Summertime Destinations In Murfreesboro!
We’re well on our way through the summer, and that means quite a few people have already gone on their summer vacations and returned home to the daily grind. Sitting in the office wishing you could go back out into the world for an extended summer adventure is no fun, but don’t let that get you down. We’re bringing you a list of the best things to do in Murfreesboro, Tennessee!
- Discovery Center: A favorite of children and adults alike, the Discovery Center boasts tons of things for families to experience together. Among some of the favorites are permanent exhibits like The Five Senses, which takes you through an exploration of the senses through enormous models of the human body, and the Creation Station, in which kids can explore their boundless imaginations with all kinds of art supplies.
- Stones River Battlefield Run: For those who are athletically inclined, you can strap on your running shoes and experience the beauty of Murfreesboro on this scenic 6 mile run that offers a mix of natural foothills, paved path, and even takes you through the Stones River National Battlefield. Start at the General Bragg Trailhead and finish in the Murfreesboro Bark Park!
- Various Historical Monuments: For ametuer historians, or even those with a passing interest in the history of Murfreesboro, there are plenty of sites to visit. The Hazen Brigade Monument inside of the Stones River National Cemetery is the resting place of over 6,000 soldiers that died in the Battle of Stones River. This piece of history is the oldest monument to the Civil War still in its original location. If you’re looking for a more interactive historical experience, we highly recommend you make a trip to Cannonsburgh Village. This representation of an 1830s village will have you feeling as though you’ve travelled back in time to the days of old.
With these three great things to check out, and many others not mentioned, there’s no reason you can’t have your own mini-vacation right here in Murfreesboro. Whether you’re hitting the road or staying right here in your own backyard, stop by Murfreesboro Nissan and get behind the wheel of any one of our great vehicles - like the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, which is great for daily drives and road trips alike!
