The city is filled with amazing people and historical districs. Homes date back to the civil war, and the downtown is restored and very much alive. If you like to stroll downtown, sit down in a cafe for wine, while the kids have homeade ice cream this is it, just about 15 minutes south of Nashville. This is also the city of country star. It isn't uncommon to see Winona Judd walking downtown in the shops either.
