Natchez Weekend

We spent Easter weekend in the lovely southern city of Natchez, Mississippi.  It was a wonderful weekend.  My efforts to describe the beautiful homes, blooming flowers, delicious food and living history that we witnessed would only diminish the experience.  I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves.

We arrived rather late in the day on Friday.  We took a stroll around the city to get familiar with our surroundings and take in some of the scenery.

The sunsets over the Mississippi River from Natchez are an amazing sight.

Natchez is known for its beautiful Antebellum architecture.

The spring flowers were a welcome sight after our late spring here in Southern Illinois.

Dining in Natchez is a combination of tradition, fun and whimsy!  Loved lunch at Mammy’s Cupboard and our Happy Hour at Fat Mama’s Tamales was delightful.

The winding lane leading to Longwood Plantation invokes dreams of a bygone era.

Drive to Longwood 9

Also not to be missed is the downtown shopping district.  Darby’s Fudge and Gifts and One of a Kind Gifts were two of my favorites.  For nightlife try Natchez Under the Hill.  It was all so much fun!  We will return.
