Depending on your definition of "cute," I think Clarksdale, MS, would be worth a stop. Located in the midst of the Mississippi Delta's vast alluvial floodplain, Clarksdale is the famous home of the blues and a host of legends including Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker. Get some BBQ at Abe's and find yourself a juke joint to soak in the ambience.Ground Zero Blues Club is owned by actor Morgan Freeman and has live shows throughout the week. You should also check out the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. Now, of course, candidates for cutest town on the Mississippi stretch from Minnesota through Louisiana. One of the best travel guides to experience the full stretch of the "Great River Road" is Jamie Jensen's excellent "Road Trip USA." In fact, the website for the book includes some very helpful general info, maps, and state-by-state highlights. Definitely worth a look! http://www.roadtripusa.com/routes/greatriver/greatriver.html

Natchez, Mississippi, is a very cute town best known for its beautiful antebellum homes. It's also home to the start of the Natchez Trace Parkway, a 400-plus-mile scenic drive from there to Nashville, Tennessee. It has cute shops and restaurants, plus options for outdoors recreation. Natchez is also part of the famous Blues Trail, so good music abounds here (as do good tamales...strange, I know, but the Blues Trail is known for having equally good homemade tamales along the way).
