In Mississippi, the Great River Road runs through the history of the American South. Take a journey through more than 300 years of history in the historic town of Natchez, with its Antebellum homes, horse-drawn carriages and museums. Take a trip down “Blues Alley” and delve into the story of the blues in places like the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, and listen to live music in many river towns along the way. Woodville is the site of the home of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. In Vicksburg, you’ll find one of the most important battlefields of the Civil War. But the Great River Road in Mississippi offers more than just history. Tunica, at the northern end of Mississippi’s Great River Road, offers casinos, entertainment, museums, river cruises, golf, dining, spas and more. Throughout the journey, you’ll pass through rich agricultural land planted with soybeans, rice and cotton. Don’t miss this important segment of the Great River Road.
