1 – Harlow’s Casino Resort & Spa
Harlow’s Casino Resort & Spa is the larger of the two casinos in Greenville. If you’re searching for a place to frequent overnight, the hotel at Harlow’s makes for a decent option. But it also has a greater selection of gaming than the Caesars-operated Trop Casino Greenville.

They also have more than a fair share of property amenities. You’ll find a spa, fitness center, resort pool, convenience pantry, and more.
If you’re looking to add to your gaming repertoire while in the area, check out Harlow’s Casino. You will find it at 4280 Harlows Road.
2 – Belmont Plantation
Yes, this is one of a few cool historic sites and architectural wonders here in Greenville. Established in 1857, you’re looking at the last of the antebellum mansions located along the Mississippi Delta.
And with over 9,000 square feet of real estate, you have a lot to explore when you’re looking to break from Trop Casino Greenville. And best yet, they’ve restored both the home itself and the surrounding grounds, which upon stepping across the threshold, will make you think they transported you to the 19th century.
But you can do more than just tour the grounds and the home when you stop here. They hold many events throughout the calendar year. So, make sure you stick around and see what’s going on if you decide to come out and discover what life was like during America’s antebellum period.
You will find the property at 3498 Mississippi 1 South in Greenville, and you can expect to take between one and two hours from your day to tour the grounds.
3 – Mississippi Delta
Looking for a bit of everything that the Mississippi nature scene offers?
Check out the Mississippi Delta, which spans from Tunica to Clarksdale, Cleveland, Greenville, Indianola, Greenwood, and Yazoo County. Clearly, you’ll be sticking around Greenville unless you have a thirst for adventure and decide to venture into other regions along the Delta.
The Delta is an ideal spot for you if you’re looking for vegetation, swamplands, and animal life native to the region. However, when you venture into Greenville and other places along the Delta, you’ll also find sound entertainment options, retail outlets, and more, some we’ll discuss in subsequent sections.
For the purposes of this section, we’re talking more about the scenic drive in which you can embark if you’re looking to take an extended time away from the casino.
If you decide to not take that drive and instead remain local, check out the following sections that will discuss more must-visit attractions within Greenville’s portion of the Delta.
4 – Greenville Cypress Preserve
Greenville Cypress Preserve is yet another ideal place to frequent near Trop Casino Greenville if you’re looking to further indulge yourself in the region’s scenery.
Head over to 630 Cypress Lane in Greenville where you will find stunning views of the sunset between the trees, vast swamplands, and nature trails.
Some reviewers on TripAdvisor have stated that they enjoy hiking through the preserve in solitary, given the meditative feeling that overcomes them while they walk through the cypress trees. And given the short length of many of these trails, you don’t need to worry about getting lost during those hikes.
You’ll also find an eclectic garden of wildflowers flanking the boardwalk during your trip into the preserve.
This is a small but powerful way to spend some alone time when you need to get away from the casino floor for a while. It will take no longer than one hour to venture through the trees, so it’s also a great place to visit when you’re looking for a rather quick outing.
5 – Winterville Mounds
Head out to 2415 Highway 1 N in Greenville and check out this sensational history lesson. The tallest mound at the Winterville site stands at over 50 feet tall, and they’re estimated to have been built between 1200 and 1250, so their age predates that of Colonial America by a few centuries.
They also have a small museum at the site, which teaches you about the mounds, the purpose behind them, and the families who lived at the site during the peak period of the Mississippian Culture, which thrived between 1000 and 1450.
6 – 1927 Flood Museum
Until Hurricane Katrina, the 1927 Flood was perhaps the most devastating natural disaster in the region. You’ll find the museum at 118 South Hinds Street in Greenville, and they have housed the museum in the town’s oldest structure.
As the story goes, on April 21st, 1927, a levee located 8 miles north of Greenville ruptured due to increased water pressure to create the largest single crevasse the river had ever seen.
Here, you’ll find artifacts that survived the flood, along with photographs that recorded the devastation that left Greenville underwater for 4 months. You’ll also find a 12-minute video at the site which narrates the story and provides a chilling picture of just how brutal the forces of nature can be.
Overall, expect to spend a couple of hours here, which makes it a great place to visit when you’re looking to spend an entire afternoon in town or if you’d just like to take an entire day off from Trop Casino Greenville to go exploring.
And speaking of exploration, let’s look at another hot museum in the area.
7 – Greenville History Museum
Yet another place to spend between one and two hours, it’s a great place to visit when you’re looking to learn a little about the area’s local history. Find it at 409 Washington Avenue in Greenville, and it will take you on a tour all the way back to Greenville’s formative days.
If you’re a visual learner, you will love this museum even more, given the sensational collection of pictures they have from the late 19th and 20th centuries, including a popular photo of Bonnie and Clyde’s old Ford, along with a letter written by Clyde to Ford.
It’s a great, quick stop that will suit visitors of all ages and interest levels. Feel free to come on out for a history lesson and prepare to be mind-boggled by some of the fascinating antique collections this small museum boasts.
