Delta

Just 30 minutes south of Memphis, Tennessee, lay the Mississippi River towns of Tunica and Robinsonville. Here you’ll find a string of casinos with bright lights, bustling activities and world-renowned entertainment.

The Delta, in the northwest part of the state, is best known as the "Birthplace of the Blues." Cleveland's GRAMMY Museum Mississippi (currently the only GRAMMY Museum in the world outside of Los Angeles) immortalizes the region's (and states's) contributions to the world of music. Indianola's state-of-the-art B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center allows visitors to get an inside look at the King of Blues’ legacy, while the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale traces the history and influence of this unique music genre as a whole.

The southern half of the Delta has some of the world’s richest farmland. But the area has also produced some incomparable sites of interest. Greenwood is a major agricultural center. Nearby Leland is home to Kermit’s “Birthplace of the Frog” exhibit, a tribute to Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets® and a native Mississippian.
