Exploring the Historical Riverfront of Vicksburg


Vicksburg, Mississippi was first settled in the early 1700s. The city is probably best known for its civil war related attractions like Vicksburg National Military Park. Today's Vicksburg needs more time to explore as there is much more to see and do. We especially enjoyed the city's riverfront and downtown areas.

Do you enjoy civil war history?

We visited Vicksburg, Mississippi during our 2019 spring RV journey. We knew that we would spend some time exploring the city's many civil war related sites. We were surprised, however, at how much more there was to see in Vicksburg.

We were very impressed with the city's downtown and historical riverfront areas. We found a number of interesting museums like the Lower Mississippi River Museum (where this photo was taken). One of our favorite things to see were the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals. There are over 30 murals, each depicting significant events in the city including the pioneering days, the city's development, the civil war and even modern day Vicksburg.

What are your recommendations for anyone who plans to spend time in Vicksburg?
