Pascagoula, Mississippi, where we ended our hopscotching across Mississippi, is a town of about 22,000 people with some beautiful homes and a pleasant signposted bike route using quiet roads that takes you all around town.
It’s also where Jimmy Buffett was born. Yes, the modest house is on the bike route. Will it ever become a Buffett museum? There’s also Buffett Bridge (signed by Mr. Buffett himself) and Buffett Beach.
If that’s not your style, there are connections to President Zachary Taylor (remember him from your history books, just barely?), to William Faulkner and to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow here too.
