The Natchez Trace is beautiful and very well kept. I have been as far south as Port Gibson and as far north as Tupelo. There is plenty to see along the way and all sorts of cool little towns and historical stops. Makes a great weekend trip.

The Trace is almost like stepping back in time. So far we have gone from Nashville to Tupelo. So little traffic and beautiful scenery - fun watching all the little yellow butterflies. Have seen lots of turkeys and deer. It is easy to jump off and on to see overlooks, etc. and also to get gas or lunch. Nothing commercial... More

Driving the Natchez Trace is a nice driving experience. It's a beautiful relaxing drive without commercial vehicles. I've driven it many times from short distances and the whole length. The scenery has great variety. One thing to note is the speed limit is 50 and the rangers will expect you to obey that.

The Trace is always a peaceful ride for us!!! I like not having the Big 18 wheelers blowing me off the road!

We traveled over 200 miles of the northern end of the Natchez-Trace Parkway and enjoyed every mile. It so peaceful and full of history. Don't miss this!

If you like history combined with a beautiful parkway this is the place to go. This parkway runs very close to the original Trace. In places you can actually walk where the "Kaintucks" walked on their way back home. In the time before steamship travel they would float their flat boats full of their commerce down the Mississippi River from... More

This is a wonderful national park. The two lane road and 50 mph maximum speed make for an enjoyable drive. The opportunity to see historical native American areas and enjoy nature. We visited a couple of welcome centers along the way too.

What a delightful drive! Calm and lovely and never crowded. A truly unexpected luxury. It was shady and beautifully canopied.
