This was a fascinating town with rich history. We loved it. Check out Rev's CountryTours for an incredible adventure. The Rev took us places we never would have found and we learned so much from his well prepared and so comfortable tour. Worth every penny!

Rodney is an abandoned town on the Mississippi that is worth a visit. A little difficult to get to as most roads are no longer paved heading there - a small compact car may have trouble if the weather is raining. The town is interesting...More

Two churches that were vibrant and life-giving at one time are now disintegrating. A beautiful, but somewhat isolated location. I didn't see much else of the town except the churches. Sad to see these churches deteriorate.

We carefully printed out directions and loaded up the GPS in advance. We still got lost. Halfway there, my husband mentioned we were low on gas. So follow the GPS carefully and get a full tank before heading out there. It was a little scary,...More

This place has a very interesting part of American history and is worth the drive to find, explore and learn. Be sure to also visit the nearby Windsor Ruins.

This place was very nice. It was hard to get to. The roads aren't in the best shape. It is beautiful, but was partially flooded when we went. We saw an alligator in the flood waters, which added to the fun of the trip. Cell...More

This is it, this is travel. Why leave home to look for other things farter away? Because we all have a longing to find that comfort place we can hold in our heart. Not in our mind, mind you, facts are forgotten. A place in...More
