Great -place to have some alone time and have some great food along the way. Lots of small little towns but friendly people. I would have liked to have been in the Delta during a blues festival. The museums that I stopped at had very few people so I could take my time and really enjoy the atmosphere . Gas was cheap. I paid $1.98 a gallon. If history is your thing, especially the blues and how it all began. Give it a try

Recent trip down Great River Road, spending most of the time in Greenville. Definitely a little tattered and torn like much of the Delta - closed stores, some decrepit buildings. Reflection that there is little economic opportunity in the Delta - stretching from Memphis to Vicksburg. Many small, fairly run-down towns, with not a lot going on. Of course the 'Blues' and music is part of the atmosphere here, as well as some historical places. Would not necessarily recommend Greenville. Two very average casinos; stark differences between neighborhoods; little obvious energy.
But Greenville does boast Doe's Eat Place - an absolute must for dinner, where you will get the best steak ever!!

I have always had mixed feelings about this part of the south. I was born and raised in West TN, which is essentially an extension of the Mississippi Delta, culturally and geographically. The area around Greenville, some 150 miles south of where I was raised, is the heart of the Delta and is flat farmland in nearly every direction. Often depressing, impoverished and yet an area of importance to our nation's history, there's not much there.

Scenery is field, after field of unknown plants from Hollandale to Greenville. In the small towns remnants of former industry and closed businesses. The hub for shopping is Greenville with hotels, large stores and grocers. Amtrak is in Greenwood. A car is a must. Gas was 1.89 a gal much cheaper than our 2.59. A large state park is there for camping and other outdoor events. Not sure who enjoys the outdoors -- too many mosquitos day and night. The open space made our drive pleasant and peaceful
