Mississippi Weekend Getaways
With only a weekend's time, you might be better off choosing to head right for the Alabama's Gulf Coast. There is so much to see and do here. Casinos, restaurants, nighclubs, and restaurants abound in towns like Gulfport, Biloxi, and Pascagouls. Stroll the boardwalks and do a little shopping too while you attend the Annual Mississippi Coast Coliseum Crawfish Festival in April or Annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues & Heritage Festival in Pascagoula in September. Check into a lovely little B&B
or Inn like the Kate Shepard House in Mobile. Remember to take at
least one day of your weekend and visit Old Town Bay St. Louis!
Secluded Mississippi weekend travel for two just a short drive away!
If you happen to live in Mississippi, traveling to a small and secluded
place is easy. Lodging rates in small hidden towns like Grenada,
Corinth, McComb or Biloxi can be much less expensive. Many of the
smaller towns in Mississippi offer great little B&B's or cabin
making a quick weekend escape easy and inexpensive. There are always
quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.

A Mississippi Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a Mississippi major metropolitan area like Oxford,
Tupelo, Jackson or Hattiesburg, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. Off season times are
great opportunities to stay at world class resorts close to home
for much less than you might expect. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
Mississippi Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Lake Washington Scenic Route or Delta Blues Museum or attend Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival in Clarksdale in August
or Slugburger Festival in Corinth in July. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Mississippi events like Leland Crawfish Festival in May or Annual Cellular South Gum Tree Festival in Tupelo in May.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Mississippi,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Oxford, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Clarksdale resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Oxford."
