Leiper's FORK

The Most Charming Tiny Town There Ever Was

Leipers Fork is the poster child for charming rural villages. Located near the top of the Natchez Trace Parkway, this sophisticated but unpretentious two-lane town checks all the boxes: historic buildings, gorgeous scenery, working farms, friendly neighbors, down-home restaurants. The whole village is on the National Register of Historic Places and is protected by The Land Trust for Tennessee, saving it from overdevelopment forever.

Folks around here operate on “Leipers Fork Standard Time,” which is a lot like island time, if the surrounding ocean were rolling hills. And that’s just the way they like it. Leipers Fork is tiny on purpose, a popular visitor destination, and a “famously secret” kind of haven. But those who live here know the one-in-a-million luck of finding such a close-knit, artists’ enclave, and they’re dedicated to keeping it that way.

Take Time Off To Travel Through The Birthplace Of Music

The Americana Music Triangle connects travelers to the people, places and stories of the world’s No. 1 music destination. Along this historic path between Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans, and encompassing the five states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, is found the birthplace of nine distinct genres of music.

It is here, where two emerging technologies – radio and records – collide to capture, define and spread the distinctive sounds of blues, jazz, country, rock ‘n’ roll, R&B/soul, gospel, Southern gospel, cajun/zydeco and bluegrass. One of the most popular music trails in the world, the Americana Music Triangle hits on all cylinders in the music centers of Nashville, Memphis, Muscle Shoals and New Orleans. But it’s in the small towns and rural communites of places like Itta Bena, Mississippi where B.B. King was born, and Indianola, where he later lived, and Dyess, Arkansas, birthplace of Johnny Cash, that music travelers come to understand the roots and reasons for the music.
