Roadtripping or exploring your own backyard? Welcome back!
Come explore the Mississippi (and Arkansas!) Delta in ways you otherwise may not experience on your own. We invite local residents, musicians, leaders and goofballs to share their town with you. They'll give you the behind-the-scenes scoop on our blues, bars, and badass nonprofits...or share something you hadn't known, from history to photography. Each is unique -- and always a deeply knowledgeable, passionate, and "authentic" Delta experience.
All experiences are currently based in downtown Clarksdale, Mississippi unless otherwise noted. Contact us to book the Moon Lake Experience, Glendora Experience, Hopson Experience, Delta farm tours, or other customized private and group tours.
Sneak preview: Want to see what makes these experiences unique? Meet the people behind the 'hidden gems.'
Covid status: We've designed most experiences to be outdoors whenever possible. Shared Experiences requests that all participants respect our guides and community by following best practices for public health and safety, including distancing and masking up indoors if you haven't been vaxxed and boosted. Some of us have medically vulnerable friends+family. If this protocol doesn't feel right for you, we're happy to recommend other tours, and welcome you back when it's safe for us to be together "normally" again.
Questions? Just ask!

Looking for more?
We're in the process of adding experiences. If you'd like the hookup for personal training, cooking, birdwatching, wine+paint classes or more downtown – let us know. Yes, this small town's got all that and more. We'd also love to connect you to the Mississippi Delta Chinese Heritage Museum in Cleveland, barhopping in Oxford, and the most rockin' musician on Beale Street. (Oh wait, nevermind on the Memphis musician: he just moved to Clarksdale. #jokingnotjoking) Contact us and we'll connect you.
You can also VisitClarksdale.com for a full list of places to go, eat and stay. Take our virtual tour to see highlights.. There are great museums exploring the history of the blues and Tennessee Williams' time in Clarksdale, and one-of-a-kind spots to enjoy live blues music every single night of the year.
