Literally, the intersection- but a nice spot for a picture. Understand that the legendary crossroads are in four separate locations counting where they filmed the movie, but this is the best picture!

Yep it’s actually THE crossroads- if you understand that then there’s nothing more to say. If you don’t then it’s just another intersection.

I came across this by chance when driving out of town. It’s a busy crossroad with nowhere to pull over in the car and not really pedestrian friendly. The sign itself is pretty cool, so if you can get to it it’s worth a quick...More

Nice tourist attraction but only if you are in the area. Just a monument with 2 guitars & road markers. Nothing beyond that.

Although there’s not much to see it’s the thrill of being at the crossroads and the history attached it. If you are nearby it’s worth stopping for a photo.

It was cool to finally stop here, but ended up being a disappointment. Nothing special at all. At least I can say Ive been here now. I'll come back for the live music and museums, but this is one thing a person can skip in...More

For something that has been hyped so much, the state of Mississippi has not seen fit to put up a marker, nor do the local folks seem to care all that much. If it were not for the movie, "Oh Brother Where Art Thou," I...More

Not the stuff of legends and folklore; we all know the story about Robert Johnson but this intersection doesn't meet those expectations.

I admit I’m a little disappointed in this photo op. It’s in the middle of Clarksdale, at a busy intersection. I actually drove right past it initially and had to double back for me to realize it was just a pole with guitars. In my...More
