Located in the Jackson, Mississippi metropolitan area, Flowood, MS offers a comfortable place to stay away from city life. With Choice hotels, there are excellent options for when you’re in the area.
There is a lot to see and do here, including:
If you want to fortify yourself before venturing out into the area, then a required stop is for petit fours at the Fat Cake Guy’s bakery. People come from miles around for this special treat.
You can walk off those petit fours calories at the Winner’s Circle Park, comprising more than five acres of beautifully designed and landscaped park with five lighted tennis courts, a children’s playground, an amphitheater and walking trails.
The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame gives you a sense of the many local people who have made it big in the world of sports. A life-sized video game and film enliven the exhibits. The locals love it for birthday parties, so make sure that it isn’t booked when you want to visit.
Near the Sports Hall of Fame, the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Museum enchants children and adults alike, offering exhibits that are both indoors and outdoors and creating an old farming community experience with ginning cotton, syrup-making and more.
And if your kids are still eager for activities, the Mississippi Children’s Museum is close by the interstate and is a favorite stop for travelers with children, offering three floors of interactive exhibits and activities that include an art studio, a library, a Velcro wall, temporary exhibits and a dancing room with a giant jukebox.
Call ahead to book a private tour of the Medgar Evers Home where you will have a powerful sense of history. If you are unfamiliar with the story of the civil rights movement and Mr. Evers in particular, take a few minutes to read about it before visiting so that you will have a context for what you will be seeing.
The South is rich in history and there is a great deal to explore, and the Flowood, MS hotels below all provide the perfect place to stay. Make one of them your home base as you explore the South--for a vacation of a lifetime.
