need if you're traveling light or lose your favorite lure.
We've even been known to knock some balls around a few golf courses from time to time in Natchez (you don't know the meaning of "water hazard" 'til you've played past Lake Dammit). But if your gaming interests tend towards a different kind of club - the ones alongside hearts, diamonds and spades - you'll love courting lady luck at the Isle of Capri Casino, where the Mighty Mississippi just keeps rolling by, win or lose.
If you do win, you'll be glad to know we do our share of shopping in Natchez, too! Antique stores, specialty shops and art galleries offer fine ways to put you newly won wealth to use, at least by day. After dark, blues, jazz and other live music rules Natchez nightlife, with bands all across town and Under the Hill, plus karaoke and dancing into the night.
You'll never run out of things to do in Natchez. This is Southern travel at its best.
