yes, it's only 50 mph - but find a nice season (spring bloom or fall colors), roll down the window and take a scenic drive. Relaxing, care freeing, and so beautiful through the south. Dogwoods and Redbuds bloom in early spring and on the northern end the fall transformation is beautiful. Stop in Tupelo to eat, stop at the Civil... More

We drove the entire Trace from Nashville, TN to Natchez MS. It is 440 miles or so of pleasant scenic driving. The speed limit is 50 so you drive at a leisurely pace. We encountered coyotes, deer, and wild turkeys along the route. A most relaxing drive.

We only did a tiny bit of this Parkway - from Nashville. We straightaway found an amazing lake to swim in and beautiful pathways etc. Next time we will do a lot more - wish this was closer to NZ!

while driving through Natchez Trace you can see a lot of wild animals on the side of the road which seem to have no fear from cars...

My favorite way to ride the Parkway is on a Harley. It is such a scenic ride. The north end and the south end are Very different and great in their on way. The Northern end is probably a little more scenic with the rolling hills and that huge bridge before you get into Nashville. The Southern end is more... More

If you are traveling to Nashville from points to the southwest, and are not in a hurry - use this road!. In December, it is not as pretty as in the Spring (when we have done it) - but it is such a lovely, unhurried drive with little traffic and no trucks. However, it does take longer due to the...

What a nice change of pace. We didn't miss billboards and traffic at all. We enjoyed a super fun night in Nashville and drove south. We stopped at waterfalls, burial mounds and swamps. We even saw three bald eagles flying above the trail in Tennessee.

Take it slow and easy and stop at all of the visitor centers along the way. Pull off and look at the changing leaves and wildlife. Decompress!

I love driving on this, but also got off on the backroads & drove before getting back on the parkway, lots of little out of the way places off exits

The Natchez Trace begins in Nashville and goes to Tupelo. Great scenic drive that is intersting and gorgeous during the fall season of the year when the leaves have turned colors.
