8 Reasons Everyone Wants To Visit This Tennessee Town… And You Should Too

Tennessee is a tourist destination in itself, but there’s something about the eastern side of the state that even gets locals all dreamy and doe-eyed. Summering or wintering in the mountains truly is blissful, an experience that puts all of us at ease and gives us something to look forward to. Whether you’re planning a trip sometime soon or simply dreaming, the tiny town of Townsend should be added to your bucket list. It’s a stunning experience and a true hidden gem of the south.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
