Of course, it is also the namesake for the Natchez Trace
, the centuries-old, 444-mile path from Natchez to Nashville, long used by American Indians before becoming a U.S. thoroughfare. Today the Natchez Trace Parkway provides beautiful picnic areas, the rare Emerald Mound ceremonial mound, and the historic Mount Locust Inn, all just a few minutes’ drive from downtown Natchez. But Natchez is more than history. It’s easy elegance and casual charm, true hospitality, historic homes, lush gardens and moss-covered oaks and delicious down-home fare
— with the attractions of a great small city: historic sites and museums
, a safe, walkable downtown, and a rich cultural scene.
