Tunica County Chamber of Commerce
Tunica County is an evolving area, often known as ‘The South’s Casino Capital’. Located at the top of the Mississippi Delta and within the Memphis, Tennessee Metropolitan Area, the county of Tunica is filled with Southern charm and hospitality with easy access to one of the top-rated zoos in America, the world-renowned Beale Street, Graceland (the 2nd most visited house in America after the White House) and so much more.
Deeply rooted around agricultural beginnings, the county has evolved over the years and is now home to the second tallest building and largest aquatic center in the state of Mississippi that complement the six Las Vegas-style casinos that call Tunica County home.
