To hear the slow rhythms of the delta blues flooding out of every bar and to breathe in the wood smoke of a barbecue joint is to truly experience the Deep South. And you can satisfy your yearning for these comforts on the streets and at one of our hotels in Jonesboro, AR. As the largest city in the Arkansas Delta, its setting amid the rolling hills of Crowley's Ridge promises an unmatched perspective over the flat, fertile fields of cotton and rice whose image defines so much of your delta dreams. Mopping your brow within minutes of stepping outside Jonesboro hotels, and gazing over the mighty Mississippi River that is the lifeblood of the land, you'll be certain that this is the real deal…the muggy, bluesy, deepest of the Deep South.
Uncover the treasures of the local landscape along the trails of Crowley's Ridge Nature Center, which pass through prairies and woodlands, alongside willow ponds, and over the flooded labyrinth of a bottomland forest. Such diversity might take you by surprise, but ascend the observation tower and behold a panorama over the dramatic convergence of the ridge with the delta plains that stretch to the horizon. Admire these river-flooded fields, even from far above, and hear in your mind the minimalist chords and woeful melodies of the blues that have their birthplace in that sodden soil. Pick up one of our Jonesboro rental cars and head to Memphis, a city that shares its musical heritage with the region you'll leave in your wake. The song of the South plays on every street and in every monument, its rock 'n' roll iteration strumming loudest at Graceland, overseen by the spirit of the King. It's the soundtrack to your wanderings, and the lullaby that sends you off to sleep at one of our Memphis hotels.
