i'd love to hear more about how this whole road-trip to Nashville came about?! Sounds like a blast!
Leah Knowles Manager, Global Community Engagement Alteryx
We did a similar challenge last summer (the idea of one of my coworkers), and it was a LOT of fun and really useful for developing good habits around staying active during the day! After that challenge ended, I started looking for a new destination that we could reach in ~3 miles/day. Inspire was in the back of my mind, but the distance was too short as we're based in Atlanta.
A friend gave me the idea of National Parks, so I started looking for national parks or trails near Nashville. I learned about the Natchez Trace Parkway, a scenic roadway that follows a historic travel corridor through Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, ending just south of Nashville. Along its ~450 miles, the parkway passes several towns, sites related to Native American history, and sites related to the American Civil War. I thought it would be interesting to learn about those places as we "walked" the parkway.
