Tunica, Mississippi, is one of the South’s premier gaming and entertainment destinations. We are just 20 minutes from Memphis, Tennessee — home of Graceland®, Sun Studio, Stax Museum and world-famous Beale Street.
In Tunica you’ll find that music is in our blood. Pride in our blues heritage is abundant throughout the city. Our Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center and Museum is an excellent starting point for your Mississippi Delta adventure. Located at the entrance of the Tunica Resort area along U.S. Highway 61, this one-of-a-kind destination is housed in an original 1895 train depot and offers a unique view into our rich musical history. Tunica is the perfect place to begin your tour of the legendary Mississippi Blues Trail. This scenic highway explores the rich heritage of Mississippi-born blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Son House.
If you’re looking for action, Tunica is the home to nine world-class casino resorts. You’ll find all of your favorite table games and machines: blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, Texas hold ‘em and, of course, the loosest slots around. If thrill-a-minute gaming isn’t your style, there are still plenty of options to explore: fine-dining opportunities, delicious buffets and the hottest entertainment between Atlantic City and Las Vegas. You’ll find a dazzling array of red-hot headliners, live music and comedy acts any night of the week in Tunica.
If you’re more of a sporting person, tee off at one of our three championship-level golf courses. The Tunica National golf course features a tournament-level, 18-hole championship course that is playable for all skill levels, while River Bend Links offers a Scottish links-style course designed to give discriminating golfers a true test of their game. Voted “Best Golf” by the 2007 Casino Player Awards, The Links at Cottonwoods offers gently rolling fairways and landscaped cart paths.
Our beautiful parks, majestic riverboat rides and seasonal festivals leave a lasting impression on visitors. Our temperate climate means you can explore the lush beauty of the Mississippi Delta practically year-round. And once you’ve finished marveling at our natural beauty, you can enjoy a delicious dose of down-home cooking.
