The best source for everything Deep South USA


Tunica, Mississippi

Tunica is the perfect mix of excitement and Southern charm. Seven casino resorts rise above fields of cotton and soybeans. Experience a big win, Blues history and down-home cooking all in one place! Tunica is the Gateway to the Blues and the Delta and is a must-see when you cross the Mississippi state line.

Begin your Mississippi Delta tour at the Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitor Center located on Blues Highway 61 and housed in an original 1895 train depot. It is the perfect start for your journey into the unique blues music heritage of the Delta. The gift shop offers specialty, Delta blues and Mississippi Delta items and is a one-of-a-kind venue.

The Mississippi Blues Trails starts in Tunica and features six markers on Blues stories like Son House and James Cotton. For live music, experience red-hot headliners in premier casino venues or live music from local bands at a stage bar. 

Live it up at one of Tunica’s eight world-class casino resorts featuring slots, table games and now Sports Betting. Or tee off at one of two 18-hole golf courses, Tunica National Golf & Tennis or River Bend Links.

Savour Southern favourites like fried green tomatoes and catfish at the Home of the Fried Dill Pickle, Hollywood Café, made famous in the song “Walking in Memphis”.

Tunica RiverPark allows visitors a chance to explore and better understand the history of America's Greatest River. Tunica RiverPark includes a large historic museum and interpretive center, complete with aquariums, interactive exhibits and dioramas that reveal the legends of the past. The 168-acre Tunica RiverPark includes nature trails, outdoor exhibits, an observation deck and veranda offering spectacular views of the Mississippi River. 

Enjoy a country-style breakfast at Highway 61’s Blue & White Restaurant opened in 1937 inside an old Pure Oil gas station. Taste the legendary “biscuits” or grab a box of donuts for the road.
