Memphis is a great city to live in. However, it can be quite stressful to live in a large city. Sometimes, you just want to get away from your everyday or vacations, job, and overall stress. In this case, the only option you have would be to get away from Memphis. Since you probably have free time only on your weekends, you should go on a small trip somewhere close to Memphis. On the other hand, if you are moving to Memphis with Spyder Moving Services Tennessee, going somewhere for a weekend would be a great way to relax. For this reason, here are the top six weekend getaways from Memphis. 

Townsend and Franklin 

The first suggestion would be Townsend. It is only six hours away from Memphis so you will not spend a lot of time driving. Why is this place a good getaway for your weekend? The biggest reason would be the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can spend your time walking around the National Park, driving up to Clingmans Dome, or going all the way to the observation platform that gives you amazing views of the mountains. Furthermore, this particular place is amazing if you want to reduce the stress caused by relocation. While you are waiting for local movers Memphis TN to deliver your items, you can go to Townsend.

In addition to this, a three-drive getaway Franklin is also another great small town for a short trip. This town was actually a major hub during the American Civil War. If you are a huge history fan, then this town is exactly for you. Here you can see the Carter House which served as a command center for the Confederate Army. This town is also good because it is quite close to Memphis so you can come anytime when professional movers Memphis TN call you. 

Lynchburg and Gatlinburg as weekend getaways from Memphis 

Next on the list would be Lynchburg. This city is also 3 hours away. It is extremely charming with many brick buildings, interesting restaurants, and unique shops. However, the biggest sightseeing place would be the Jack Daniel’s Distillery. As the name suggests, you can buy a bottle of Jack Daniels here. If you plan to move to Memphis, then you should definitely visit this town one weekend because it is closed. 

On the other hand, if you enjoy some skiing at Uber Gatlinburg, then you should definitely visit Gatlinburg during the winter. Here you can do the following things. 

  • Take a ride up the Gatlinburg Space Needle 
  • See the Great Smoky Mountains and the town below 
  • Visit the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium 
  • Go to the Hollywood Star Cars Museum

Arlington and Greeneville 

The last two weekend getaways from Memphis would be Arlington and Greeneville. Arlington is a hidden gem and it is really close to Memphis. You should visit the Rachel H.K. Burrow Museum to learn more about the area. On the other hand, Greenville is a little bit further away but it is worth it. You can go to Margarette Falls and have a picnic here.
