Mississippi is often overlooked by travel nurses, but those that come find that it has lots to offer. Mississippi was the birthplace of the most quintessentially American music: country, jazz, blues, gospel and rock and roll. Mississippi has beautiful soft white sand beaches along an emerald coast, exciting casinos, beautiful antebellum homes covered in spanish moss, mysterious swamps and riverboat cruises on her namesake river.

In the mid-1800's Natchez, MS was one of the wealthiest cities in America. More than 1/2 of America's millionaires lived in or near Natchez before the Civil War. Natchez is the best place to experience the flavor of the old south that was depicted in "Gone with the Wind" and many of the mansions are now owned by the historical society and can be toured.

One of the most beautiful historic drives in America is preserved in the Natchez Trace Parkway. Under the shady trees you will find 444-miles of history from the days before Europeans settled here to civil war sites, natural beauty in swamps and waterfalls and ghost towns like Rocky Springs. The park service has kept modern life away from 'The Trace' but great eateries and conveniences are frequently only a few miles on either side of you. Don't miss the chance to drive (or bike) this great American road.

What nurse doesn't love a day on the beach? The gulf coast of Mississippi has some of the best beaches in the world. The sand is pure white and the consistency of sugar. The clear emerald water gives this part of the gulf the name "The Emerald Coast." The waves are gentle and the water is warm. For a perfect beach experience, check out Moss Point Beach in Pascagoula, MS.
