The Natchez Trace is one of the great drives in this country. Love it
But I am sometimes puzzled by those who find the Natchez Trace "boring." It's a beautiful 444 mile drive along a limited access two-lane road through trees and meadows way out in a very rural setting. You don't have any grade crossings. All the local roads along your route are lifted up and over the Trace on beautifully constructed stone overpasses, and many of them are surrounded by beautiful large trees.
Perhaps those who find the Trace "boring" miss out on not having any fast food restaurants, motels, gas stations, strip malls, billboards, or other modern conveniences along the way to occupy their thoughts. Maybe it's all that "more of the same" scenery some find "boring." Or maybe they just are not able let some history about the Natchez Trace ooze into their mind along the way.
I would suggest anybody having driven the Trace and finding it "boring" in the future don't plan on doing other drives that also perhaps could become "boring." Forget about doing the drive down to Key West. Or the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive. After all. Just how much ocean and how many trees does one need to see before becoming "bored?"
And out west, don't even think of doing the Oregon Coast. Too many rugged head lands and foam covered rocks down below. You'd be "bored" to death the first day. (Unless perhaps you got a real early start and zipped along the entire coast in one day.) And likewise, forget about doing the coast drive through Big Sur down in California too. Especially if you have also just done the Oregon Coast. It would be just a boring look at "more of the same" - - and at an ocean you had just seen up north. How "boring."
And of course the drive along route 395 between the Sierra Nevada and White Mountains out in California would also be a disaster. What could be worse that mountains on both sides of you to quickly become "bored." But then you could arrive at that conclusion in half the miles since there would be mountains on both sides of you.
And we don't even want to think about how one would ever drive across this great continent day after day without becoming "bored" with all that "more of the same" country side. Perhaps work out a route involving lots and lots of zig zaging could get one from coast to coast with a minimum amount of "boredom." And maybe if done at warp speed nobody would even have to notice the countryside. After all, isn't it all the same?
