We have been on a road trip and this was recommended by friends. It is a beautiful roadway that stretches for hundreds of miles. It is a nice break from the interstate highways. If you have time take this scenic highway.

I love the parkway. Very relaxing drive. Stop along the way to see the many sights along the way. No gas station signs or things that you will see on regular roadways. Only grass trees animals rivers and creeks. Only 2 roadside stops.

You drive and drive with no billboards, restaurants, convenience stores, gas stations, etc. Just silence and mother nature. Don't be in a hurry, speed limit is 50. Be careful of driving during dusk and dark, the deer come out.

This historic road, which originated as a number of different Indian trails, was an important link for commerce, the mails and the military before the advent of steam power reduced the usefulness of the road stretching from Natchez to Nashville. My 9 year old daughter...More

Wonderful road if you have the time to enjoy it (speed limit is 55). We’re retired so we loved it. Beautiful trees and wildflowers. GOD is good to give us such splendor.
