The rain let up eventually and we headed the 45 or so miles to Vicksburg, crossing the Mississippi to the Visitors Center.
We picked up some brochures and information and headed into the downtown area to explore. The city is so full of history, from Native Americans, French pioneers, Spanish forts, Civil War battles and Civil Rights struggles, we could spend a week here, but we have only a day. We chose to visit the impressive Warren County Courthouse.
After our sightseeing we headed to the Tomato Place for lunch, highly recommended by the lady at the Visitors Center! Check out their website; www.thetomatoplace.com and make sure you watch their YouTube video!
