“To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.”


You know, William Faulkner never actually said those words; however, they’re undeniably true.

There’s just something about the one-way streets of Natchez, the cedar trees at Rowan Oak, the charm of Gibbs Country Store in Learned, the sands of Biloxi, and the vast fields of cotton in the Delta. There’s no better feeling than to walk into a restaurant and feel right at home as they serve you a big glass of ice cold sweet tea. It’s hot in the summer and, let’s face it, hot in the winter – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Sure, there are pretty trees in California, whiter beaches in Florida, and miles and miles of farmland in Nebraska, but they don’t have anything on Mississippi.
