Pearl River Resort
Deep in the heart of
Delta Blues country,
70 miles northeast of
Jackson, Pearl River Resort garnered Silver Medal honors in our 2008 Premier Resorts ranking, but it sets the
gold standard for value. Winter
rates here start at just $89 a night.
Pearl River is notable for its
flexibility. There are five properties
to choose from: Silver Star Hotel
& Casino, Golden Moon Hotel
& Casino, Dancing Rabbit Golf Club, the family-friendly Geyser
Falls Water Theme Park, and
the new Hilton Garden Inn. Two
new restaurants spice the dining
options: MIKO and Remo’s.
Scheduled for 2009 is the Ground
Zero Blues Club, a joint venture
with actor Morgan Freeman. Toss
in casino gaming, a state-of-the-art
spa at Silver Star and top-name
entertainment, and you’ve got a
slice of Vegas, Dixie-style.
What elevates Pearl River for
golfers is its affiliation with
Dancing Rabbit Golf Club’s Tom
Fazio/Jerry Pate courses, the
Azaleas and the Oaks. If you’re
here more for the golf than the
casino nightlife of the main resort,
you don’t even have to leave — Dancing Rabbit’s clubhouse
features eight quiet bedrooms.
Rooms from $89 per night.
