"VICKSBURG & NATCHEZ, MS
NEW ORLEANS –SPRING COMBO TOUR”
March 3 – March 7, 2018 (Saturday thru Wednesday)
This is a brand new tour we’ve had a lot of request for
but we’ve never offered before.
Established first as a French fort site overlooking the Mississippi River in 1716, then laid out as a new town by
the Spanish in the 1790s, Natchez became part of the United States with the establishment of the Mississippi
Territory in 1798. A place resplendent with natural beauty, Natchez is perched over 200 feet above the
Mississippi River, with 30-mile views along the river both north and south. Today, it’s a thriving location for
Mississippi tourism. Because Natchez did not hold a strategic position during the Civil War, it was spared
much of the damage other cities suffered and remains home to more than 600 examples of antebellum
architecture — more than any other city in the South. These historic homes and buildings, along with churches
and other heritage sites, make Natchez a treasure trove for history buffs. But Natchez is more than history. It’s
what you love about the South — easy elegance and casual charm, true hospitality, historic homes, lush
gardens and moss-covered oaks and delicious down-home fare.
Sitting high atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers, the city of Vicksburg was the setting of
a bloody 47 day siege during the Civil War. The site of this epic battle is now Vicksburg National Military Park,
preserving original fortifications and the U.S.S. Cairo, an ironclad gunboat that once prowled the waters of the
Mississippi River. Vicksburg is also the place where Coca-Cola was first bottled, a fact that is happily
immortalized at the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum.
