Only three national parks have more visitors each year than the Natchez Trace Parkway, a national park of great natural beauty and historical significance that follows a 450-mile course from Nashville, Tennessee, to Natchez, Mississippi. First used as a vital transportation link by Native Americans and later by "kaintucks" and frontiersmen, today the Trace is experienced by more than 13 million visitors a  year.

Traveling the Trace explores the parkway and sights within 30 miles of either side of the Natchez Trace. In addition to the well-known stops, the authors visit side roads most tourists ignore or don't know exist. It is a guide to:

  • 25 Civil War sites
  • 73 antebellum homes

  • 78 antique shops and malls
  • 72 bed and breakfasts
  • 56 campgrounds
  • 175 restaurants
  • 49 spots for water sports and a whole lot more
