Mississippi is both a Southern state and a Gulf Coast state. Mississippi is bordered on the west by Louisiana and Arkansas, on the north by Tennessee, and on the east by Alabama. Mississippi has 48 thousand square miles and has a population of almost 3 million people. Geographically Mississippi is almost completely covered by forested lowlands with the highest point in the state rising to only about 800 feet. The Gulf Coast of Mississippi consists of bayous and bays. The Gulf Coast bays of Biloxi, Pascagoula and Bay St Louis support a thriving tourist economy in places such as Biloxi and Gulfport.

Besides the great beaches on the Gulf Coast Mississippi also attracts visitors for business, gambling and related events, and in part because it has a long history. In its early Euro-American history Mississippi has been claimed by the Spanish, the French and the British.

In its Confederacy period, Mississippi was the scene of several significant battles between the Union and the South. One of the most significant battles of the Civil War occurred at Vicksburg. The siege of Vicksburg is considered by many historians one of the battles that signaled the turning point of the Civil War. The legacy of this series of battles is memorialized at the Vicksburg National Military Park and draws thousands of visitors each year.

Another attraction that draws many visitors to Mississippi is the birthplace of Elvis Presley. Even several decades after his passing, Elvis Presley's birthplace still attracts thousands of visitors to Tupelo Mississippi.

Gambling has become an important economic resource for the State of Mississippi. Las Vegas style casinos are concentrated in three areas of Mississippi. Along the Gulf Coast there are dozens of casinos in Gulfport, Biloxi and other cities. There are several casinos in the Vicksburg area. The other major concentration of casinos in Mississippi is in the Robinsonville-Tunica area just south of Memphis Tennessee.
