Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes to you on Thanksgiving weekend from a true oasis in Mississippi—Natchez. The charming river town is celebrating its tricentennial—with the best preserved antebellum architecture anywhere, and a hub for culture, music, and history. How about a mayor who won with 91 percent of the vote? Darryl Grennell stops by to talk about the rich history of Natchez and how it has shaped the area today. Also joining us is US Parks Superintendent Kathleen Bond to talk about the story of Natchez historical park. The New York Times bestselling author Greg Isles discusses his newest book, Mississippi Blood, and the influence Natchez has had on so many of his stories. But let’s not forget rum—Natchez is now distilling some pretty amazing stuff, and Jean-Luc Charboneau explains how that happened, and talks about the boom in artisanal distilling throughout the United States. There’s all of that and more as Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from Natchez, Mississippi.
