Long considered the cradle of blues music, Mississippi is a haven for music lovers. In this part of the USA, you can retrace the footsteps of legends from the music hall of fame.
Legends such as Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson and Elvis Presley. For fans of the latter, a trip to his hometown of Tupelo should be added to the itinerary, as well as the bordering state of Tennessee, with Memphis city breaks within easy reach. The city of Clarksdale is another popular stop for music lovers, with the Delta Blues Museum providing a fascinating look into the invention of rock 'n' roll.
Unwind in one of the many restaurants and bars in the Delta, discover the region's poignant history or embark on a journey through its literary offerings. Visit the Vicksburg National Military Park, the site of an important Civil War battle, laze on one of the sandy beaches along the Mississippi Gulf Coast or wander through historic towns and the surrounding countryside. For the ultimate music-lovers trip, our Mississippi tours are combined with holidays to Memphis and Nashville, to enjoy famous attractions such as Sun Studio, Beale Street and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Being in the deep south, Mississippi tours are sure to be full of great food.
Look out for regional favourites such as Delta Tamales - corn dough filled with meat and simmered, scone-like biscuits, and comeback sauce, a spicy sauce that was invented at Jackson's own Mayflower Café.
There are few better authentic Mississippi dining experiences than soaking up the atmosphere at a local restaurant while feasting on seafood such as catfish, crawfish, oysters and crab, as well as Mississippi mudbugs in the summer.
Fulfil sugar cravings with a slice of Mississippi mud pie, a dessert made with chocolate pudding, cream, and marshmallow on a biscuit base, or caramel cake, a layered sponge cake smothered in caramel frosting.
