Hi there, we will be staying in Clarksdale from Apr 10-17 and would like to take the train to New Orleans and stay a week there before flying home. How long does it take to go by train and approx how much? Thanks

How are you getting to Clarksdale? I really think you'll want a car, especially being there for a whole week. Also, the closest train station is in Greenwood, MS. From Greenwood MS, $50US per person, ~6 hours:

Here's the Amtrak site: www.amtrak.com/south-train-bus-stations

Al-the squid...Thanks for the info on amtrak. We will be flying into Memphis. We have friends in Clarksdale who will pick us up there. We will be staying with them for a week and taking the train to NOLA. they will drive down and meet us a day later. We will be staying a week there and flying back to Buffalo from there.
