South Central Tennessee

Don’t Just Travel Tennessee,
Experience Tennessee.

Tennessee is a state known for her natural beauty with mountainsides that cast shadows into deep green valleys and rivers that wind through rolling hills, cutting through limestone beds creating beautiful waterfalls, protecting a rich history, and shaping a land of hospitality matched by no other.

Tennessee is also known for her pivotal role in the history of music. From genres ranging from country to blues, and even rock and roll, all of it was born or at least raised right here in Tennessee.

Traveling through Tennessee isn’t enough, you have to Experience Tennessee. Be it the aroma of sweet-sour mash whiskey rolling through the hills of Lynchburg, or the magic you become part of in a field with 100,000 of your closest friends at Bonnaroo, Tennessee is an experience. Making memories in a canoe with your kids on the Buffalo, Duck, or Elk Rivers, or fishing at Tims Ford, Normandy, or Lake Lindsey. Hiking the mountains of Sewanee or enjoying the cool mist of Big Falls at Old Stone Fort State Park, in Tennessee, there is an experience for you.

To help you plan your trip to Tennessee and to enjoy all of the experiences our beautiful state has to offer, we have designed several planning assets to help you along the way. You can view these at ExperienceTN.com or pick up a brochure at one of our local welcome centers or state welcome centers.

Tennessee Whiskey, Wines, and Brews. South Central Tennessee is home to eight distilleries, nine wineries, and four breweries with a couple more coming this summer. From world-famous brands like Jack Daniels or to the craft of the trade like American Craft Distillery of Lynchburg, you are sure to enjoy the amazing pride and dedication of those making distilling and brewing. Be sure to visit as many as you can and win a prize along the way for your efforts.

The eight distilleries are American Craft of Lynchburg, Big Machine of Lynnville, Branch Water of Winchester, Cascade Hollow home of George Dickel of Tullahoma, Jack Daniel’s of Lynchburg, Prichard’s of Kelso, Southern Pride of Fayetteville, and Uncle Nearest of Shelbyville.

The nine wineries are Amber Falls of Hamshire, Beans Creek of Manchester, Big Creek of Pulaski, Grinder’s Switch of Centerville, Keg Springs of Hampshire, Lexington Vineyard of Lynnville, Lynchburg Winery in Lynchburg, Natchez Hills Vineyard of Hampshire, and Pickers Creek of Lewisburg.

Currently, there are four breweries across the region including Asgard Brewing in Columbia, Bad Idea Brewing Company in Columbia, Common John Brewing Company in Manchester, and Ole Shed Brewing in Tullahoma. Twisted Copper Brewing has announced a planned opening for later in 2021.

Experience the Outdoors. There is always a new trail to hike, a new waterfall to explore, and a new fishing hole to enjoy. We have divided the outdoors into three categories: “Rivers, Lakes, & Fishing”, “Trails & Falls”, and “State Parks & Natural Areas”. 

An easy place to start is with the five amazing state parks that dot the south-central Tennessee map. David Crocket of Lawrenceburg, Old Stone Fort of Manchester, Tims Ford or Winchester, Mousetail Landing of Linden, and Henry Horton of Chapel Hill all offer vast outdoor recreation, fishing, bird watching, boating, and so much more. Along with the five amazing state parks our region is home to ten state natural areas, four great rivers, and several lakes. If outdoors is what you are seeking, you can experience the outdoors at ExperienceTN.com.

Experience the History. Tennessee has no shortage of great history. From the civil war to Amish country, a step back in time is each to accomplish with the Tennessee History Trail. This trail is one of our most expansive experiences with over 50 stops across the region.

Experience Tennessee with us this spring and summer. With all of these great resources to explore and a list of amazing events like the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Jack Daniel’s BBQ, Muel Day, The Bell Buckle Craft Fair, and Shelbyville’s Walking Horse Celebration, Tennessee has the right experience waiting for you and your family.
