MONEY and TripAdvisor recently partnered to find the most popular destinations in each state.
And for Missisippi, that was the Tupelo Automobile Museum.
The rating is based not on the number of visits necessarily, but on the ratings given to the destinations via TripAdvisorl.
Here’s what MONEY had to say about the top spots:
Whether you’ve planned a trip or you’re making a pit stop on a long drive, a new city has a lot to offer. Between museums, city landmarks and national parks, each U.S. state has its own culture and history tourists can learn from.
That’s why MONEY worked with TripAdvisor to identify the most popular tourist activity in every state. Their data revealed that while landmarks and museums remains most popular attraction for newcomers, tours and trips that reveal something about a particular region’s culture – whether it be a living history museum or a brewery bus tour – often outdraw the cultural landmarks.
To come up with the data, TripAdvisor looked at on-site bookings for attractions, tours and activities for all of 2017, and picked the most popular. For the seven states that did not have enough data for TripAdvisor to analyze –Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Oklahoma – MONEY subbed in TripAdvisor’s highest-rated thing to do.
For the auto museum, MONEY said, “Gearheads will enjoy perusing one of North America’s largest collection of cars, with luxury and sport vehicles dating back to 1886.”
The Tupelo Auto Museum has more than 100 cars on display, and is open Monday – Saturday from 9 al.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday Noon to 4:30 p.m. It’s losed on New Year’s, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For more info, follow this link.
