If it weren't for the weather I might have thought I was driving down the Wye Valley. Green, leafy, pleasant, with well-signposted overlooks and features of (relative) interest. The road is well-maintained, was pretty much free of traffic when we went and the verges had been recently manicured.

A simple place with a few statues of the famous, especially Elvis, his hometown and starting place in life. Great city hall and gardens

The Natchez Trace is a beautiful National Park featuring a road that runs from Tennessee to Mississippi. The speed limit is 50 mph and is strictly enforced. (you can get away with 54-55 mph but not much more) There is no commercial traffic allowed and the Trace is generally lightly traveled during the week. Be aware that there are limited... More

My husband and i took two days driving the trace from Nashville toward Tupelo. We enjoyed the falls and hiking on many trails. We took a picnic, and enjoyed the wonderful scenic views. I would love to do this every year. I cant say enough about the trace, if you like peace and quite, Because our phones did not pick... More

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
