When we have some time one of my family’s favorite things to do is to explore the small towns of Tennessee, and see what they have to offer. On my birthday weekend we headed down to Bell Buckle, TN located in beautiful Bedford County. Bell Buckle is a small town known for its antiquing, rolling landscape, and artisan community. We found it not to be lacking in any shape or form, the landscape was beautiful and the air was filled with honey suckle which engulfed the car as we drove to our destination. When we arrived at Bell Buckle we instantly knew we had arrived somewhere that was authentic. It is exactly what you would expect of a small southern town; large southern homes with manicured lawns, small boutique shops who’s stone thresholds were worn down from over a hundred years of patrons passing over them, a bed and breakfast, town cafe which was on an hour wait at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, ice cream shop, and full of southern hospitality. If you are interested in visiting Middle Tennessee I would definitely recommend you make Bell Buckle one of your stops.
