A drive up the Trace to Nashville takes about the same amount of time as speeding up the four-lane, but spares you from the trucks and traffic. Most of the stops are well worth a quick visit - especially the 2 waterfalls in Tennessee and...More

A great way to travel if you're willing, or have the ability, to slow down and relax. A beautiful drive if you enjoy getting there.

Had done the top part of the Natchez a few years back and this was an opportunity to do the bottom half. I traveled from Natchez to Rt. 72 in northern Mississippi. Beautiful scenery and the road except in very few places is well maintained....More

I travel the parkway frequently. It is peaceful, but it gets a little boring after a while. Nothing but up close and personal trees to look at. Not much in the way of scenery, at least in the Northeastern part of Mississippi.

We took the trace all the way from Natchez to the Mississippi border. It was very informative and would recommend it to anyone that is going to that area.

The Interstate just cheats you out of the real treats in life. Those are off the beaten path. Speaking of old pathways, the Natchez Trace Parkway is an old Indian trade route from the New Orleans to Nashville. Right smack in the middle of it...More

There are lots of stops along this beautiful parkway driving journey. The history behind the parkway is best explained in the film that is shown at the Visitor’s Center, and it’s worth the stop to get out, stretch your legs, and step inside to learn...More

There are many beautiful homes in Natchez. The drive from the southern terminus of the trace in Natchez to Jackson can be done in about 3 hours if you don't stop much. You definitely do want to stop at Mt Locust, Owens... More

Go to the visitor center and get your map before you start the drive or you could look it up on line and see if you could get it that way. I hope that it helped you out some.
