Delta Region Inns
While cotton fields have given way to casinos, one thing remains constant in Mississippi’s Delta region: it is truly the birthplace of the blues. Even today, visitors can visit a Delta blues juke joint or attend one of the region’s lively festivals to experience our rich musical and cultural heritage. The Delta Region is found in the northwest and west-central part of the state, bordered by the Mississippi River on the west. Cities in this region with member B&Bs include:
While Mississippi’s Delta Region is home to picturesque towns, and swaths of cotton fields, it is also home to dynamic urban settings. In fact, with nine casinos, three signature golf courses, and dozens of eateries, Tunica has become a popular destination for visitors, and is the top casino destination between Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Visitors can also discover the region’s heritage at our very own 1850’s cotton plantation reproduction: the Florewood River Plantation State Park.
Flanked on the west by the Mississippi River, the Delta Region is also home to tributary rivers and numerous oxbow lakes that offer world-class fishing for anglers and ample opportunities for on-water fun. The Delta National Forest and numerous state parks provide an abundance of recreation options including hiking, camping and picnicking.
With its largely subtropical climate, Mississippi’s weather is often mild with temperatures rarely dipping below 40 degrees F in the coldest months. Summers boast plenty of warmth, and temperatures often reach 100 degrees F. Coastal breezes offer some cooling outdoor relief. August and September boast the highest humidity levels of the year, averaging 90%. While spring boasts the highest rainfall potential, December and January are often wet, as snowfall in the north translates to rain here in Mississippi.
