Read about Orbitz writer Sheryl Nance Nash‘s trip to Natchez and all of the wonderful food, tours, history and southern hospitality she enjoyed while here. “The past is ever present in Natchez, Mississippi. There’s the history you see, like the majestic antebellum homes, and then there’s the invisible, yet palpable history that permeates the air like ghosts. At 301 years old, this town has stories and secrets. But just as fascinating as its past is its present and future.”
