Curled into the bank of the Mississippi River right across from the Louisiana state line, it’s hard to know where to begin talking about Vicksburg, MS. The only city in Warren County has many claims to fame -- Coca-Cola was first brewed here, the town is well-known for its Mississippi Delta Blues music, and it was subject to a notorious forty-seven-day siege during the Civil War. Vicksburg still bears some scars from the latter -- the Cedar Mansion Inn and Restaurant has a cannonball stuck in one of its front walls. You and your pooch can take a look at it while you sample some of their old-style southern cooking on the porch!
These days, though, Vicksburg is becoming noted for its small but thriving arts scene. The past meets the present in the city’s historic downtown, where painstakingly preserved architecture sits next to contemporary and folk art galleries.
Vicksburg prides itself on its southern hospitality, and that warm welcome definitely extends to your furry friend. The city has its own dog park, as well as some pawesome options for leashed walks. No matter how long or short your stay here, you and your pooch are sure to find something of interest in Vicksburg!
