Near the museum there is a great outdoor walking trail for a glimpse of the Mississipi landscape. The nearby Mississippi Museum of Art contains great works from the state and beyond. For entertainment Biloxi is Mississippi's answer to Vegas, with eight huge casino resorts. Try your luck at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino or the famous Beau Rivage. Mississippi holidays would never be complete without the blues and for authentic blues clubs in Jackson try 9:30 Blues Cafe, a traditional bar with nightly performances, or F Jones Corner, a downtown club where a melting pot of diverse locals jam until sunrise.
