Why rent a car in Clinton?
Situated in the Jackson metropolitan area, the city of Clinton lies close to the border with Louisiana, in the heart of America’s Deep South. Near to both the Bienville National Forest and Homochitto National Forest, as well as the Mississippi river that snakes across the state border, Clinton is well positioned for exploring a range of Mississippi’s outstanding natural landscapes.
With a hire car, you can easily explore beyond Clinton to destinations such as Meridian (an hour and a half’s drive), home to the elaborate MSU Riley Center, also known as the Grand Opera House, where a whole host of live music performances take place throughout the year.

Tips and tricks for driving in Clinton
Driving in Clinton, like much of America, is largely straightforward, with wide lanes and simple road layouts. Cars drive on the right-hand side of the road and you can overtake on both sides. You can also perform a U-turn at the end of most junctions – it will be marked if you are not allowed to do so. Most American cars are automatic, so remember to request a stick shift if you would prefer one.
