Vicksburg is HEATING UP!
No, I am not talking about Global Warming, but I am talking about the fact that summer is nearly upon us. In The South, that means HOT TEMPS & HIGH HUMIDITY. Walking tours, especially in Vicksburg where one must go up and down BIG HILLS, can be challenging to say the least. I do not know about you, but nothing about that appeals to me or screams “FUN VACATION HERE!” Come to Vicksburg anyway, however, because you can have a HOT TIME and BEAT THE HEAT in Vicksburg at the same time!
