Ain't no place you'd rather be than this city in Tennessee

Smack dab in the middle of the state (there's even a monument marking its center), Murfreesboro is a bustling mid-sized city with heaps of American Civil War history. The Battle of Stones River was one of the war's most violent, and the area's commemorated with a national park and memorial. Today, this fast-growing city attracts history buffs, outdoor lovers who appreciate the area's greenways and parks, and homebodies who love that Southern pride, hospitality and food. And for those country music lovers, most Murfreesboro vacation rentals are about 30 miles southeast of Nashville, America's country music capital.

Make yourself at home at the city's historic Main Street

Downtown Murfreesboro has the cutest Main Street and Town Square you ever did see, and you can jam out to the Main Street Jazzfest if you come here in May. Also downtown are theaters, bars, local shops and the Murfreesboro Center for the Arts performance venue. You're in Tennessee, which means you must sample the food for which they're famous: BBQ pork. Wash that down with some sweet tea and if you're brave, maybe a swig of moonshine, Tennesse's famed liquor. Further out, there are 2 expansive malls, museums ranging from military- to kid-friendly, and lots of green spaces.

History lovers, y'all gonna eat your heart out

No matter where your Murfreesboro vacation rental is, chances are you'll be getting a dose of the area's history. Do a time warp at Cannonsburgh Village, a replica of a pioneer town from the 1830s to the 1930s. This area's famous for the bloody Battle of Stones River that took place during the Civil War, and you can learn more about it and honor the 6,000 fallen soldiers at the Stones River National Battlefield park, monument and cemetary. When the kids have had enough history, take them to the Discovery Center at Murfee Spring, an interactive nature museum with live animals.

Sweet spring storms, hot summer sun and a surprise snowfall

If your southern excursion is happening between May to September, prep for hot days with temps in the 80s and 90s. This is also the most popular time for folks to book Murfreesboro vacation rentals, when the msuic scene's lively and the weather's so gorgeous you just wanna git outside. It's most likely to rain from March to June, and epic thunderstorms roll through too—sometimes even a tornado. In the winter, it dips to the 30s and 40s and sometimes lower, which is when a rare snowfall might shock the locals before it quickly melts away.

Murfreesboro, where a river runs through it

This is a flatter area of Tennessee, but don't y'all go thinking that makes it any less scenic. All around the city are wetlands, and both natural and manmade lakes. The West Fork Stones River weaves through Murfreesboro, making the historic downtown area even more charming. Grab a walking stick and a camera and traipse the Murfreesboro Greenway, an extensive trail and paved path system that follows the river for several miles. The nearby J. Percy Priest Lake is home to all kinds of wildlife, such as ducks, black bears, cougars, boars and armadillo.
