Fall in love all over again in Tunica, Mississippi. Whether you’re looking ahead to an upcoming anniversary or rekindling the romance, a well-planned getaway to Tunica, MS, can be just the thing you and your special someone need to rest, recharge and connect. Break out of your usual routine and plan a weekend getaway or destination vacation in an area that has you covered with historical hot spots, restaurants, and entertainment, as well as the sweet Southern hospitality that can make your stay even more enjoyable. Here, Tunica Convention & Visitors Bureau and Gateway to the Blues Museum and Visitors Center take a closer look at things to do in Tunica that couples will love.
Before packing up to go, book a reservation at one of the luxury Tunica resorts and casinos. While you might be busy creating unforgettable memories during the day, you’ll need a relaxing spot to unwind afterward. Recharge at a place like Hollywood Casino & Hotel Tunica in a luxury suite with enticing amenities, or check into Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall, Tunica where you can stay close to the action.
If you prefer a room with a view, opt for a spot like Fitz Tunica Casino & Hotel that overlooks the Mississippi River. Treat your taste buds to the in-house dining options that range from casual cuisine to more elegant eats.
If quaint, quiet quarters are more your style, peruse lodging options that are just enough out of the way that you can experience all the area has to offer but still enjoy some solitude. Pack up and make a road trip out of your journey, making a local RV park your home away from home, or check out non-casino hotels that can make your stay more personal. With scenic views and plenty of room to relax in the peace and quiet, you and your partner can truly disconnect from your busy schedules and unwind.
From sampling local cuisine to antiquing, there are plenty of romantic things to do in Tunica. The downtown area is close to the casinos, where much of the entertainment lives, and offers historical charm with plenty of boutiques, antique shops, and seasonal festivals. For a chance to get out in nature, check out Tunica’s RiverPark EcoTrail, which offers 3.1 miles of the Delta National Forest for bikers, hikers, runners, and pet parents alike.
You can also set your romantic getaway apart with our local musical attractions. If you’re a pair of Blues lovers, put our Gateway to the Blues Visitors Center and Museum tour at the top of your list. A must-see for many visitors, this museum tells the story of how the Blues was born and how Tunica ties into the genre. Then, explore the Mississippi Blues Trail. With over 100 historical markers, this time-honored trail lets you dive into the history of this soulful style.
