Winter in the south resembles spring on some days, surprising you with warmer temperatures before plummeting to freezing 24 hours later. Enjoy the nicer days by visiting the Museum of Appalachia if you’re anywhere near Clinton, Tennessee, a small town off I-75. The living history museum covers 65 acres and features one man’s lifetime collection of Southern Appalachian log homes, barns, and other structures. Tour inside exhibits displaying thousands of authentic items made and used by talented and resourceful mountain folks—like musical instruments, farm equipment, quilts, and baskets. Spend time exploring the past and reward yourself with lunch at the onsite restaurant serving southern favorites. During January and February take advantage of the museum’s 50% off admission Wednesday special.
If you could travel back in time for a short visit, when and where would you go?
