When I think of southern farming, I think of cotton. Driving through northern Louisiana, the southeast tip of Arkansas and on into Mississippi, we were a little disappointed that the rows and rows of vegetation we saw was not cotton. Soybean is now king in the Delta, with some corn crops thrown in there. From talking to the local people,... More

You can travel Hwy-16 north and south or Hwy-82 east and west. The delta starts north of Vicksburg to Walnut MS (just south of Memphis) and from Greenwood MS to the Mississippi River. With a little internet search you can discover many Native American site and names. The primary industry is agriculture but we also have several colleges and universities.... More

The Mississippi Delta is full of things to do and places to eat. The Black Rodeo is coming to Jackson, Ms. B.B. King Museum is an exciting place to visit. Leroy State Park and Glen Allen park are great places to visit.

The Mississippi Delta is a bit different. We've been coming here for many years for the winter waterfowl hunting. Flat, open expanses of crops and desolate run down communities. There is a beauty to the place in its desolation during Winter. The land is abandoned to all but the wildlife and migrating birds that arrive, and leave in waves.

Good rich black delta topsoil makes for good cotton production. Huge fields demand huge machinery and you can see it in the delta.

Enjoyed being home in the delta (Leland) so much was going on. Enjoyed myself thoroughly. Enjoyed fishing on the banks of deer creek and just relaxing. Driving out into the countryside reminds you of what you miss in the city. The more the delta changes the more it remains the same. The Ms Delta Hot Tamales are still the best... More

The Mississippi Delta has always existed in my mind as a very unique region -- that is, a distinctive blend of landscape and agriculture (flat land, rich soil, cotton), music (blues, rock & roll), food (catfish, BBQ ribs), lifestyles and folkways (very, very southern), natural hazards (floods, tornadoes), deprivation (especially rural black poverty), and much more. I’d never thought much... More

The Mississippi Delta is a place like no other, and it brings a true appreciation for the blues when you visit the birthplace of this iconic American music genre. Driving up with a friend, she told me, "I need to smell the dirt at least once a year." As you drive north, you drive back in time too. Wow! I... More

The Mississippi Delta is a place I read about many times but to see it up close and personal was so very different from the shot gun houses to the cotton fields to friendly faces and friendly hellos.
