The Trace is really enjoyable, just note that it has very limited access. There are only 2 or 3 exits between Teupelo and Natchez, plan accordingly.

US Hwy 61, Hwy 1 are enjoyable also as they more or less run along the East side of the river through the farmlands. There are casinos in Tunica and Vicksburg

I was going to say the Natchez Trace for sure but as mentioned, access is limited and you won't find signs advertising fuel, but that's what makes it such a nice ride.

Oh and thanks for the Jimmy Buffet quote, now I can't get that song outa my head! He went to Paris...

Good info, Thanks. Any thoughts on senic routes through Indiana or Illinois? One of our stops on the way down is Memphis TN.

I live by the northern part of the Trace. Plenty of places for fuel here. Maps of the Trace are free on the Trace and show exits with towns.
