Clarksdale is mecca for the blues lovers. Incredible music, juke joints, blues festivals and jams happening throughout the week. Follow the blues trail to the historic sights like the Stovall plantation where Muddy Waters grew up, the Hopson Plantation and Sonny Boy Williamson's II gravesite. Don't miss the Delta Blues Museum. Take a guided canoe trip on the Mississippi and fish for catfish. Try out BBQ and southern cooking at the local restaurants.
