James Ceranti Nissan is proud to serve Indianola, MS, home of B.B. King and the Mississippi Blues. All year round, Indianola attracts blues enthusiasts who travel the globe to experience the music’s history, and there’s no better place to do it than this small Mississippi Delta town.
By far the most popular attractions in Indianola are the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center, which is a $15+ million state-of-the-art facility that honors the history of blues music and its cultural importance in the area. In addition to featuring numerous videos, artifacts, and interactive exhibits that tell the story of King’s life, it also includes two blues venues that host the very best of local and regional blues, country, rock, and hip-hop acts: the nationally-acclaimed 308 Blues Club and Café and historic Club Ebony. But when you’re in Indianola, you don’t have to just learn about B.B. King—you can see him perform live when he returns every year and performs for free at the B.B. King Homecoming Festival.
Given the influence of blues in Indianola, it’s no surprise that the food and community are just as wonderfully vibrant. For tourists, Bed on the Bayou provides an authentic experience of staying in a renovated tenant house straight off the plantation, while The Crown Restaurant in historic downtown is a dining delight that anyone can enjoy regardless of musical taste or origin. Then there’s the Blue Biscuit Bungalows, which offer a perfect blend of blues authenticity, history, cozy comfort, and local food.
Needless to say, if you like blues, you’ve got to stop by Indianola, MS! Make sure you take a look at all of our great info about the Greenville, MS area as well. We're excited to have you visit the area!
