Hello!
I have never been to mississippi to visit. I am trying to gather some information. I found your post to be helpful and current. I was wondering if you could tell me what you do as far as car rental? Do you rent it thur-Mon? Thank you in advance for any information you are able to give me.

I fly in on Thursday and fly out on Monday, from Memphis airport. I can recommend staying in Tunica at Bally's Hotel 1-800-382-2559. This is a small simple motel about 1/8 mile from the Bally's casino in Tunica, owned by them but not attached. There is a shuttle running back and forth between the little hotel and the casino continually. It is very simple and not fancy. The best part is that Sunday through Thursday it is only $19.99 per night! I have stayed there several times now travelling alone and can share that it is safe, clean, and friendly. There is a frig, no micro. I stay there my first night in and my last night out.

Also, this time I was finally able to get into Comfort Inn in Clarksdale which has been full when I tried before. This was an excellent hotel, but like all lodgings which are decent in Clarksdale, steep for me at 99.95 per night.

But, I stayed two nights, Thursday and Sunday, at 19.99 and two nights,Friday and Saturday, at 99.99 and it averaged out a whole lot better.

One more thing. If you stay in the Bally's, be sure and go next door and register for one of their player cards in the casino. They will send you marketing material in the mail and I got a wonderful free buffet dinner both nights this stay.

Not sure if you got the info, but you're man has to go to the Caplan and get the marriage packet. They only perform marriages in March and September in tccf.

I've been out there a few times and there is a new hotel the Hampton inn in Clarksdale. It's pricey but really nice and super safe. I'm going back jan 16, 17, 18 if anyone would want to car pool or even after visiting have dinner. I hate it out there it makes me sad and going by myself is hard after the visits being alone in a unfamiliar state. I'm traveling from sacramento to Memphis and I'm leaving Thursday jan 15th leaving Jan 18th..Happy Holidays

It does take forever if you are by yourself.it took me 3 days to get here from california. But alot of ladies get together on here and make the drive. Which I think is a great idea. Saves money, and new friends, that understand what your going through cuz they're going through it as well.

lol I'm fortunate to have a really good job. My tickets usually are about $400-$500.. The whole trip usually is about $1200.. It's a lot but my dude is my life.. I just wish he was back in Cali. This out of state shit is rough.. It honestly is torture for inmates loved ones.. And mentally not good for the inmates they begin to forget the reality of family and real life. It's sad.. Did you move to Mississippi?

Your very lucky, if I could afford I would do that also. No I didn't move to Mississippi, my first visit was on thanksgiving. It was hard leaving him, everyday I wish I could go back. But your are absolutely right about the out of state shit. My Man has been there for four years and I was he first visit. My plan is to go back in March, I can't wait I'm counting down the days until then. But I'm also hoping that when he goes to committee then send him back to cali!

So i am approved for visit woot woot after waiting a long time, I called the CDC out of bed units in RAncho Cordova, and they told me i was approved. So than i called Mrs Cruz to make appointment and i wasn't approved on her list, but she went ahead and honored it and she was going to fix it for me. So it is official March 20 , 21 & 22 i will see my viejo. I booked my flights with Delta from LAX (non-Stop) for $377.70. and car rental, so if anyone else is planning a visit that same weekend, and is willing to share hotel and rental car cost, Hola!!!
