Nothing. Cotton/soybean fields. Memphis isn't that far away, though. There are some seasonal riverboat rides on the Tunica Queen, but you are seriously in the middle of nowhere, unless I've missed something. Haven't been in a few years.

I believe Tunica was famous as the poorest county in the United States before the "Riverboat Casinos" brought in billions. But I haven't been there personally, so maybe they've built up the area a bit.

Yeah, I'm like Sam. There isn't much around there except, well....Tunica.

But it's not that far from Clarksdale, if you like - or are interested in - blues music. But we are sightseers of the first order, so we'll tour just about anything and talk to just about everyone. For us everything has some interest.
