Mississippi - Part Three - Clarksdale in the Delta

Clarksdale, Mississippi is more than it appears.

Even though we said we were not having a schedule on this trip, we did want to spend more time in Vicksburg and Natchez so we only spent a couple of hours in Clarksdale.
Being only a few hours drive for us we can visit again easily.

There was much more to see here.
If you can't visit in person, check out the links I've included.

spent part of his childhood in Clarksdale.

is owned, in part, by Actor Morgan Freeman.

The Delta Blues Museum

The Mississippi Delta is a place that you need to research first,
understand what you are going to see and embrace it.
It is not a traditional vacation spot and if you are not interested in the history of Mississippi 
and its people, it is not for you, and I would not take my kids.

Great tip to research any area, actually, before spending the time and money visiting it. So much is missed otherwise.

Great photos, as usual. :-)
