  • Exactly what we were looking for

    "When we planned our family vacation we had some very specific needs in mind. We wanted someplace where we could relax, swim, and kayak without the need to drive somewhere every day. We wanted enough bedrooms so everyone could have their own private space. And we wanted easy access to Gulfport, the beach, and New Orleans so we could fill our week-long stay with fun activities. River Lookout met our needs and then some. The house was comfortable, well supplied, and beautifully maintained. The beach area and dock were perfect for us. We launched our kayaks directly from the beach and had very enjoyable paddles both upstream and downstream. The dock area was especially nice - the rope swing provided endless entertainment for the young and the not so young. Finally, the hot tub was a great spot for relaxation and conversation even for the warm June evenings. River Lookout served as a convenient home base for excursions to New Orleans, Beauvior, the gator ranch, and some excellent seafood restaurants. Patricia and Grady were very prompt and helpful for all our requests both when arranging our visit and during our stay. We'd love to return!"

  • Wonderful!!!

    "My family stayed over a weekend and we had the most wonderful time. The owner was easy to work with and answered every question I had. He made our reservation process so easy and clean. The house is perfect and was very clean. It was just as described on the website. Although we brought our own things, there was clothes detergent, shampoo, soaps, lotions, etc available. We were very close to the beach and right in the middle of a shopping district. Everything we needed was within walking distance. I would recommend this rental to anyone!!! I am ready to go back next year already! We enjoyed it so much. My son loved it!!"

Mississippi Travel Tips

Getting to Mississippi Vacation Rentals

Mississippi is a state in the southern region of the United States. It is bordered by Alabama to the east, Tennessee to the north, Arkansas to the northwest, and Louisiana to the south and southeast. It also has just under 100 miles of coastline that run along the Gulf of Mexico. The capital city is Jackson which is centrally located within the state. The Jackson Evers International Airport currently hosts several of the major North American airlines on regular commercial flights. If you are planning a vacation on the Gulf Coast, the closest airport is in New Orleans which is located in Louisiana. It is just a short 40-mile drive from New Orleans to the border of Mississippi. The major vacation towns include Biloxi resorts and Gulfport resorts, which are between 70 and 80 miles from New Orleans. Upon your arrival, if you plan to explore the region, the best way to get around is by car. There is an extensive and well-maintained road network. As long as you have a road map or GPS, you should easily be able to navigate your way around. If you are flying in from destinations further afield, you can arrange a rental car from either of the airports for the duration of your stay.

Best Time of Year to Visit Mississippi Resort Rentals

Mississippi enjoys a long summer and relatively short winter. This makes it a popular summer vacation destination. While most people still tend to travel during the peak holiday season of July and August, the longer summer season means that you can still enjoy good weather outside of peak season. In the summer months, the temperatures average around 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmest month is traditionally July. During the winter months, the temperatures average 48 degrees Fahrenheit, with the coldest month being January. The northern interior is generally more temperate that the coastal areas. Occasional snowfalls are not uncommon in the central and northern parts; however, it is seldom significant amounts and it usually quickly melts away. Most of the rainfall occurs during the summer months in the form of short-lived but dramatic thunderstorms. The Gulf Coast is particularly prone to hurricanes that blow across the Gulf of Mexico in the late summer and early fall months. The interior of the state usually gets the dregs of the tropical storms which results in heavy rainfall.

Music Legends at Mississippi Condos

Mississippi has a rich cultural heritage. Like its neighboring states, it has a strong music tradition with the signature music style being the Blues. In Clarksdale, you will find the Delta Blues Museum where you can see memorabilia and photographs of some of the great Blues legends. There are also numerous Blues Bars across the state where you can hear your favorite tune. Tupelo, which is in northeast Mississippi, is the birthplace of Elvis Presley. Here, you can tour his childhood home which is a humble two-room house. Next door is a museum which contains many different memorabilia items that detail his life. You can also take a stroll through town and see the fairgrounds where he performed early in his career or the hardware store where he bought his first guitar. For country music fans, you can visit Meridian which is the hometown of Jimmy Rogers. The Jimmy Rogers Museum in town pays tribute to this country music legend.

Visitors to Mississippi

Mississippi is a state that attracts a diverse range of visitors. Many come to visit the museums attributed to music legends but the state has much more to offer. It has a rich historical heritage with many museums. There are also many excellent golf courses where golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round. The natural attractions are ideal for outdoor enthusiasts that enjoy hiking, mountain biking or RV-ing.
