Parkways

Parkways are beautifully designed roads. Many parkways restrict traffic from trucks and include beautifully designed pull offs where visitors can enjoy the view. During the 1930s, many parkways were designed as part of the national park system as job creation projects. The Natchez Trace Parkway, completed in 2006 after 67 years of construction in Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi, is now considered one of the most scenic and beautifully designed parkways in America, and is designated as an "All American Road" scenic byway. Other parkways, such as the Foothills Parkway, are very close to completion.
