Experience the Delta Mystique
The Mississippi Delta is a land of mystery and magic where adversity is turned to elation, where trial is transformed to triumph. It is a place where openness and hospitality transcend all barriers and visitors are embraced as family.
The Delta is a place of lush farmlands that stretch in solitude to the horizon, and bustling small towns, like Clarksdale, where shopping is and art form and dining is a ritual. Many excellent restaurants offer everything from tasty regional cuisine to international fare, including Italian, Lebanese, Chinese, Mexican American, and French, served in the most casual of atmospheres surrounded by elegance. Lodging ranges from historic hotels and bed and breakfast inns to family friendly accommodations or luxury hotel suites.
World Capital of the Blues
Almost every day you will find people from around the world walking the streets of the "Birthplace of the Blues," searching out the roots of
America's most original music and discovering its renown "Crossroads."
From front porches of rustic shacks to street corners and juke joints, authentic blues music is still alive in local venues and annual
festivals. Visitors make their mecca to Clarksdale's Historic Blues District - "Blues Alley" - which hosts the Delta Blues Museum in the old
freight depot of the Illinois Central where Muddy Waters stepped aboard the train to make his mark of fame in Chicago.
Small Town Charm
Welcome to Clarksdale and Coahoma County, where in today's world of accelerated living, we work hard to retain our small town charm.
We believe that it's good to enjoy life at a slightly slower pace, and with today's amazing communication options, about the only things we give up are higher prices and traffic congestion.
With Memphis only an hour away, myriad pleasures of a major metropolitan area are right at our doorstep. And when you add in the world-class entertainment regularly presented by dozens of major casinos located just minutes away, we truly have it all.
