Natchez was pretty cool to visit, I stayed in an antebellum home there for a weekend and it was super nice, good eating.
Cruisin the Coast is always fun if you love antique cars, it's a big thing in my family cause we all own at least 1 antique vehicle

Hattiesburg was home to The Graves Brothers, Blind Roosevelt Graves and Uaroy Graves who, along with piano player Cooney Vaughn recorded, two songs in 1936 that "featured fully formed rock and roll guitar riffs and a stomping rock and roll beat."

Believed to be the first ever bona fide rock and roll band.
