“New Year, New You” is a popular phrase as we get ready to move into a new year, but as we head into a new decade, a Greenwood getaway can give you the fresh and relaxing beginning to give you a clear and rejuvenated mind heading into the year 2020. Whether you are in search of a romantic steak dinner, unique activities with your significant other or a day at the spa, this Delta river town has everything possible to help you relax and shed your cares.
Your first step in planning for your romantic escape is picking a place to stay, but this trip you may be looking for something a bit different from your usual choices. You want a charming and elegant option where you can be pampered with amenities or sleep in late with luxurious beds. In Greenwood, look no further than the Alluvian Hotel located in historic downtown. Upgrade to one of the spacious suites to enjoy marble bathrooms, whirlpool baths and a view of the intimate old-world courtyard. You also have your choice of multiple hotels around town to suit your wants and needs.
If it’s a true delta experience you are looking for, take a trip back in time with a stay at Tallahatchie Flats, where six old-time farmhouses on the banks of the Tallahatchie River reside on a Delta cotton plantation. It’s perfect if you are seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world, with the silence and sounds of nature providing an extraordinarily relaxing experience.
In Greenwood, you are always within steps of any culinary craving you may have, which brings us to the second step in your researching for your trip: food! Giardina’s restaurant, famous for its steaks and seafood, is a Delta landmark in the lobby of the Alluvian, or roam down the streets of downtown to find other unique eateries. The ever-changing menu at Fan and Johnny’s is led by a James Beard Best Chef South semifinalist, and don’t forget about dessert by testing out the best pie in Mississippi by People Magazine at The Crystal Grill. If you leave Greenwood hungry, that is completely on you!
You know where you’re staying and what there is to eat, but what other activities can you do while you’re in Greenwood? For step three of the planning process, we have you covered there, too. All of the walking around in Greenwood gives you the perfect opportunity to book a day at the Alluvian Spa, which offers everything from a quick, relaxing massage to a full-body makeover by the professionals at Mississippi’s most sought-out retreat. Just across historic Howard Street, the Viking Cooking School is a fun experience to pick up the tricks of the trade from expert instructors and notable chefs in a complete Viking kitchen. Enjoy hands-on lessons about anything from pizza to a menu inspired by “The Help,” which was filmed in Greenwood. We also didn’t mention the shopping opportunities in downtown Greenwood or the plethora of outdoor activities whenever the weather heats up.
Greenwood has everything you are looking for in your next romantic getaway, and it offers. There’s no better way to ease into the next decade than a unique Delta experience, filled with gourmet food, luxury amenities and special activities. Come to Greenwood, and let us take you into the new year.
