Aberdeen's picturesque tree-lined streets and busy shopping district complement the city's proximity to the scenic Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, which provides a water route to the world, connecting the inland waters of the Tennessee River with the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, Aberdeen was founded because of her location on the Tombigbee River and her proximity to rich prairie land ideal for cotton farming. 
As a historic port city, Aberdeen is accustomed to hosting and accommodating travelers. Residents and visitors alike share access to the area's recreational treasures, which range from community wide events such as festivals and parades to the individual and group activities of shopping, hunting, fishing, hiking and golfing. The city also nurtures local cultural riches, such as theater performances, celebrations and tours, and one of the most complete and varied libraries in Mississippi.
