Mighty Mississippi Road Trip


Say Hello to Old Man River! The vast fertile flatlands of what is known as the Mississippi Delta were created by thousands of years of flooding by the Mississippi River.  The soil and the climate created one the world’s most important agricultural economies.  The Mississippi Great River Road National Scenic Byway runs along the river through Mississippi’s western most counties.  To drive along the Great River Road takes you through what has been called “the most Southern place on Earth.”  Several exhibits along the Great River Road detail the history of the river and the people who settled along its fertile crescent.
