Boasting more antebellum homes than anywhere in the U.S., this charming town on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River is best visited in the spring and fall, when pilgrimages to historic houses are in full swing. With its semitropical climate, however, the city is pleasant year-round, though it can get muggy during the summer months.
