Treat your group with a trip to Greenwood, Mississippi!
Greenwood has earned a well-deserved reputation as wonderful and accessible getaway spot. Located in the heart of the culturally rich Delta region, it offers a perfect combination of relaxation and stimulating history. You won’t be here long before you find yourself slowing down and settling into the rhythm of a place where good music, good food and good company are celebrated. Take your time and savor the pace; carry a cup of steaming coffee to the Keesler Bridge and watch the sunrise over the Yazoo’s dark waters. Stroll the brick streets and soak in the gracious old buildings and the welcoming stores. Grab a bite at Delta Bistro or Turnrow Cafe, do a bit of shopping or take a Viking cooking class before your Alluvian Spa treatment. That’s just the ticket to ease you into an elegant evening at Lusco’s or Giardina’s. Relax with a nightcap in the lobby of The Alluvian hotel or head out across the Delta for a taste of deep down Blues.
If you leave Greenwood hungry, you have only yourself to blame. Delta Bistro’s chef snagged a James Beard Award nomination, and the Ballas family has been rolling comfort food and world-famous pies out of the Crystal Grill’s kitchen for three-quarters of a century. Giardina’s and Lusco’s feature upscale evening dining choices that range from pompano to porterhouse and Jeem’s Diner boasts the best burger in the Delta. Turnrow Books’ upstairs cafe is the place to go for lunchtime soups, salads and sandwiches, and Webster’s is a cozy spot just across the Keesler Bridge in North Greenwood. Other culinary temptations range from Serio’s open-face meatball sandwich to Steven’s barbecue and famous chocolate cake. If your tastes run to local wines, check out The Winery at Williams Landing, located in Greenwood’s restored Fire Station #1 at the south end of Howard Street. And if you’re inspired to try your own hand at kitchen magic, sign up for one of the Viking Cooking School’s classes, where you can become the master of your grill or the pastry chef of your neighborhood!
