Mississippi Bucket List- Delta Region

Phew! Things have been a bit of a whirlwind after learning that we will be moving to South Dakota this summer following Andrew’s Call Day placement ceremony at the end of April. We’ve finally made all our moving plans and now are spending a month on the road visiting family before heading back to St. Louis to back up our belongings and move north in the middle of July. I will do my best to stay more active on this blog even through all those transitions, but no promises!

Here’s the 4th of 5 installments in the Mississippi Bucket List Regions.

Belzoni

  • Catfish Museum: This is apparently the Catfish Capitol of the World which makes it worth the stop as is. It also claims to be home to the World’s Largest Catfish, which is interesting since we thought we had recently visited that in Whapeton, ND.

Clarksdale

  • Delta Blues Museum: Great place to get some history on Blues in this area.

Cleveland

  • Grammy Museum Mississippi: This is the first Grammy museum to be built outside of the Los Angeles area.

Greenville

  • Greenville Cypress Preserve Trust: This sounds like a fun place to visit to see the natural beauty of the area.

Greenwood

  • Self Guided Driving Tour of “The Help”: I loved both the book and movie so I think this would be really fun!

Indianola

  • B.B. King Museum: Museum dedicated to the King of the Blues.

Leland

  • Birthplace of Kermit the Frog Museum: Doesn’t need much explanation. I love the Muppets!

Rolling Fork

  • Onward Store: This store was where Teddy Bears made their debut.

Tunica

  • Tunica Riverpark and Museum: Provides a nice walk along the river and gives a brief history of the area.
  • Gateway to the Blues Museum: Gives a nice overview of the Blues genre.

All ideas were pulled from both the 2017 and 2018 Mississippi Travel Guides.
