Nashville Radio Show: Tennessee's Backroads Heritage

The Tennessee's Backroads Heritage organization serves as your tourism association to bring you fun things to do in the Southern Middle Tennessee area celebrated a milestone of turning 25 years old in 2017. Beginning as a non-profit organization in the early 1990s as a pilot project under the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this area has some of the best attractions and festivals as well as outdoor recreation in the state. Traveling throughout the backroads showcases quality attractions and allows travelers to truly experience traveling at a slower pace and not be in such a hurry. You are encouraged to explore the major distilleries, historical attractions, state parks, down home restaurants and enjoy the culture of the area. The Backroads area truly has “the best of the best” that Tennessee has to offer.
