Conducting Local Tours in Natchez or Vicksburg for Tourists From Around the World

Various Tours & Outdoor Adventures in Mississippi

Spring blooms eternal and brings visitors to the historic cities of Southwest Mississippi. But especially Vicksburg and Natchez, which are both beautiful towns steeped in history and graced by stately homes and lush gardens. “Roads to Pilgrimage” brings the adventure home by allowing you to curate your own personal discovery of the area during this glorious Southern Spring season.

Scenic Highway 61 is the “Route 66” of the area and the key to your adventure. An excursion originating from either Vicksburg or Natchez is a picturesque drive of little over an hour and less than seventy-five miles. Either way, it’s sure to be a relaxing experience of discovery.

With the beginning of the new season, you will find the roadside peppered with flowering trees and plants from the Dogwood and Wisteria to the landscape-draped Kudzu! As the days grow longer, Magnolias and Mimosas finish the season in splendor. Midway during your excursion, you will find that the quaint little town of Port Gibson and the historic Lorman General Store make interesting detours for exploring.

Spring brings an aura of new energy and both cities boast a notable array of shops, galleries, museums, restaurants, breweries, distilleries, music, and nightlife! More than enough activity to fill your day. You may even decide to extend your travel by taking advantage of the numerous Bed and Breakfast and local hotels, which are plentiful in both cities.

Explore While Driving is the starting place for your adventure. We can design a personal experience just for you! Visit www.explorewhiledriving.com or call (601) 890-2388.
