15 Welcoming Small Towns In Tennessee Where You’ll Feel Like Family

Tennessee is a sweet home for many, a place where they retreat from the rough rush of the world and feel peace amongst the lush greenery and kind people. It’s always encouraging to visit someplace new only to find yourself valued and encouraged as if you were one of the locals. We spoke to quite a few native Tennesseans (so many!), and they gave us insight into some of the best places to visit in the state – the small towns and tight knit communities. Do you agree?

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/
