The best of the antebellum South traditional hospitality, early American history, and distinctive architecture.

Magnolia trees and moss-draped oaks add a charming flavor to quiet country roads. Classic Adventures enjoys the distinction of being the original: the first bicycle touring company to offer the Natchez Trace tour. In its 33rd consecutive season, this tour offers incredible, unmatched value, in terms of lodging, dining, itinerary, experienced guides, and customer service. Dale Hart set out in 1985 to research this exciting new destination. Today we rank it among one of our best offerings.

We invite you to call for a detailed price comparison and description of our lodging and restaurants. If experience counts, then our guides 30 years of expertise and historical knowledge cannot be surpassed.

Not only will we visit many classic mansions, we'll lodge in several. Our lodging accents Southern splendors at Old Capitol Inn (Jackson), Anchuca Mansion or Baer House Mansion (Vicksburg), and the acclaimed Natchez Grand Hotel situated on the banks of the Mississippi (Natchez), truly a showpiece of the South.

Gourmet specialties such as sweet potato pie, Cajun catfish, and mint juleps offer sweet rewards at day's end. A tour of Longwood Mansion and poignant accounts of the Civil War give pause to appreciate our nation's heritage.

Much of our cycling winds along the Natchez Trace Parkway, a gentle, park-like route which abounds in cultural and scenic delights. Enjoy a short walk on the old sunken trace, the footpath where travelers journeyed north toward home. Visit Mount Locust, an old tavern/inn that provided simple lodging for weary Trace travelers in the 1800's. Off the parkway, gentle country roads include stops at Windsor Ruins, Rocky Springs, and the mysterious Emerald Mound (Indian burial ground).
