Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-20 in Mississippi

Interstate 20 and Interstate 59 enter Mississippi together, but at Meridian, they part ways and I-20 continues its journey west through Jackson and Vicksburg until it reaches the Mississippi River. This area is rich in landmarks for both the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. If you are interested in haunted houses, Vicksburg is home to McRaven House which is described as one of Mississippi's most haunted houses. The Biedenham Coca-Cola Museum is also located in Vicksburg.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for your choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure you give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
