Road Trip to New Orleans, Part II

My latest column follows my and Melissa’s journey from Roanoke, Virginia to New Orleans. The highlight of this leg of the journey was our drive along the Natchez Trace Parkway.

We ended up staying the night in Tupelo, Mississippi, which is the birthplace of Elvis Presley. We didn’t get to see any Elvis Presley related historic sites there, but managed to see plenty of interesting things while driving along the Natchez Trace.

Sadly, it seems most people who drive in that vicinity don’t take the time to visit this beautiful national park. I hope this column inspires people to take the time to enjoy things when they travel. You never know when you’re going to get the opportunity to do and see something again.
