Located on 640 South Canal Street, the Visitor Reception Center has visitor parking, Natchez exhibits, National Park Service Info, and a 20-minute show, "The Natchez Story". It also has a Natchez Logo Gift Shop, a bookstore, and tickets for special events, carriage tours and city tours, historic homes tours, and Melrose. There are also hotel reservations. The Historic City Tour was costly. They began in the back of the building, where you got into this small white bus with a tour guide who'd tell you about the places--homes such as Rosalie and Stanton Hall--drive you Under The Hill and up and down the city streets. The woman we had knew what she was talking about, but she couldn't speak clearly enough to understand her. But other than that, I really enjoyed seeing the city and its unique buildings. In addition to the Center, there's two other websites that can help you become familiar with Natchez and its accomodations. The first is http://www.natchezms.com/index.html, where there is everything from accomodations to restaurants. The second is the "3 Natchez Ladies Beds and Breakfasts'" that shows three charming B & B's in Natchez at http://www.3natchezladies.com.
