Dunleith Plantation, Natchez

Mississippi is where you'll find pieces of the Old South preserved as if you had stepped back into the 1800s when cotton was king and this grand state was its throne. In fact, Natchez, which is perched 200 feet above the Mississippi River, is the oldest civilized settlement on the river, even older than New  Orleans. And during a five-week period in spring, tourists from all over the world converge on Natchez to tour the historic mansions filled with exquisite furniture. The event has even been called a "pilgrimage" by those who make the journey.

Mississippi is also a growing business destination. The city of Jackson has a convention center with a seating capacity for 10,000 and dining capacities for up to 2,800 at a single event. A more sandy and southern alternative is The Mississippi Coast Coliseum & Convention Center located in Biloxi, right across the street from the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. It's also just steps away from 17,000 hotel rooms and a number of casinos, for those who want to try their luck at the tables and slot machines!
