Fannin Lanes

Reviewed By kaldonia - Jackson, MS

We have a big family and all the kids( all over 19) love to bowl. When everyone's in town, we never miss a chance to head to Fannin Lanes. We usually rent a lane and can get two games in an hour. For us, it's the best way to go. Of course, use can pay buy the game. Electronic scoring lets you focus on your game and not figuring out ten plus your next ball. Lots of fun!

Reviewed By wendy S - Madison, Mississippi

Overall, this museum has many engaging, fun exhibits. I found the admission steep, $10 per person. This is one instance where I think the supervising adults should get a price break. For that price of admission, I would expect things to be in apple pie...MoreThank you for your review! We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our Operations staff! -Team MCM

Trustmark Park

Reviewed By Cucchiaj

Thoroughly enjoyed the stadium. It's a very nice facility. The Braves AA affiliate is doing a great job. They keep the crowd involved and the players actually seem to enjoy interacting with the crowd during pre-game activities. The ball field is well kept by the ground crew and the multimedia folks are top-notch. The food is "ballpark-priced" but very good. They even have jumpers for the kids before and during the game.
The youth baseball camp is awesome! They really teach the kids a lot and genuinely seem to have an interest in seeing the kids succeed. I would think most players at the minor league level would not enjoy having to babysit a bunch of little leaguers, but these guys truly looked like they enjoyed it and wanted to be there. For $150, these kids get a sack full of merchandise, lunch everyday, autographs, and invaluable baseball experience at a professional level. Worth every penny. You have to sign-up early because slots fill up. Jan Williams was very enthusiastic, and a tremendous help in getting my boy signed up.
We are definitely coming back every year!

Flowood Nature Park

A nature park with lots of gardens, a small pond with a water fountain, many geese, squirrels, and fox (on occasion). The park is equipped with water tanks and cups for walkers and runners. There are pavilions, an amphitheater and many benches. There is a one mile walking trail back in to the wooded area and a walk-way/pier looking out over the pond. Bathrooms are available.

Reviewed By KathyJx - Flowood, MS

The Flowood Nature Park is a great place to spend the afternoon. It has fully accessible, paved paths throughout the woods, around a pond with large fountain. It has picnic tables, clean public restrooms, and the park is full of wildlife. My kids love to take bread down to the pier and feed the turtles. We see tons of fish, geese, ducks, and there have been baby fox during spring time. There are pavilions, water stations throughout the park, and the park is very well shaded.

Old Capitol Museum

The Old Capitol building served the state from 1832-1903 and was later converted into a State Historical Museum. Visitors can tour the grand dam of Mississippi politics, plus view dioramas and exhibits that trace the city's history. The museum also includes a large collection of Jefferson Davis memorabilia.

Reviewed By JHChicago2014 - Chicago, Illinois

The old capital museum is a good place to stop for about an hour or two. There are lots of exhibits on Mississippi - from a territory to a state - that cover the states constitution, legislative and judicial offices, and even some traveling exhibits. Anyone in the area should stop and visit. The museum itself is free and there are restrooms to use.
