Destination guide

Nightspots and nature in Cookeville

Cookeville’s main claim to fame may be its setting as the home of Tennessee Technological University – or Tennessee Tech, if you want to save yourself a mouthful. But it’s more than just a college town. While it certainly has a suitably lively array of bars and restaurants that keep the local students and fun-seeking visitors happy, it also serves as a good base for seeing some of the wonders of the Tennessee landscape, located within driving distance of the city. Cookeville vacation rentals often reflect the outdoorsy appeal of the area, with rustic mountain cabins and stone farmhouses among the properties available.

The Cookeville Depot Museum will make you feel nostalgic for an era you never knew. Set within a railroad depot built in 1909, this quaint museum features vintage steam engines and carriages, lovingly restored and ready for you to climb on board for those prime selfie opportunities. If you’re here with kids, you can let them work off some energy at the Cookeville Children’s Museum, with its colorful, interactive play areas, before heading over to the Cookeville History Museum for another trip into the past. Antiques, old photos, and tales from long ago will bring the story of the area to life.


Waterfalls and lake escapes near Cookeville

Bring your best hiking boots to your Cookeville vacation rental, because you’ll be putting them to good use at Cummins Falls State Park. Located just northwest of Cookeville, this sprawling, scenic marvel attracts legions of visitors eager to see the eponymous falls first-hand. Clamber across the rocks and you’ll not only be able to see the cascading, crystalline waters, but you can also bathe in them too. More of the great outdoors is found northwards, close to the border with Kentucky, where Dale Hollow Lake will let you show off your kayaking skills. You can also camp by the sparkling water, or head back into Cookeville to pitch up in a bar and take in some live jam sessions while sampling the local cocktails and craft beers.


Picking the right seasons for Cookeville

You’ll want to pack the sunblock if you’re heading over in the summer months, because it does get very hot and sunny. If that bothers you, you can always book Cookeville vacation rentals for the spring and fall sweet spots, when the weather is fine without being uncomfortable, and you can head out to explore the local Tennessee terrain on foot. And if it gets too hot, you can always cool off in those picturesque waterfalls and lakes.
