Clarksdale, MS

Rand McNally, America's largest map company, just put the Delta Blues Museum on the map - literally. The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale is highlighted as a "can't miss" stop in Rand McNally's new Southeast Getaway Guide. The guide blends travel information and recommended stops with maps designed to help vacationers find their way to the destinations featured in the guide.

"We wanted to unearth the best-kept secrets in each state - things that they might not discover on their own," says Rand McNally Editorial Director Laurie Borman. "As more people grow up in one place and move another, they might not know the area right around them. This book is a great resource for locals to explore their state, too."

The Delta Blues Museum is just one of the exceptional destinations suggested in the guide, which takes an in-depth look at restaurants, lodging and one-of-a-kind attractions in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Research shows that more and more Americans are choosing to take their vacations close to home and explore the areas where they live," says Robert Apatoff, president and chief executive officer of Rand McNally. "You might live in an area for years before discovering all it has to offer. We designed this guide for Southeasterners who want to find the local treasures hidden in their own backyards.

"We are delighted to be recognized in the Southeast Getaway Guide," said Shelley Ritter, Director of the Delta Blues Museum. "Rand McNally is the established name in maps and travel guides. It's wonderful to know that people who travel in Mississippi will not only know about us, but will be able to see us right on the map."
