Hmmm... that might be challenging. Not much to do in Starkville outside the university. There is a federal wildlife refuge about 15 miles south. There are gators (probably hibernated by then) and some bald eagles. They have a few nice hiking trails and a pretty lake (but you have to bring your own canoe). In Columbus, about 30 minutes east, there are lots of antebellum homes, some are open for tours year round. In Tupelo, about an hour north, there is the Elvis birthplace and a fantastic automobile museum.

There might be other things, but I've just listed the things that came to mind immediately. A lot of it depends, of course, on the types of things you are interested in.

You can visit the jail house where Johnny Cash spent a night in jail in the 60's for pulling flowers.

That's a joke but the story is true and he wrote a song about it - In the middle of the night after a concert, probably amped up on pills, he jumped over a fence to pull some flowers and got thrown in the Starkville jail for the night for tresspassing.

Default Whay to do in Starkville

I saw your inquiry about what you can do while in Starkville, and know it is after you were going to be in Starkville,but I do know a few things you can do.
I live in Maben, Mississippi, 18 miles west of Starkville, and there are a lot of things you can see in starkville, and oktibbeha County the next time ypou are here.
Thjere are a lot of interesting things you can see around Starkville, and in the coiunty, such as thew Reese berry Farm, and the Mahew Tomato Farm, and a lot of interesting places on the Mississippi State University campus, and just 18 miles west of Starkville on highway 12 west is the home or the Sturgis, Mississippi Motorcycle Rally too.
Here in maben is a plaque at the place whgere Charles Lindbergh landed when he was a young man and stayed in Maben at a boarding house, and when he got a new propellor that had been damaged, he took people up for flights for fifty cents and a dollar.
Years later when mr. Lindbergh became famous, he wrote a book about his barnstormoing days, and told about his stay in Maben. The book is entitled."WE".
I have several pictures of the house where mr. Lindbergh stayed, which is still standing, and a cousin of mine lives in it. I can send them to you by email if you would like to have them.

I was born in Lincoln County, MS in 1944. Farm boy I was, went to MSU, got a degree in engineering. Today, my total assets are about $32,000. I would not wish a career in engineering on even my worst enemies. There are no jobs for white male engineers in these United States. All the jobs have been sold to foreigners and women by our politicians. As for Mississippi, nothing has changed much since 1944 except there are now pine trees everywhere you look. There was a time when one could walk into a Mississippi forest and actually see old hardwood trees. No more. They are all gone. The day is soon coming when the white male engineers will pack their bags and leave the US to go live elsewhere. When that happens, all hell is going to break loose in these United States.
