How many times have you heard it said,

Theres nothing to do around here?

W

e respectfully disagree. Corinth Holly Springs Theres plenty to do in these parts, though it may not be as obvious or as easy to nd as in an urban West Point Greenwood Starkville Columbus center. Not to worry; Macon Mississippi is still a magical place. The state is blessed with beautiful countryside, diverse parks and Port Gibson small towns, each a Natchez treasure chest of delights. To help you explore this place we call home, weve created this publication, Destinations. While we couldnt agree more with the proverb, Its the journey, not the destination, we think the destinations included in this guide offer the basis for memorable journeys. And there is so much to see along the way. Head south toward the river to Natchez and Port Gibson. There you will nd yourself in a world steeped in antebellum history and garlanded with Spanish moss. The ruins of Windsor outside of Port Gibson and the incomparable mansions of Natchez are not to be missed. Descend from the hills into Greenwood, one of the gateways to the Delta, that mythical land that spawned the blues. There explore the rich tapestry of a downtown that contains a luxury boutique hotel, antique shops and juke joints. Go north to Corinth with its charming town square and Civil War battleeld, or to Holly Springs, home to Strawberry Plains National Audubon Sanctuary and the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery. Four towns in the Golden Triangle area, Columbus, Starkville, West Point and Macon, are each distinct and worthy of walkabouts. All have charming, historic downtowns with ne dining. And all have grand homes, vestiges of the day when cotton was king. Were glad youve chosen this area as a destination. We think this place is very special. We hope you will use this guide to see why.

P.S. You dont have to travel thousands of miles to enjoy your RV. But it is wonderful to go to Yellowstone or places like that. We have a great selection of these units available for you, at affordable prices. The fun starts when you drive if off or pull it home. Our towable units start at around $10,000 and you can go as high as $60,000. Our motor homes start at $29,000 and go to $160,000. We offer nancing on most units with as little as 10% down, with approved credit and up to 15 years to pay. Come see us and make a great deal with any of the sales people. Jim Kellum, Melvin Easley or Glenn Hopper will be glad to assist you in your selection. And yes, we do take trades and have a great selection of pre-owned to pick from.
