Introduction of Mississippi
Mississippi is a medium sized state located in the southern US along the Gulf of Mexico. The majority of the state's economy is dependent on the Mississippi River, which is an important shipping lane running thorough the central United States. For this reason, many business travellers stay at Mississippi hotels along the border with Louisiana and Arkansas. The capital city, Jackson is also home to a number of accommodations. Most of these properties are motor inns or budget oriented buildings for travellers passing through the state on their way to Texas or the east coast along Interstate 20. Farther south, there are some beautiful resort towns along the Gulf of Mexico. The southern coast of the region is also home to the city of Gulfport, a major US oil industry hub. Naturally, there are several properties in the area geared towards businesspeople, and lodging varies from low end economy motels to five-star resorts.
