Golf, tennis, swimming, eating, and musical performances at the casinos and nearby hotels. Beyond that, in Memphis you can hit Beale Street for bars and blues and visit Harbor Town on Mud Island and walk by the river. In Southaven at I-55 and Goodman Rd they have typical suburban shopping, movie theatre etc. The town square in Hernando has a couple of good restraurants.

snapper, my wife and I goto Tunica/Memphis all the time. Do yourself a favor and eat at the Hollywood Cafe. The food is amazingly good, plus it just has that old time vibe to it. I definitely recommend the grilled catfish. It's only a few minutes from the casinos too

Does anyone know if the MGM development and the the other big project for Tunica are still alive?

I think most large projects are on hold.

Besides the already recommended activities, Paula Dean's restaurant in Harrah's is our favorite.

Back from our trip and ate at paula dean's . It was great . Pure southern cooking. Did'nt make it to the hollywood cafe, but did hear it was good. One thing I did'nt like was it was out in the middle of nowhere. To do anything other than gamble you had to dive aways. It was like the casinos did'nt what any other type of compatition directly in the area.

snapper, next trip hit the Hollywood. It's where deep fried dill pickle chips were invented years ago. You are right about Tunica out in the middle of nowhere, but I guess that is what people said about Vegas 50 years ago. Tunica is growing, give it another 10-15 years and it will be totally different

That's odd. I was eating fried dill pickles long before there were casinos in Tunica. Where did you get this bit of information?

The Hollywood Cafe has been around for generations. The current location is since the early 80's I believe. It got the name Hollywood Cafe, because it used to be in Hollywood, Mississippi. The Travel Channel did a feature on the Hollywood Cafe. The owner was interviewed, and I believe said that they invented the deep fried pickle chip somewhere around 1969.
