For a spectacular view of the Mississippi River and the bridges connecting with Louisiana, take a few minutes to stop along your journey. They provide excellent information as well as historical displays about Vicksburg and beyond. A hidden gem!

Just in the north side of I-20 is the welcome center. Great place for a photo stop, picnic or get a good view of the mighty Mississippi River. Clean bathrooms and an interesting history inside. Very nice place to stretch your legs and get a good photo with the kids of the welcome to Mississippi sign.

I wish we'd had longer to visit Vicksburg! The welcome center was like an invitation to learn more.

The views of the Mississippi, barges and bridges from the Welcome Center are terrific. It was one of the better Centers we stopped at on our four week road trip for tourist information, etc. There are also cannons on the nearby hill that you can climb up to. All in all a great stop.

My family was quite surprised at how beautiful the scenery was from this Welcome Center. It sits on a hill overlooking 1 beautiful bridges with great views of the Mississippi River. You can walk to a casino from the welcome center. There is also a small military park if you walk up the "walkway bridge" to it. Just terrific views... More

Stop in here! Great view of the two bridges over the Mississippi River. There's a hill across the parking lot with great views of the river as well.

Visited on a Sunday hoping to find information out about outings we were interested in. We were given more information than expected while enjoying the grounds & overlooking MS River, bridges & R/R tracks.
