We started in Natchez & took the trail all the way to Nashville, enjoying the beautiful, peaceful drive. We stopped at many of the markers, but by far, my favorite was near Florence. If you stop at the National Park information office in Tupelo (they have a great film about the parkway), the guide will give you a pamphlet about... More

A beautiful road trip on our motorcycle. Tons of historical stuff to see. My suggestion would be to travel in the spring when everything is blooming or in the fall when the leaves are changing, it would really be nice then!

Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Stop at the NPS Visitor Center in Tupelo and get a map with information about the parkway and sites to see along the way. Keep in mind the speed isn't 65mph, the law enforcement rangers will pull you over for excessive speed, and there aren't as many... More

We rode the parkway northbound from Tupelo and we really enjoy the ride. It is very nice especially on motorcycle as there is very little traffic even mid August!! Unfortunately things turned sour on MP360 when I got a flat tire. Luckily there was (poor) cellphone signal so I was able to call my roadside assistance. But because commercial vehicles... More

In the spring, wild flowers are beautiful and in the fall, the beautiful leaves are a sight to see! There are interesting places to stop along the way to gain knowledge of the Trace and the Indians that traveled it. There are rest stops but not that many. Slower paced travel but no 18-wheelers.

It is well worth going 50 mph to experience the beautiful scenery and quiet ride from Nashville,Tn. to Natchez, Ms. It is both a good experience in a car ,or on a motorcycle. The gentle rolling hills and trees are beautiful in any season. The hustle and bussell of cities and town are left behind for a little while. But... More

We drove the Natchez Trace Parkway from Clinton Mi to Nashville Tn and it was a very nice way to see a part of the country that we seldom see. No trucks, very little traffic, no billboards or junkyards and lots of historic things along the way. Take time to hike along the trails that border the parkway and look... More

We only drove a short bit of this looooong road but it was worth the detour to see a much prettier side of Mississippi than you get from the freeways and larger state roads. We also went a step further and went for a bit of an explore down some of the side routes branching off from the Parkway: Point... More

Used the Parkway for part of the drive from Nashville to Tupelo and it was beautiful! Takes a bit longer then using the freeways, but it was so green and peaceful, making it totally worth it. It is a two lane highway with nothing on the side of the roads but lush, green vegetation. Didn't have to worry about traffic... More

I often travel across the United States, primarily by motorcycle, and the Natchez Trace Parkway is one of the best in the country. It crosses three states and offers a variety of history and scenic views that are seldom matched - anywhere! It is slow and laid back, peaceful, and very historic. One of the best parts is the price... More
