What's your hidden gem or destination highlight?

Mississippi has many hidden Gems, which is what makes it so special. If I had to pick one place that for me was a true hidden gem, it would be Clarksdale. Birthplace of the Delta Blues and many blues music legends including Muddy Waters, Sam Cooke and Kingfish. Clarksdale is one of those places that you never forget. The people truly make this edgy and gritty town, and the soulful sounds of the blues can be heard 365-days of the year and from every corner.. there really is no place like it.

What your unique hotel or an accommodation top tip?

With so many different accommodation types you are spoilt for choice, but I love the boutique hotels in Oxford, Mississippi. The Oliver hotel is a standout property, located right in the heart of the town square which is lined with local boutiques, fabulous book shops and some of the finest restaurants and bars in Mississippi. The rooms are elegant yet modern, all tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork and glamorous bathrooms.

What's a fun activity to do?

The Quapaw Canoe Company offers wilderness adventures and expeditions on the Lower Mississippi River, its back waters, bayous, oxbows and the floodplain in between the levees. Vicksburg is one of the places you can embark from in Mississippi.

What's your top travel tip?

Take lot’s of pictures! Mississippi’s beauty definitely shines bright through the lens of a camera so make sure you stop and take a moment to capture your magical Mississippi memories.

What's your top packing tip?

Comfortable clothes and shoes are a must, especially with so much to explore you need to be comfy! Also, SPF… it sure does get hot!

Did you know fact about Mississippi?

Did you know that Mississippi is the birthplace of Elvis Presley? The king of Rock and Roll was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and you can tour the birthplace of Elvis when visiting this great town. The Elvis themed cocktail trail is one of my personal favourites!
