Natchez Trace Parkway
An ancient trail perhaps created by bison and giant sloths thousands of years ago, and for the last 2000 years journeyed by Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Creek Indian, preachers, bandits, soldiers, and slaves, then farmers and boatmen traveling from Tennessee to south Mississippi. Pristine and untouched by time, this scenic parkway connects 444 miles of primitive campsites, bike trails, footpaths—all part of a scenic byway that’s RV and family friendly. Find the secrets it holds, feel the spirit of the Natchez tribes, walk in explorers’ footsteps. Then, discover just beyond the trees and serene landscape communities waiting for you—filled with attractions, unique events, inviting accommodations, and famous southern-style cooking.
