Vicksburg, Mississippi Travel

Travel in Mississippi is a breeze, and it's easy to get to Vicksburg because the city is located on a major east-west artery, U.S. Interstate 20, and is just a half hour from U.S. Interstate 55, the north-south corridor of Middle America. Vicksburg is also located on legendary U.S. Highway 61, the Great River Road, which leads to historic Port Gibson, Natchez and St. Francisville to the south and to the famed Mississippi Delta to the north (quite possibly the most interesting way to travel in Mississippi). Flights to Mississippi are convenient, with the Jackson International Airport just 50 minutes away. For those with private planes, the Vicksburg Municipal Airport and the Vicksburg-Tallulah Regional Airport are less than 10 minutes from downtown. Memphis and New Orleans are approximately 200 miles to the north and south, respectively, and Vicksburg is roughly midway between Dallas and Atlanta. Pick up maps and information on the city's numerous attractions at the Vicksburg Visitors Center, Exit 4B off I-20. The Mississippi Welcome Center is located at Exit1A off I-20.
