Some great Fall trips near Nashville

Some great Fall trips near NashvilleVeronica Williams looks outside of Nashville for some great Fall trips to enjoy the countryside and lift the spirits.

As the leaves change and the air cools down, it makes me want to hop in the car and go on a little road trip to enjoy the beautiful Tennessee landscape. Whether you are looking for an activity for the entire family or just a nice scenic drive, you can find plenty to do within an hour outside of Nashville. Here are four great spots that are just a short drive away from Nashville

Natchez Trace – 30 minutes outside Nashville 

Although this path winds all the way to Florida, you can hop on the Natchez Trace Parkway just 30 minutes outside of Nashville. It is great for anyone looking for a good drive, enjoying the leaves as they change colors. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, then this is a good one for you as well. A popular ride among Nashville motorcyclists, it is great for fall riding weather. Don’t be afraid to hop on your bike and do the ride by bicycle as well. Here are the exits to make a little Natchez Trace journey of your own: https://www.natcheztracetravel.com/natchez-trace-tennessee/exits.html

Historic Downtown Franklin –
30 minutes outside of Nashville 

Franklin is home to many people that work in Nashville, but Historic Downtown Franklin is a gem of its own. As you get closer to the holidays, the streets are lined with beautiful holiday decorations. Downtown Franklin hosts a variety of restaurants and shops for you to enjoy. As you get closer to the holiday season, it is also the home of “Dickens of a Christmas.” Between December 9th and 10th, you can take part in this magical event, taking you back to the 1800s with actors in full costume singing classic carols. Check out all the events for Dickens of a Christmas here: http://historicfranklin.com/events/event/dickens-of-a-christmas/

Mammoth Cave National Park –
1 hour and 20 minutes outside of Nashville 

This is our farthest trip away from Nashville, but worth the extra drive. Mammoth Cave National Park, located right outside Bowling Green, Kentucky, is truly breathtaking. It’s crazy to think the world’s longest cave system is just a short drive away from Nashville. With 400 miles of cave to explore, it is something the whole family will be in awe of. Take a tour through this cave and it will feel like you were transported to a new world entirely. Plan your trip to Mammoth Cave here: https://www.nps.gov/maca/index.htm

Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee –
40 minutes outside of Nashville 

This homegrown Tennessee town will make you feel right at home, no matter where you hail from. This charming town is warm and inviting, with their old world stores and picturesque Tennessee scenery. It is a place your grandparents would take you as a child. It’s the kind of town people write songs about growing old and falling in love. Located near Franklin, Tennessee, it is
just another stop near Nashville that is easy to make. And it’s one you will be disappointed if you don’t. Plan your picturesque visit to Leiper’s Fork here: https://visitfranklin.com/see-and-do/leipers-fork
