Something for everyone family reunion in mid July

We are staying at River Ranch for seven nights and I hope to offer some fun day trips for the five teenagers, a little history for the grandparents, and good eating for the rest of us. We can't wait to fall in love with Mississippi!

We were just there earlier in the month. Natchez is not that far for a day trip for loads of history. Gulfport is only about an hour away and the beach is certainly fun for teenagers. Lots of good food there from local restaurants and chains. Also take a walking tour of the downtown area. The people were all very friendly and we enjoyed our visit.

Axle who posts on the MS forum will give you lots of great info.

McComb is not a bad drive. The Dinner Bell is an oustanding restaurant for lunch. They serve good country food on revolving tables. It's one of the few left. Vicksburg has a lot of history with the National Military Park. Walnut Hills is a revolving table restaurant in VB with good country food. Go W on # 98 to Leatha's in HB for good BBQ. The Shed has good BBQ also. I will post a few more later. Good luck.

So far so good. We ate at the crescent city grill and it was delightful. We have spent our time enjoying RIver Ranch. We have watched baby turkeys following mama and a lot of deer. The bouie river is nice but the current is fast. We will visit Gulfport beaches soon and hope the teens like them.

Have a great trip and enjoy Mississippi. Take the kids to Back Bay for good seafood on their outdoor porch. Pick up some good fresh seafood to take back to RR for dinner. Good luck.
