Mississippi Holidays

Home to the Delta Blues

One of the most mythical and largest states in the USA, Mississippi has been home to plenty of famous faces over the years from B.B. King, James Earl Jones and Oprah Winfrey to Tammy Wynette, Jim Henson and Leanne Rimes.

We love Mississippi for its rural country roads, old-fashioned jukebox joints, tasty catfish and expansive musical heritage. Follow the Mississippi Blues Trail to learn more about the impact this State has had on popular music, explore the picturesque Natchez Trace Parkway or step back in time with a visit to one of the regions beautiful antebellum mansions in Natchez.

Take a leisurely drive and experience the small pleasures of the South, including the literary legacy of William Faulkner, birthplace of the Delta blues, captivating cotton country and stop in Tupelo to discover the humble origins of Elvis Presley with a visit to his birthplace and the hardware store where he bought his first guitar.
