Chances are you probably haven’t gotten out much this past year thanks to the pandemic. Jackson, MS can cure that wanderlust as the city and surrounding areas have something to cater to all interests as the hosts for the 70th National Square Dance ConventionĀ®.

The fun starts with the Pre-convention tour June 20-23, which is dedicated to the King, Elvis Presley. The tour will visit his birthplace in Tupelo, MS before heading to Memphis, TN for two days near his well-known home in Graceland. You will also get a chance to visit Beale Street, one of the best-known streets in the United States.

During the convention, there are plenty of other tours, if you can tear yourself away from the dance floor. Continue the music theme with the Delta Blues Tour, which stops at the Grammy Museum, the Delta Blues Museum, and the Crossroads, where a blues legend sold his soul to the devil, or the Sing the Blues Tour, which visits the BB King Museum and Club Ebony. Pay tribute to the military with the Armed Forces Tour, which visits the Armed Forces Museum near Hattiesburg.

Jackson has plenty of history as well. Visit Merrehope, one of the few remaining Antebellum homes in Meridian, MS, on the Meridian Tour, or Stanton Hall, one of the most opulent houses in the south, on the Natchez Tour. If you want military history, travel to Vicksburg, MS a major turning point in the American Civil War at Vicksburg.

Come for the dancing, stay for the culture! There’s plenty to do in the City with Soul! For more information, visit 70nsdc.com and click on “tours.”
