Surprisingly, this unassuming town boasts the Renaissance Center, a state-of-the-art facility utilizing the latest technology to promote educational programs and art exhibits.
The Natchez Trace Parkway provides a scenic and historic drive for visitors to the Middle Tennessee area. Stretching over 400 miles (643.73 kilometers) between an area just southwest of Nashville to Natchez, Mississippi, the Natchez Trace Parkway winds through such cities as Jackson and Tupelo, Mississippi and Cherokee, Alabama. Significant stops along the parkway include a variety of Indian mounds in the Middle Tennessee and northern Mississippi areas, a number of historic Confederate grave sites, and a variety of natural vistas. Visitors to the Natchez Trace Parkway may wish to camp along the way or cycle through parts of the parkway and surrounding areas.
Just north of Nashville in Kingston Springs is the winding Harpeth River. Enjoy this natural waterway and the wildlife that lives in the protected reserve along its banks by canoe. At Tip-a-Canoe, paddlers can get in the water at a reasonable price for a four hour trip. Pack a lunch, grab some friends, and make a day of it. A shuttle will transport you and your party to and from the launch area.
These days, children seem to be spending too much time watching television. But Bellevue Recreation Center is sure to lure your kids away from the electronic babysitter. There's a full-scale community playground with wooden forts and old train cars for kids to explore. Older kids can climb Bellevue Mountain, a large mound of dirt and brush. There are also enough swings, seesaws and slides to keep youngsters busy for hours. And while the children have a nice time, adults can relax in the shaded pavilion.
