Come to Clarksdale and settle in for a few days. And when you do, be sure to stay at the Lofts at the Five and Dime. The lofts are located on the top floor of a converted Woolworth's building and feature high ceilings and plenty of light. Each loft has a kitchen, so you can cook for yourself, but the town's coffee shop, just downstairs from the lofts, was such a friendly place that we spent our mornings there. And although we're not really t.v. people, we took advantage of it to watch a few of the dvd's provided - such as "M for Mississippi" - a locally produced documentary about the blues that was a great foundation for our visit.
