The Belzoni-Humphreys County area is within overnight delivery of the Middle South Market that encompasses over 55 million people and 76 metropolitan areas.  This area has been determined to be one of the fastest growing areas in the United States in the next 20 years.

Regional Ports of Greenville and Vicksburg, Mississippi, link you with an inland navigation system that connects you with the heart of the United States and the world's largest port, the Port of South Louisiana (Baton Rouge-New Orleans).  See Ports and Rail Map

Humphreys County is intersected by an excellent highway system, including four-lane U. S. Highway 49, and Mississippi State Highways 7, 12, 14, and 16.  This highway system provides quick connection with Interstates 20 and 55 and Highway 61.

Commercial airline service is available at the Jackson International Airport and Mid-Delta Regional Airport. 

The Jackson Mississippi Airport is approximately 75 miles from Belzoni. The Jackson-Evers International Airport provides excellent facilities and services for private and corporate pilots, both transient and home-based.
