Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Mississippi Off the Beaten Path show you the Magnolia State you never knew existed. Purchase stone-ground cornmeal from the oldest continuously operating water mill in the United States at Sciple's Water Mill; listen to first-class blues music at Margaret's Blue Diamond Lounge in Clarksdale; or stay in the Shack Up Inn to get a genuine plantation experience. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
