The second-longest river in North America is the Mississippi River, which flows for a distance of 2,350 miles. This river carves out the entire western boundary of the state of Mississippi. It also offers a scenic view as well as a unique experience for fishing.

The largest lakes in Mississippi are Grenada Lake, Ross Barnett Reservoir, and Sardis Lake. Each lake exceeds 30,000 acres in area. Pickwick Reservoir is also large in area, but it’s partly in Alabama and Tennessee as well. Mississippi has something for everyone, from outdoor activities to cultural attractions.
