Rediscovering Historic Vicksburg
in the Winter
While Vicksburg, Mississippi is certainly in “The South”, our winter weather is unpredictable. We may have temperatures in the 70’s one day and in the 20’s the next! We even get some snow! I am honored to share pics from Vicksburg National Military Park that my friend, Licensed Battlefield Guide, B.B. Ingle, recently sent to me! (Thank you B.B.!)

The morning of December 8th, 2017, I awoke to find several text messages from my friend, BB Ingle. An occasional text about Vicksburg Civil War Roundtable is not unusual, but over a half-a-dozen at around 7 am—well that was! If you are familiar with “The South” at all, however, you will understand what B.B. was so excited about!
What is there to do in Vicksburg in the winter?
Well, to be honest, if it snows, not a lot, lol! We truly pretty much shut down the whole state of Mississippi! Thankfully, that does not happen very often! So, check out the weather forecast, just in case, then go ahead and plan a trip to Vicksburg!
Obviously, Vicksburg National Military is open year around, baring the federal government shutting down. Vicksburg also has many tour homes which are open or available upon appointment. There are also museums, historic churches, art galleries, a book store, guided tours, walking tours, unique dining experiences, riverfront murals, an art park, historic cemeteries, unique stores and shops, live music, trivia, wine, beer, and cocktail tastings, and more! My list is far from exhaustive. Below are links to websites with complete lists and details.

Seriously folks, winter really is a GREAT TIME
