Convenient travel destinations
While temperatures are rising, so are gas prices and travel expenses. With so many wanting to go on beach vacations or tropical getaways, the cost factor can hinder any hopeful venture. Luckily, Ruston residents can easily take a day-trip or a quick weekend excursion.
Located within Interstate 20’s reach are the metropolitan areas of Jackson, Miss., and Shreveport. Approximately two hours away, Jackson offers several “things to do,” including the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum/ National Agricultural Aviation Museum, Medgar Evers Library, the Smith Robertson Museum and Culture Center, the Jackson Zoological Park and the Mississippi Children’s Museum, along with several musical events, festivals and historical homes waiting for a visit.
