ATTRACTIONS

Natchez Mississippi, the oldest settlement on the Mississippi River, is full of places to see and things to do. In addition to touring our many wonderful antebellum homes, which are opened year round, there is also the Natchez Indian Village, Historic Jefferson Military College, Natchez National Park and delightful horse drawn carriage rides.

There is a wonderful walking path overlooking the magnificent Mississippi River. There are two wonderful 18-hole golf course, great public tennis courts and wonderful hunting and fishing all around the area.

For your dining pleasure we have everything from five-course candlelight dinners to the best hamburgers and catfish you have ever eaten.

Each year, Natchez hosts the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race. Hot Air Balloons fly throughout the weekend, the stage performers entertain with live music, and you can enjoy some of the best food vendors from around town right there at the festival. It takes place the third weekend in October, on the grounds of Rosalie at the end of Broadway street.

Another annual event is the Natchez Festival of Music, hosted in many different venues around town. Genres of music change each year, from Jazz to Blues to Broadway and more. Artists come from around the world to perform during the month of May. The Festival of Music also presents the Christmas Cabaret each year, as well as wonderful performances during Valentine's Day.
