Whether guests spend the day or plan a lengthy stay, Visit Corinth is standing by to help visitors discover what the gateway to Mississippi has to offer.

An Introduction to Corinth

Corinth is known as Mississippi’s gateway city, and this is partly due to its location. Sitting in the northeastern corner of the state, Corinth is often one of the first cities people drive through when entering or leaving Mississippi.

It isn’t only a geological gateway, though. The city of Corinth also offers an open door into Mississippi’s history and culture. When you walk, bike, or drive the streets of our city, you’ll notice an abundance of opportunities to explore the past, with attractions such as:

  • Historic buildings, neighborhoods, churches, and cemeteries
  • Heritage sites
  • Four museums
  • National Park Service Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center
  • Pristine Civil War earthworks

Once you experience our history, don’t forget to steep yourself in Mississippi’s beauty and culture. Our streets are lined with trees as much as they are with diverse shops, stunning galleries, and quaint restaurants. Have a burger, shake, soda, and discover the home of the slugburger. Regardless of what your interests are, Corinth has something for you to enjoy.
