Like history? Meridian is rich with it. Take your limousine companions on a tour of Merrehope. Once the headquarters of the Confederate Army, it's one of the few places General Sherman didn't burn to the ground in his sweep of the south. Your limousine group is welcome to tour this 20 room mansion and see just how elegant the architecture of the old south really was. You can almost picture Scarlet O'Hara descending down Merrehope's graceful staircase.
Appreciate art and craftsmanship? Then your limousine friends will surely enjoy a visit to the Dentzel Carousel. This masterpiece was created back in 1909, and is on the list of National Historic Landmarks. Every horse is hand carved and uniquely painted, while original oil paintings cover the panels of the carousel's crown. Be sure to get pictures of this attraction with your limousine pals.

A site your limousine tour shouldn't miss.
When you and your limousine tour companions get hungry, O'Charley's is waiting for you. This Meridian eatery offers delectable aged beef, wonderful seasoned and seared to keep the juices inside until you make that first cut.
