Any small getaway is better when you find ways to energize yourself. In Corinth, Mississippi, you might be surprised at all the ways there are to energize…and enjoy!
First, go for a walk! Wandering the historic streets might be enough recharge for you, but for those who need a little more guidance, the 60 Sights in 60 Minutes walking tour will take you through the streets and through our history! Stop in at Trailhead Yard along the way, take a rest, and see who’s the best cornhole player of your gang!
Find out what a “slugburger” is (it’s probably not what you think)! Trying new food and sampling the local cuisine can be fun and unexpected. Small towns often have great local restaurants that serve delicious, home-cooked meals, and Corinth is no different! The oldest drugstore in Mississippi will take care of your milkshake urges, a side-street cake shop will guarantee goodies for later -after steaks and barbecue, that is. From historic tamales to eyebrow-raising burgers, whether authentic Thai or biscuits and gravy is your goal, you won’t go hungry in Corinth.
Make a friend! Strike up a conversation with locals, whether it’s upstairs at the coffee shop, at the counter at Abe’s, or working on your selfie game at one of the murals. Corinthians can give you insider tips on what to see and do, and hearing their stories can be an inspiring experience. Ask Mr. Kenneth how many marathons he’s run, or catch Romeo the bird (and his human) as they bike around downtown!
Check the calendar before you come, and you might catch us a tour best! The CocaCola 10K in May is one of the largest foot races in the state, the award-winning Green Market pops up several times a year, the Slugburger Festival in July will get anyone to brave the heat, and when the holidays come around, shopping in the glittering downtown is suddenly much less of a chore. In between seasons you can visit the Big Chicken, tour the Corinth Contraband Camp, check out the Lake Hill Motorcycle Museum, stop by the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center, or take in any number of individual historic sites. Take in a show at the oldest community theatre in the state or find the breathtaking beauty of the historic Coliseum. Anytime of year, Corinth is full of ways to recharge.
Explore! If you feel like a vacation from your vacation, Corinth is located just miles from anything from battlefields to beauty! Shiloh National Park, Tishomingo State Park, Pickwick Lake, and the Tennessee River. A day trip is a great way to disconnect!
Shop, because you definitely need some souvenirs. The best in food, fashion, art in unexpected places, curiosities, antiques-the list could go on and on. Discovering local businesses can be a fun and uplifting experience, and we promise you’ll find new things to love while you support our local merchants. If they don’t have it, they’ll know where to find it!
When all is said and done, don’t forget to take some time to relax and unwind. Walk the streets, get caught by a train, watch a sunset, eat and drink with us, and forget the schedule. Once you’re here, all you’ll want to do is #enjoy.
