Meridian flights are your ticket to an intriguing Mississippi city with a historic downtown, rich musical heritage, lakes, golf courses, and some superb parks. With its heyday as a railroad hub long in the past, cheap vacation packages to Meridian for today's travelers mean flying into Meridian Regional Airport (MEI). Upon arrival, though, you'll enjoy such timeless pursuits as strolling through the 3,300-acre Bonita Lakes park, fishing on the lake, or going to see the picturesque 65-foot Dunn's Falls. A major highlight of Meridian is the Dentzel Carousel in Highland Park. Operating since the turn of the century, it's a National Historic Landmark.
After flights to Meridian land at MEI, which is approximately 3 miles from downtown, passengers have two transportation options – renting a car or taking a taxi. One rental car company operates at the airport, and you'll find its office inside the terminal. The airport is served by a taxi company, and you can pick up a cab outside the terminal, or call in advance to arrange prompt pick-up. Centrally located hotels in Meridian are just minutes away, as are the top sights of the city, such as the Meridian Museum of Art, and the Jimmie Rodgers Museum, dedicated to the "Father of Country Music." Meridian boasts nine districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and you can explore them on foot.
