The latest converts are the folks over at Condē Nast Traveler, where the Trace was recently highlighted as one of “The Ten Best Secret Fall Foliage Getaways!”

Now, we know that it may be just a tad bit early until the fall colors really start to show in late October – early November, but we are excited about the amazing display of color coming our way. Let’s have a sneak peak at what we can look forward to!

While there’s no way to totally determine the best time and place for fall foliage since each year can be different, the northern sections of the Trace between Tupelo, MS and Nashville, TN in mid-November have offered some of the most stunning views.

In addition to gorgeous foliage, the Trace offers cyclists a great route for riding, attractions and recreational activities for the whole family, and interpretive sites that’ll peak any history buff’s interest. Along either side of the Natchez Trace Parkway, visitors can stop for a good night’s rest at the quaint B&Bs and hotels available. And, of course, we can’t forget to mention the delicious (and we mean DELICIOUS) restaurants along the way, too. If you love to eat, be outdoors, and see stunning and fascinating attractions, the Natchez Trace Parkway is for you. So get out there, and fall in love with the Trace!
