Don’t let Collinwood’s small population fool you - this micro community is bursting with personality and connection. This historic former railroad town sits just north of the Alabama state line, welcoming north-bound travelers to Tennessee just a few hundred yards off the Natchez Trace Parkway.

Welcome one and all

While Wayne County’s official Welcome Center is here, it’s fair to say all of Collinwood, Tennessee is a visitors’ center of sorts. The town is widely known as a friendly stop for travelers; offering markets, grocery stores, and a bite to eat for anyone driving or riding the Natchez Trace Parkway. Nashville cyclists, Midwestern road trip tourists, cross-country motorcyclists, and even Canadian RV travelers stop through regularly as they travel the scenic route through the Mid-South, and they all make friends in Collinwood.


How could folks resist a stop here? It’s the perfect tucked-away spot to stop and enjoy the scenery and hospitality along the Natchez Trace Parkway. And more and more, the people who visit fall in love with the region and choose to call it home.
