Unique Vacation Spots in the Delta
In the market for a decent meal and a basic hotel room?
But if you're on the lookout for a quirky, eclectic, one-of-a-kind eating and sleeping adventure, a photo opportunity, and a story to tell your friends back home, there's no place like the Mississippi Delta.
Here you'll sample delicacies from deep-fried pickles to deep dish pecan pie, and discover there is definitely more than one way to serve a catfish. The Delta's backroads lead to ramshackle barbecue joints, roadside stands selling Delta tamales, and rickety eateries that look as though nothing more than good luck and grease is holding them together, but the mouthwatering Mississippi cuisine they serve proves that beauty is only skin deep.
When your tummy is full and it's time to rest your head, the Delta can put you up in style. Antebellum mansions, creaky cotton gins, cozy fishin' cabins, and renovated sharecroppers' shacks have all been re-purposed as funky, fabulous accommodations and eclectic hotels. Here, the lobby might be a cotton field, the pool is likely stocked with trophy bass, your bellhop could double as a blues musician, and your concierge just might be the ghost of a Civil War soldier.
Following is a sampling of the Delta’s unique vacation spots–the off-the-wall, off-the-beaten path places to eat and sleep on the backroads of Mississippi.
The tables are scarred, the chairs are mismatched, and the décor includes empty wine and whiskey bottles converted into lamps. Add delicious steaks, seafood, and Italian dishes, and this off-the-beaten-path gem is a “can’t miss” Delta experience.
