WLOX Editorial: Vacation in our own backyard

Another School year is ending. The weather is warm. And boy could we all use a vacation! As you plan your time away from work or school, we suggest you consider spending some of your vacation time here in Mississippi.

Remember when you spend money in Mississippi, you help the local and state economy. Whether exploring the tourist attractions of the Gulf Coast or the battlefields of Vicksburg, Mississippi has a lot to offer not only for tourists from other states and countries, but also for those of us living right here.

Enjoy your extended time off and we hope to see you vacationing around South Mississippi.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
