I walked into Heirloom Furnishings LLC and immediately received a friendly welcome from a lady I later learned was the owner of the store. They have a nice collection of consignment items of a wide variety. The prices are quite reasonable and they have a nice selection.
We really enjoyed the Queen Jelena Madijevka Park. We it is fairly large, with several trails and a stone staircases to access a raised center portion. The park is filled with flowering trees and small areas to explore. The views of the five-wells park adjacent to it and of the city wall and gate are really worth a visit to the park.

The Visit Vicksburg tourist information center on Clay Street is great. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. There is also a great passport program which is free. They gave us a small book with a list of participating museums. We visited and had them stamp the book. We returned the books to Visit Vicksburg, with five stamps in each and got two free Tee shirts.
While the Vicksburg National Military Park rates five plus, the Park Welcome Center gets a four which is generous. They have interesting displays but the personnel seem to lack interest in welcoming anyone. This is a shame because once we got past them the park was wonderful and luckily can be self guided.
The exhibition of the USS Cairo Gunboat and Museum is very spectacular. The boat is remarkably well preserved considering the time it spent under water. Being able to see and actually walk onto this piece of history is really impressive. The museum is also loaded with personal effects of the men who served on the ship. This is an exhibition I think almost anyone would appreciate.
