Trip Report Mini Trip Report: Natchez, Mississippi (May 27-29, 2006)

Jump to last reply

I planned a secret little trip for my husband's birthday. We have never been to Natchez and have heard good things, so that is what I chose for the adventure!

We live in the New Orleans area, so Natchez is only about a 2-2.5 hr drive.

We stayed at the Monmouth Plantation, which was lovely and amazing. Highly recommended! (www.monmouthplantation.com; now able to book online).

We took tours of Monmouth (included in the room rate), Dunleith, and Rosalie. They were very well done and educational. All of the tour guides were so nice.

As far as dining, we ate at Monmouth (fabulous), Carriage House, Magnolia's and Planet Thailand. We were very undewelmed by Carriage House, which is at Stanton Hall and receives accolades for its fried chicken. The service was awful, the chicken was okay, and whole experience was marginal.

We loved the food at Monmouth as well as Planet Thailand. Magnolia's is right on the Mississippi and has the best view. I really liked the atmosphere and the food.

Other than that, we explored around Natchez and lost some $$ at the casino, the Isle of Capri.

Natchez is a very relaxing place and I understand why so many people from NOLA visit for a weekend.
