Focus on Mississippi Sports Venues
While football may be king in Mississippi— the state is home to one of the nation’s
top tailgating universities, the University of Mississippi—the Magnolia State is passionate about sports of all kinds. “Mississippi is a must-visit for sports fans,” said Lauren Cook, public relations manager for Visit Mississippi.
“We offer a variety of venues for all types of sports. Tupelo’s Aquatics Center has hosted more than six large swim meets. Snowden Grove Park in DeSoto County possesses many features only previously found at professional stadiums.”
