We were looking for the feeling of the crossroad we got from the movie but this is nothing like it. The crossed blue guitars are on a busy, maybe the busiest, crossroad in Clarksdale. Not even the exact point either, very disappointing

We were a large group of motorcycle riders...and I think almost all of us went to the Crossroads to take a picture. What a great time we had on this trip. Clarksdale is a must do while in the South!

Set in the middle of a major road junction, 49 and 61, it is well kept but great for a photo opportunity. Just don't get run over!!

Lots of parking spots close by. Sign sticks right up ...just there and cool! Not far from downtown Clarksdale and eateries.

The Crossroads is in the middle of a busy intersection and hangs in the sky from a pole. You have to drive by it because it is too dangerous and high up for any other photo opportunity. If you do anything in Clarksdale you will pass this sign several times. Rumor has it the real crossroads from the Robert Johnson story is on the other side of town at a T junction but there is just a large field there and no sign of course.
