Why Motorcycle the Natchez Trace? Bed and breakfasts along and near the Trace.

The 444 mile long Natchez Trace Parkway stretches from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. Why motorcycle the Natchez Trace Parkway?

Reason #10: There are many "motorcycle friendly" bed and breakfasts located along and near the Trace.

Taking an overnight trip on the Natchez Trace without advance planning can be somewhat difficult, as the Park Service does not permit any advertising, either in the form of signs or in literature at their visitor's centers. Also, through the rural areas where the Trace passes there are very few hotels located within a few miles of the Trace.

Fortunately, there are bed and breakfasts located up and down the Trace that are a short ride away. The bed and breakfasts are very "motorcycle friendly".

The Natchez Trace Bed and Breakfast Reservation Service can help you locate the perfect spots to make your overnight stays a memorable part of your trip. They can help you plan your itinerary and provide tips about routes, lunch stops, terrain, etc.

This is just one of 10 reasons why the Natchez Trace Parkway is an excellent motorcycle route:
  1. Commercial traffic is prohibited.
  2. Traffic is generally very light except around Tupelo and Jackson.
  3. No stop signs or stop lights. Access on and off the Trace is via on/off ramps which means no need to worry about cross traffic.
  4. The parkway is clean and smooth. One motorcyclist said it was "like riding on a cloud".
  5. Scenery is awesome. Instead of utility poles and buildings, the Trace is lined with forests, farmland, creeks and beautiful vistas.
  6. All along the Trace through Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee, historical and nature attractions offer interesting breaks and rest stops.
  7. Restroom facilities on the Trace are available about every twenty miles.
  8. Contrary to popular belief, there are gas stations, markets and restaurants near the Trace.
  9. Numerous side trails take you past antebellum and victorian homes, sunken roads, civil war battlefields and southern towns.
  10. There are many "motorcycle friendly" bed and breakfasts located along and near the Trace.
