It’s appropriate because both the river and the highway have, for ages, represented a journey toward great things.
But that journey is just one of the many things that makes Tunica a “Good Place to Live.”
Today, Tunica, Mississippi is a vibrant and charming delta community where Main Street bustles with shoppers treasure hunting in an array of boutique shops, antique stores and more.
When it’s time to take a break from shopping, there’s fewer scenic places to relax than Veteran’s Park. Here, flags proudly fly to honor our nation’s military and plaques offer tribute to those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.
