Murfreesboro, Tennessee Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Murfreesboro prides itself on its position at the "Geographic Center of Tennessee” and there’s an obelisk to mark the spot. Located within easy traveling distance of Nashville, the town is home to Middle Tennessee State University, the state’s second largest. Murfreesboro is located in Rutherford County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state due to its proximity to the state capital.

Cannonsburgh Village displays the town’s history with a grouping of buildings and artifacts ranging from pioneer life on through 1925. And don’t miss the "World’s Largest Cedar Bucket” also at Cannonsburgh. The 6 foot tall bucket was made in Murfreesboro and exhibited at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition in Chicago.

Stop by Oaklands Historic House Museum to tour the plantation home of a local doctor. Children will enjoy Discovery Center at Murfree Spring with its hands-on exhibits. Round out the day with a visit to the nation’s largest earthen fort, Fortress Rosecrans, constructed by the Union army. The site includes a three mile walking/biking trail leading to Stones River National Battlefield, site of a Civil War battle.

Horse-lovers will want to visit Tennessee Miller Coliseum, an arena for horse shows. Outdoor recreation begins with golfing: there are a half-dozen courses in the area. The Murfreesboro Greenway System treats visitors to nature hikes, walks and biking along five miles of trails with area history wayside exhibits.

Nightlife here focuses on the Murfreesboro/Rutherford County Center for the Arts, home to theater, music, dance and art exhibits. Dining ranges from the City Café, where plate lunches have been served since 1900 to Marina’s Italian Restaurant, where diners willingly wait for freshly prepared entrees.

Murfreesboro is located in Middle Tennessee about 40 minutes southeast of Nashville, off I-24.
