Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Mississippi

With alluring beauty, diverse wildlife and terrain, and numerous lakes and rivers, Mississippi offers plenty of outdoor opportunities for all. Here's some recommendations for your weekend getaway in Mississippi.

  • 1. Canoeing and Kayaking

    The Mississippi Gulf Coast is home to a wide variety of birds. If birding is your thing, there's few better places to visit. If you’re here in the spring or fall, you'll spot species such as the Mississippi kite, surf scoter, and brown pelicans migrating through the vibrant coastal environment.

Or head to the Longleaf Trace and power down its well-maintained surfaces. Pedestrians and inline skaters also ply this route between Hattiesburg and Prentiss.

  • 4. Fishing

    Whether you're into freshwater or saltwater fishing, Mississippi has something for the avid angler. Go on a guided tour for the best fishing spots around local wrecks and reefs. Spend a day going for some red snapper, cobia, or amberjack. For flounder, speckled trout, and redfish, stick to fishing along the marshes.
