Here Are 8 Ideas for Your Romantic Getaways in Mississippi
Take a Stroll at the Garden of Mynelle Hayward

What once began as a flower shop in the 1920s has grown into the color-rich garden that visitors can marvel at today. You and your beloved can stroll through this seven-acre paradise and spend the afternoon relaxing in the peaceful environment. The warmth of the Deep South weather allows for the green grass and colorful flora to adorn the gardens year-round. Make sure you plan your trip sometime between February and November when the gardens are open for tours!

Shop Around the Fondren District

This colorful neighborhood contains some of the quaintest shops, bakeries, and cafes, which makes it ideal for a romantic destination. Picture yourself walking hand-in-hand with your better half, eating a French pastry from La Brioche, stopping at Cups for a cappuccino, and buying cute gifts for your relatives back home!
Attend the Natchez Balloon Festival
There’s something incredibly romantic and picturesque about the sight of hundreds of hot air balloons floating in the sky. The Natchez Balloon Festival is a one-of-a-kind and an absolute must-see if you’re visiting the area in October. It’s held every year at the Rosalie Bicentennial Gardens in downtown Natchez, which is a charming town less than two hours away from Jackson.

Jones Corner is one of the top bars in town and is only a short taxi drive away from Fairview Inn! You’ll be delighted by the stunning, historical buildings decorating our city streets. This lively jazz club offers incredible music, inviting atmosphere, and one of the most romantic weekend getaways in Mississippi. While you are listening to the rhythms and blues, order one of their signature “Eats” and make your meal even better with one of their “Sides & Fried” dishes.
Road Trip Along the Natchez Trace Parkway
Put on your driving gloves and best silk scarves, because you’re about to go on an epic road trip! The Natchez Trace Parkway is a scenic route that takes you along some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Mississippi. No wonder it’s been used for more than 10,000 years! Originally, it was a prevalent course for Native Americans way back in the day. Along this parkway, you’ll also get to see great historical sites, such as the Tupelo National Battlefield and the Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield. Civil War buffs will love it!
Travel Back in Time at Longwood
Experience life as it was in the 19th century at the magnificent Longwood House in Natchez, MS. This imposing and octagonal mansion boasts some of the finest architecture in the area. It was designed as an Oriental palace by Mississippi natives for Haller and Julia Nutt. Construction began a few years before the Civil War and was often referred to as “Nutt’s Folly.” You’ll understand why when you come face-to-face with the historical landmark!
