Daytrip: Greenwood, Mississippi

Stay safe, and enjoy the weekend y'all! We love a good socially-distanced #roadtrip, and had a great day in Greenwood.


Highlights of places to see, shop, stay and eat in Greenwood, Mississippi:

1️⃣ Check out the Museum of the Mississippi Delta mural by @robinwhitfieldstudio -- see how many scenes from local Delta life you can spot.

2️⃣ Stop at the Old Time Farmers Market across the street. Pick up some roadtrip snacks, or a cool plant to try in your own #ImperfectGardening adventures. Tell Mr. Martin Tribble we say hi!

3️⃣#BYO jetski, boat, or picnic basket to the Yazoo River boatramp! (Bonus: watching boats + trucks = #toddleractivities)

4️⃣ Admire the iconic green apples at @the_alluvian. If you can linger, stay for happy hour or the night.

5️⃣ Support your #independentbookstore -- @turnrowbooks is awesome!

6️⃣ Take a self-guided driving tour of all the beautiful, historic locations where The Help was filmed. Map and guide: www.VisitGreenwood.com

7️⃣ Get to #knowyourhistory. Stop at the site of Bryant's Grocery & Meat Market to remember Emmett Till and learn about how civil rights sprang from the Mississippi Delta.

8️⃣ Follow the #BluesTrail to what we're pretty sure is legend Robert Johnson's final resting place at the Little Zion Church along Money Road.


As you go, tag @travelgreenwood and #thatssodelta so future travelers can find the footsteps of your adventures! As you @visitthedelta and @visitms, they'd love to see your #travelgram too.
