Start your Delta blues tour in Tunica

by The 100 Companies

To get there, drive 40 miles south down Highway 61, until the hills suddenly drop onto the flat, rich plain in Mississippi. Start your immersion at Tunica’s Gateway to the Blues Visitor Center, built in a circa-1895 train depot.

It’s the perfect introduction to your musical journey. Learn how the blues were born, view displays about famous musicians, see their guitars, harmonicas and George Hunt’s paintings of the artists – even record your own blues song. 

CEO Webster Franklin helped raise $1.8 million and curated most of the collection, much of which was originally assembled by Tunica’s Horseshoe Casino. Gift shop a must.
