Davy Crockett hunted bear here, on the banks of the Obion River. Bald eagles nest in the cypress branches. And to the west, the Mississippi rolls southward. This is Northwest Tennessee: beautiful and full of unexpected treasures. THE HOT LIST Start at Union City’s Discovery Park of America, a world-class museum, where the 2017 exhibit calendar will stir the imagination of the whole family: Jan. 15 – April 30, dive into the amazing world of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Machines & Robotics. And Oct. 13 – Jan. 7, 2018, you really can’t miss the larger-than-life BUGS! Giant Robotic Creatures. The events calendar also includes a lineup of big-name concerts and live music performances. ICONIC EXPERIENCES Explore Reelfoot Lake, a place created by earthquakes and surrounded by Native American legends. Today, it is a sportsman’s paradise, full of duck hunting, fishing and boating. FREE ATTRACTION Built in the classical revival style, the Dyer County Courthouse centers a downtown historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is just one of many beautiful buildings.

LOCAL FLAVOR A popular spot for fishermen and hunters staying at Blue Bank Resort in Hornbeak, Blue Bank Fishhouse offers waterfront views of Reelfoot Lake and fresh seafood, thick steaks and hearty burgers. THE UNEXPECTED In a region full of surprises, The Trenton Teapot Collection might just take the cake. Here is an impressive permanent exhibit that is acknowledged the world over as the largest collection of porcelain veilleuses- théières teapots dating between 1750-1860. We love the Discovery Park. Everyone in our group (ages from 70 to 4) were all entertained and really enjoyed the family time. —Barbara Nickel via Facebook
