This shining city on the Natchez Trace offers discerning travelers an unexpected melding of nature and style. Outdoor adventure and upscale architecture. Historic trails and modern design. In fact, Ridgeland was designed to make the most of Mississippi’s beautiful weather, bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out.

The north shore banks of the Barnett Reservoir wind along the Natchez Trace Parkway and greet visitors with natural beauty and outstanding recreational opportunities.

The Bill Waller Crafts Center features works of over 150 artisans, who are members of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi. The multi-million dollar center features artisan works, a blacksmith shop, a woodworkers shop, meeting space, outdoor demonstrations and exhibits.

The city is full of excitement, including Art, Wine and Wheels, a jam-packed weekend combining 3 of Ridgeland’s signature events. Browse among fine art at the Ridgeland Fine Arts Festival, sip exquisite wine at the Santé South Wine Festival and ride along scenic byway in the Natchez Trace Century Ride.

Be sure to visit the Ridgeland Visitor Center located in the Renaissance at Colony Park, a vibrant venue for shopping, dining and entertainment.
