Reading Time: 5 minutes

My first time to Tennessee was awesome. I rented a car and explored Nashville and Clarksville. The weather was sweltering hot and humid. There was amazing food everywhere you go. Music from the bars and restaurants filled the streets. This is definitely the place you come for some damn peace and quiet. There was so much to do and I’m up for doing it all over again! Here are some of my favorite moments in the Volunteer State!
