The Pines Region of Mississippi consists of Native American homelands and historic towns within a traditional country atmosphere. The charming city of Columbus boasts antebellum homes and antique shops. In Starkville the dairy science plant at the university produces cheese; Meridian offers a few museums, and the towns of Kosciusko and French Camp, popular since the 18th century, still exude a friendly frontier charm.

Another major attraction of the region is the enormous and bustling Silver Star Resort & Casino located near Philadelphia, and owned by the Choctaw Indians whose reservation is nearby.
