Iuka is a quite a small town where nothing really happens. Everyone knows just about everyone. If you shop in the local grocery store, you are bound to run into old pals. Most of everyone is super friendly and they will go to extreme measures to make you feel at home. The citizens of Iuka love church, family, and sweet tea!

If you are interested in aprons it has just the museum for you! It's the only apron museum it the USA.. It has a few other small museums and attractions. Besides that there isn't much to do, the streets roll up by 10 pm. If you want someplace with a good nightlife I would definitely consider another destination.
Iuka is a small, very family-friendly town in the top northeast corner of Mississippi. Two state parks lie within a few miles of Iuka, as well as marinas, boat docks, and fishing and camping opportunites. We have annual visitors from out of state who come to enjoy these offerings.
