The Mississippi Blues Trail

For a die-hard blues enthusiast, traveling the Mississippi Blues Trail is a dream come true. For those less familiar with this soulful mix of rock & roll, jazz and rhythm & blues, it's an unforgettable -- and maybe unexpected -- experience.
The hundreds of miles of Mississippi Blues Trail explore the history of blues music and the lives of the musicians who made their mark in the Delta. With more than 100 fascinating landmarks, it's a mile-upon-mile enshrinement of musical gods. But maybe more than that, the trail is a true uncensored look into one of America's most captivating regions.
