Being a Tennessean for a good portion of my life, I hate to admit that there are many spots I haven’t discovered. While I love having a big trip on my agenda, it’s always fun (and cheap!) to explore closer to home. This is where day trips come in handy. Hop in the car, take a short drive, and see what’s out there! This past weekend, my friend Laura and I headed east to Rock Island State Park with a pit stop in Woodbury to visit Short Mountain Distillery.
From Nashville, you can take either I-40 or I-24 east, depending on where in town you are. Either way is about a 1 1/2 drive to the distillery. We went on Sunday and got there right in time for the 12:30 p.m. tour. The tour is $10 bucks and they tell you about the history of distilling in that area from way back in prohibition times to today.
