Journey from Memphis to Merigold, Mississippi, for juke joints, hot tamales, and Morgan Freeman at the crossroads.
You won’t find a more authentic Delta stay than in these sparsely furnished sharecropper shacks in Clarksdale. Think bottle trees in the yards, Baptist church fans on the walls, Mardi Gras beads wrapped around old jugs, and six-packs left in the fridge.
