11 Troubling Facts About Tennessee You May Be Better Off Not Knowing

Dear Tennessee,

We love you. A heck of a lot. Except here’s the thing – you’re not perfect. We know you aren’t. There are a couple of rough spots that make us cringe, make us falter, make us a little bit sad. Like our violent crime or the percentage of people who graduate from college. The thing about it is, once we know about it? We can learn to fix it. We can pull together and make our state the best – because we know we it’s absolutely possible.

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/

Together, we can build Tennessee up – we can be number one. Share to make a difference!
