Natchez Trace, Tupelo, Jackson suggestions

  • 4

We were planning to drive the trace from north to south in March/April of this year. Realize that all dining/lodging is off the trace itself but were wondering if there were any places worth planning a lunch/dinner stop around. Would definitely overnight in Tupelo, Jackson, and Vicksburg per our current plan.

      I concur!! Heading to FL next week from Ft Worth and plan on stopping in to see Mr D!!

    2. I would definitely stop in Natchez and spend a day touring the plantation homes there. Monmouth is an oustanding place for the night. The dining room there is superb. I would also check out The Carriage House Restaurant at Stanton Hall for a wonderful lunch.
