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.

Great drive and a good shortcut around Tupelo. Looking forward to driving on it in the springtime. Hope to make a return visit this coming Spring.

I drove the parkway on 11/22/2014. I started in Nashville and only drove about a 1/3 of the parkway before getting off and heading to Florence, AL. I stopped at about mile marker 424 (Tennessee Divide Trailhead) and made about a 4.5 mile hike to Garrison Creek Trailhead. The hike was a lot of fun and relaxing. The trail was... More

Really enjoyed our trip along the Parkway. Starting in Natchez and driving the full length, including a detour at Tupelo to Memphis to visit "The Kings" house took us five days at a relaxed pace. There were very few other cars about and plenty of places to stop for comfort breaks or to learn something about the history of the... More

The Trace was a significant route for commerce in the early days of the new nation. Start in Natchez and look at plantation houses on your way. The Trace is a two lane scenic highway that may be slower than the highway but worth the pace. The Trace passes Jackson, Tupelo, and ends at Nashville. Along the way you pass... More
