Hey, there Tennessee – we think you’re pretty amazing. Buuuuut there are a couple of things you may want to keep in your back pocket, just to make sure you’re absolutely safe. Interested? Read right along.
10) Walking in Memphis
Memphis has a high car accident rate, which means that walk on Beale Street may not be as exciting as you think.
9) Hiking to Waterfalls
There are hundreds of gorgeous waterfalls in the state, but sometimes folks take their beauty for granted. Make sure you always listen to guidelines set out by the parks and keep you and your family safe!
8) Cliff Jumping
Lots of college kids find fun in a little bit of cliff jumping. It is, however, a highly dangerous activity that has claimed many young adult lives throughout the state.
7) Brown Recluse Spiders
We're guessing you don't want a brown recluse bite - these spiders can be deadly.
6) Aaaaaand Black Widows
You'll find these poisonous arachnids under your porch and anywhere there's a bit of darkness. Yikes!
5) Great Smoky Mountain Black Bears
Black bears are up in the mountains, and they're fine if you're fine with them. Don't aggravate them, guys!
4) Gatlinburg Traffic
Have you ever been caught in traffic with Galinburg tourists? No. Because you're still alive.
3) A farmer with an itchy trigger finger
We believe in our second amendment right down here, so don't be doing anything fishy in the dark. It may not end well...
2) A hunting accident
Again, careful with those firearms! Hunting is real fun out here, as long as it's done right.
1) Getting Lost in the Wilderness
If you don't have the sense of direction of a true Tennessean then you may lose yourself in the expansive wilderness. Too many people are lost every year. Don't be one of them!
We’re not saying these are worrisome, but you know. There’s danger everywhere you look to find it. Anything we missed…? Let us know below!
