At Blackburn CDJR we’re proud of a lot, including our home state of Mississippi. Get a feel for what we and many other Mississippians love about this state by taking one of these Mississippi road trips this summer.
Devil’s Crossroads, Junction US 61 & 49, Clarksdale
This iconic intersection is a must-see stop for any fan of the blues. Legend has it that here is where blues singer Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil, right on Blues Highway, aka US 61. Stop here for a moment to take a picture with the guitar signpost and to listen for a whisper of Johnson’s long-lost soul.
Natchez Trace, Natchez
You can’t expect to spend too much time out of the car at the Devil’s Crossroads, but you can certainly take your time exploring on Natchez Trace. This historic forest trail stretches 440 miles starting in Natchez and ending in Nashville. Just in hiking the section between Jackson and Natchez, you’ll see things like Native American mounds and plenty of beautiful natural scenery.
Delta Hot Tamale Trail
For foodies, there’s no better Mississippi road trip than the Delta Hot Tamale Trail. This food trail was put together by the Southern Foodways Alliance, and a map on their website will lead your through the state to find the best tamales in every corner.
