Ridgeland . . . Inside + Out

Ridgeland is a great destination hub for student group tour discovery of Central Mississippi’s natural, cultural and historical offerings.   Within miles and minutes, your students can explore nature’s splendor and history along the Natchez Trace Parkway and on a guided nature kayak tour of the Barnett Reservoir.  Learn of Mississippi’s history at the Mississippi Musuem of History and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum (Opening December 2017) and at the Vicksburg National Military Park/USS Cairo Museum in a short drive to the capital city and to Vicksburg.  Students can discover how life was in a Mississippi small town in 1920 and how agriculture and aviation shaped Mississippi’s economy at the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum.  If nature and science are the interests, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science and the Davis Planetarium and all their student offerings should be an addition to your plans for Ridgeland.  Did we mention art and culture? The Mississippi Museum of Art and the renowned Mississippi Craft Center which features treasures from over 400 artisans, student classes and demonstrations (by appointment) are a great addition to a Mississippi program.

Ridgeland is also Mississippi’s premiere shopping destination offering national brand and local specialty stores at the Renaissance at Colony Park, The Township and Northpark Mall.
