Premier Shopping Ridgeland’s retail districts offer some of the finest shopping in Mississippi. Boutiques, galleries, and antique stores are located from one end of the city to the other.

Parks & Trails Ridgeland is Mississippi’s ultimate cycling destination, and it’s not just for the historic Natchez Trace Parkway that runs through the city. Multi-use walking and biking trails, BMX tracks and year-round cycling events attribute to Ridgeland’s status as an ABA Bronze Level “bike-friendly” community.
Foodie Flavors With over 150 restaurants, Ridgeland is a food lover’s dream. From southern cooking family-style to fine fusion cuisine, the city is bursting with locally sourced flavors. Try CAET seafood + oysterette by chef Derek Emerson, or one of the eateries that earned Ridgeland the reputation of Steakhouse Capital of Mississippi.
Water meets wonderful along the 33,000 acres of the Barnett Reservoir. Featured as a stop on the Mississippi Crappie Trail, “the Rez” provides a haven for boaters, kayakers, anglers, paddle boarders, picnickers, and birdwatchers.
