    My wife and I recently visited Longwood with friends who were visiting from out of town. We have toured this home many time over the years but it still draws us in whenever we visit Natchez. The tour guide was excellent and very informative. Every time we visit it seems we learn something new. If you have never visited Longwood, you should make the time to do so. The history is quite rich and the house is an architectural marvel.

    Our guide, Chuck, gave us the best tour we had in Natchez, after seeing many houses. He truly made the house alive with the history & architecture. This house is a must see !

    Lovely cathedral with ornate German stain glass windows and beautiful arches. Worth even a quick stop.

    We had an older gentleman tour guide who was funny and informative. He also told us about nearby St. Mary's church. The house is beautiful with much of the original furniture. The grandfather clock was a favorite item for me. The ticket price was 20.00 and the tour was about an hour. The gift shop staff was polite and parking easy. There is a park across the street with great views of the Mississippi River

    I previously visited this home back in the 80’s when it was privately owned, and since it is now part of Ms State Parks not much has changed. If you need a weekend / day getaway I would strongly suggest a visit. With the intact outbuildings, along with most of the original home furnishings, this is one of the most historically complete homes I’ve seen.

    This is a lovely, well-maintained park with level paths, a bandstand(being used for a wedding reception the day we were there) and some interesting boards giving information about the history of Natchez. But the one thing that you really appreciate when you are here are the spectacular views of the open skies and the Mississippi River, especially when the sun is going down.

    If visiting Natchez, you must drive through this enormous, fascinating cemetery. Not an activity we usually seek out, but it was so interesting. Highly recommend!

    Our guide was the owner of this magnificent antebellum mansion. The house is full of beautiful original furniture, works of art, crystal, china, and so much more. This home is authentic and so is the owner/guide. Beautiful and interesting--a must see in Natchez.

    This house was a stop on our Open Air Tour of Natchez. Sally shared the story of William Johnson, the barber of Natchez, a man of color and a man of business. His success story was impressive and inspiring.

    Yes, we got the NPS credit for the few-mile drive, but I'm not sure it's worth the visit otherwise. It's like a long, green, monotonous tunnel here at the beginning of the trail. Very few cars on the road, likely because there's no reason to drive it twice. We saw some motorcycles (which could be a fun trip) as well as bicycles (which made complete sense, as it seems like a great and relatively remote training ground). So beyond the thought that you too have traveled the trail taken by millions of Americans over the history of the country, it's a relatively dull place to be.

    This museum does a great job of highlighting the history of the African American experience in Natchez, going back to the period before Mississippi was a part of the United States. There are a number of displays along with artifacts that range from household items to popular culture. For visitors to Natchez, it is so important to see the contributions and connections that were made to the Civil Rights Movement as well in this part of the country. I also appreciated having a curator who took the time to discuss the museum and its mission with all those who entered the museum.

    The Natchez Trace Parkway is actually a difficult place to plan and execute a trip on. You can read all you want about the Natchez Trace Parkway, but it’s hard to understand what is worth seeing and what is not. So heading north, this is the first stop after the Visitor Center in Natchez. Don’t plan on spending a lot of time at this one. The storyboards are very informative and you can walk and see the mounds, although there’s not much different than looking at them from down below where the storyboards are. We spent some time here, but you can either drive this fabulous National Park as a pleasant drive in the woods or as a historic area with an incredible story. We researched a lot of it and didn’t stop everywhere. We made a list and marked them green, yellow or red. Green was a must see, yellow if we have time and red to simply pass or read the storyboards. The Emerald Mounds and the Pharr Mounds further north were very interesting when you recall they were hand made without modern tools. The National Park Service has done archeological digs and authenticated them.

    There are not a lot of places in the United States you can visit where you know an Indian nation had a strong presence. You can here. The Grand Village of the Natchez was where the nation lived 3-6 centuries ago and there are French written accounts of what that habitation looked like. Today a visit here is underwhelming, there are a few grass mounds that stand as evident of the Natchez presence. I was glad to visit because of the historical significance, but wishes there was more to see. There is a small museum on site, so a visit will take you about an hour here.

    We really enjoyed our visit here. So welcoming and give you an opportunity to try the beers while you work out what works best for you. The sun was shining in the afternoon so lovely to sit outside but equally a great relaxed environment inside into the evening when the sun had set. Food was also amazing! Super tasty pizzas and calzone and the service of both food and drink was great. Clearly a popular place in Natchez and rightly so. Even picked up a souvenir to take back to the UK
