There's No Place Like Home
Welcome to Clarksdale and Coahoma County, where in today's world of accelerated living, we work hard to retain our small town charm. We believe that it's good to enjoy life at a slightly slower pace, and with today's amazing communication options, about the only things we give up are higher prices and traffic congestion. With Memphis only an hour away, myriad pleasures of a major metropolitan area are right at our doorstep. And when you add in the world-class entertainment regularly presented by dozens of major casinos located just minutes away, we truly have it all.
Local parks provide excellent facilities from playgrounds to lighted tennis courts, as well as fields for softball, baseball and soccer. A broad range of organized recreational programs are offered yearly.
Plenty of Youth Activities
Because of our mild winters, this area offers an abundance of outdoor recreational activities from hunting and fishing to boating and camping. Temperatures in this area range from an average of 41 degrees Fahrenheit in January to 83 degrees Fahrenheit in July. Normal rainfall averages about 52 inches per year with 2 - 3 inches of snow.
