Mississippi Delta

116mi / 187km

Leaving Tennessee behind, follow historic Highway 61 from Memphis to Cleveland, located in the much-loved Mississippi Delta! Cotton Row, in the centre of Cleveland’s Crosstie historic district, is lined with little restaurants, cafes, and galleries. The district is named for the railway that made Cleveland’s economy thrive in the late 1800s; railroad buffs will want to visit the Martin and Sue King Railroad Heritage Museum to learn more. Cleveland is also proud to be the location of the Grammy Museum, celebrating the best in music. From your base in Cleveland, where you’ll spend three nights, you are able to discover the whole of this beautiful area. A few miles outside Cleveland, you’ll find Dockery Farms where Charley Patton learned to play the blues and set history in motion. Also ensure you visit Clarksdale, Greenville, Greenwood and Tunica where a wealth of attractions await. One things is for sure – when you travel the roads of this region you’ll find that every stop has its own distinct individuality and character, each worthy of exploration. Edge-of-cotton-field blues clubs, BBQ shacks as old as the road itself, and a culture and history that runs deep.
