Greek Revival mansions that survived the Civil War to welcome visitors with warm tradition and flavorful cuisine …

A forested landscape of gently rolling hills where battles raged and peace was won … A historic paved trail—the Natchez Trace Parkway—carved through the wilderness by Native Americans, pioneer settlers, and now by bicyclists like you. Discover why this passage of exceptional beauty and historical importance has been named among the very best bike routes in America. We’ll turn back the hands of time as we encounter Civil War sites, classic mansions, and lodgings that embody the long-nurtured spirit of Southern graciousness and courtesy.
