Five Fun Day Trips From Nashville

Are you looking to get out and explore more of Tennessee this spring and summer? The state has many day-trip options that can be fun for the whole family. Check out the different landscapes, the beauty, the history, and the excitement that is waiting just a few miles down the road from Nashville.


Fall Creek Falls State Park

Covering more than 26,000 acres, this state park is one of the most expansive and beautiful places you will find. Home to one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern U.S., there is plenty to feast your eyes on here. Follow one of several trails to see three other waterfalls/cascades, or check out the picnic and playground areas. You won't be disappointed!

Jack Daniel's Distillery

Seventy miles south of Nashville, nestled in a dry county, the oldest registered distillery in the U.S. is open for tours and tastings. The tour is available for all ages, but you must be 21 for the tastings. Come experience the history at the distillery and then venture into downtown Lynchburg to explore the quaint town square and stay for lunch at Miss Mary BoBo's.
