If you get to Tennessee it is worth a few hours to drive the Natchez Trace Parkway.

 

It is a slow winding drive thru beautiful country.  It runs the ridgelines, so you can drive it or hike it easily (bicycle). Lots of history, from Indian travels to a Lweis and Clark connection (Merriweather Lewis was killed there and is buried there).

The Trace's use was a major factor contributing to the development of the nation's interior. It ran from Natchez to Nashville, 

It is a vast network of trails, which we now know as the Natchez Trace, was used by American Indians in prehistoric times,

Thanks Bear
