Mississippi State Travel Guide


Admitted as the 20th US State on December 10, 1817, Mississippi derived its name from the Mississippi River and carries the nickname, the Magnolia State. Its Mississippi Delta region is considered the birthplace of blues music and it is one of our most heavily forested states.

Mississippi is home to 11 National Park Units as well as 21 State Parks, 2 State Wildlife Areas, 8 State Wildlife Management Areas, 6 National Forests, and 9 National Wildlife Refuges. There are approximately 1,414 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 40 National Historic Landmarks, and 5 National Natural Landmarks.

“Go, Mississippi, keep rolling along, Go, Mississippi, you cannot go wrong, Go, Mississippi, we’re singing your song, M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I.” by William Houston Davis.
