Hi Folks - We're a couple of seniors planning a ride in our soft top Jeep Wrangler down to the Delta, heading primarily to Clarksdale, Merigold, and Greenwood. The Crossroads is on our minds as well as the Shack Up Inn. We're also interested in the Riverside Hotel, owned by "Rat". Also on the list is the Cat Head Blues & Folk Art, Abe's Bar-B-Que, Red's Juke Joint, and Ground Zero.

What's your advice on getting the most out of our trip relating to food and music? Any spot we definitely do NOT want to miss? Also, any out of the ordinary tips on anything else for a couple of geezers with a non-secure vehicle ... maybe like safety or maybe like some particular place to avoid?

Thanks for your expertise.

The best of the Delta is the Alluvian hotel in Greenwood, very Delta glory days 1920s atmosphere at its best but all new and very sheik with bars, social gathering areas, and a restaurant that people come to from all over the Delta.

Across the river from downtown Greenwood, Grand Blvd makes for a lovely historic district for driving or walking.

Greenwood has several other local restaurants that people come to for their local flavor from all over the Delta.

Beyond that, I would visit Vicksburg and Natchez, river towns on hills but just across the MS river from the Louisiana Delta.

Good tip on leaving the Jeep unlocked and accessible. What's chances of the Jeep [itself] being taken?

Great information. We'll definitely check out that hotel. If anything else comes to mind, please don't hesitate to send it along. Thanks.

no more than any other vehicle, a car thief will take any vehicle they want-locked or not. a crackhead looking for something to sell will cut the top and rummage thru and be gone in a minute or two.

Try the Blues Hound Flat in Clarksdale it is right down the road from the Blue Museum. As for the food in Greenwood try the Crystal Grill mostly for the pie which Chef Cat Cora even can tell you about, the Blue Parrot closed up which was great food along with the Blues Museum upstairs.

Greetings from the Tamale Trail | An SFA Documentary Project

Any place on here will be good. Clarksdale is an hour from Greenville and Doe's Eat Place. The best steak and tamales you can find anywhere. Alton Brown has featured them on his "Feasting on Asphalt" show.
