An Unexpected Ancient Ocean Is Hiding Underground In Tennessee

An ancient ocean seems like a tall order to fill, especially if you make your home in landlocked Tennessee. A beautiful state with a whole lot of charm, you have to know that we have a few tricks up our sleeves as well. In Sweetwater, Tennessee, the ground opens up to a secret and a story that was discovered not too long ago — and you can experience it all for yourself. We have one question for you: do you trust a glass-bottomed boat?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Don’t be a statistic — most Tennesseans miss these amazing local destinations, and you can’t take that chance.
