The state that carries the name of America's most famous river is a bastion of Deep South hospitality, history, and music (Delta blues ring a bell?), with casinos (Biloxi, Tunica) and some great Gulf Shore beaches, to boot!

On a brand-new report and video at The World on Wheels, we're on the Elvis Trail and we're starting where it all started, his hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi.

Here's an interesting cultural development: The new digs for the Smithsonian-affiliated Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art is finally opening tomorrow in Biloxi, Mississippi, with a design by Frank Gehry. OK, by now Gehry's done his schtick even my dinky hometown in upstate NY, but nonetheless should add a little more heft/depth to the area's touristic offerings.

Mississippi coast update:

• The state government, in conjunction with local officials, has closed the sand beach in Hancock County from Nicholson Avenue, west to the Silver Slipper Casino. The beaches are closed to public use until further notice. Security to ensure non-essential personnel stay off the beach is being provided by local law enforcement.
• The beach advisories for Jackson and Harrison counties remain in effect. The following areas had significant amounts tar mats and tar patties on the shoreline:

o Harrison County: from Third Avenue in Pass Christian to Azalea Avenue in Biloxi.
o Jackson County: Main Street in the Belle Fountain area west to Seashore Avenue.
o The public is asked to avoid contact with oil-related materials and stay out of the water if these materials are visible.
