Mississippi Things to Do: 67 reviews and 125 photos


Port Gibson lies in the Kudzu (vine) covered hills of Claiborne County, just off the Natchez Trace. Union General U.S. Grant declared Port Gibson as "The town too beautiful to burn." during his drive to lay siege to Vicksburg. The city is a monument in itself to a prosperous time during the reign of King Cotton. There are many grand homes down tree lined streets and it is Mississippi's third oldest city.
