Natchez Trace Parkway
This long and historic roadway stretches some 400 miles between Nashville, Tennessee, and Natchez, Mississippi. The route served as a pathway for early Indian tribes in the area and was later used by pioneer settlers, traders and Colonial troops. Now maintained by the National Park Service, the Trace cuts through some of the most dense and beautifully preserved woodlands in the state. Picnic areas, campsites and historic markers line the Trace, making it an interesting and peaceful place for a Sunday drive. Motorists are advised to obey the speed limit and drive with caution, as wildlife flourishes along the roadway.
Loved it!! We went from Nashvile, Tn to Natchez, Ms
We had a great time stopping at alot of the little side stops and reading about our histroy. This is a great trip for families of all sizes and incomes.
A must see is Birdsong Hollow to see the double arch bridge, then stop again at the Jackson Falls, especially after a nice rain like we just had.
Then stop again at the Meriweather Lewis Monument to explore the history there.
The vistas alone at Jeff Busby Park were worth the whole trip. Then it was a delight to go through the French Camp.
Of course seeing Rocky Springs was a delight as well.
Unfortunately we didn't make it to Mt Locust because they were closed.
On our way back to Nashville we stopped at Grand Gulf Military Park and it is as much of a must see as was the Windsor Ruins, and the Vicksburg Military Park is as well.
We started from Natchez. We stopped in kisciusko ms. which is half way to our trip. Nice little town. And we stayed at nice place called Days Inn.in Kosciusko. Then our next stop was Tupelo Ms. We stayed at days Inn Base on experience with days Inn In Kosciusko. It was a wonderful trip. Everyone shoul try once in a life.
I love the Natchez Trace Parkway. I live in Vidalia, LA so I can go anytime just about. You have beautiful scenery and different places where you can stop and explore. When you have the chance to go, you have to see everything that you go by.
