No better way to begin,
than by sharing a quote from a bellman,
"we make it happen here at the Grand".
From the moment you enter the gates
The flowers were soaking up the sun and enjoying the humidity.
"can't say the heat & humidity was pleasurable"
A brick paved walkway surrounds the resort
almost to the entirety.
Great for bicycles and
midnight strolls with the sweetheart.
Hammocks for relaxing.

Each afternoon at 4:00 sharp
the cannon is fired to salute today's
military and those who have passed through the
historic hotel through the years.
The ceremony begins with a military band
marching around the property and ending at the Cannon.
The first hotel was built in 1830 at Point Clear.
In 1860 the hotel was used as a military hospital,
after the Battle of Vicksburg.
A Confederate Cemetery, adjacent to the hotel grounds
is a resting place for more than 300 soliders who died
at Point Clear.
Enjoy the remaining pictures.
The hotel was closed in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina
and reopened in November 2006
following a 50 million dollar renovation.
