Step away from the city and into the quiet haven of Grenada, Mississippi. Nestled among the trees of Mississippi’s Grenada County, Grenada is home to just over 13,000 people and sits halfway between Memphis, Tennessee, and Jackson, Mississippi, making the small town the perfect place to experience both the natural beauty of the state and Grenada’s two larger neighbors.
Visitors love Grenada’s laidback lifestyle. In Grenada, you can play checkers in the town square or enjoy a glass of sweet tea under towering old oak trees before dipping your toes in Grenada Lake and enjoying some southern barbecue for dinner.
And, while you’re in the downtown town square, be sure to check out the plaque commemorating Grenada’s role in the Mississippi Delta Blues Trail. Despite its small size, Grenada had a major impact on blues music in the American south. Grenada is the former home of legendary Mississippi bluesman John Hurt, Lewis Johnson, Little Will, Wade Allen, the Stickland brothers, James Willis, Frank Rimmer, Walter “Son Baby” Herron, Willie Kincaide and Don “Tiny” Kincaide, while many more bands played at juke joints along Union Street.
When the big city calls your name, head north to Memphis, Tennessee to pay your respects to Elvis at Graceland or head south to Mississippi’s capital in Jackson for some of the country’s best barbecue.
When you fly to a jet charter airport in Grenada, Mississippi, you’ll arrive at the Grenada Municipal Airport. Situated just three miles north of the central business district, Grenada Municipal is the perfect launching point for your Mississippi adventure.
