    There are a number of attractions in the area..including the cottonlandia museum and several plantations that are open to visitors..I really enjoy just walking through the downtown looking at the historical buildings and driving through the county enjoying the sites of the fields and crops
    It really does provide a feel of the past..Driving from memphis along the Mississippi through Tunica, Clarksdale, and the other small towns really is like going through history. the area is known as the 'Birthplace of the Blues' and when you see the austere fashion in which the people have lived, it is understandable how the 'Blues' could be so much a part of the culture. With the exception of Tunica which is now a small Las Vegas because of the many gambling boats, the area hasn't changed much in the last 100 years..it is really living history. I actually made the trip from Memphis once to New Orleans going along the same country road through Natchez and down...It was a magnificent trip ! Once in a lifetime experience...
