Best Day Trips in Memphis

The springtime is the perfect time for exploring Tennessee, especially if you have just used your Memphis movers. This state has more to offer than just the Great Smoky Mountains; in fact, it usually takes new residents years to even get wind of this list of the best day trips in Memphis.

Luckily, All My Sons Memphis has been moving families in and out of the area for over 25 years, so needless to say we have discovered all the best hidden gems in Tennessee. Set that moving box aside for a minute, grab your family, and head on out to one of these day trips in Memphis. We promise, you won’t be disappointed!

Twin Falls. Created by the Army Corps of Engineers in the early 20th century, these falls were originally created as dams to help provide hydroelectric power to Nashville. Nowadays, Twin Falls is one of the best places for families to take day trips in Memphis – and it’s easy to see why. Between the wooded banks leading down to a lake, floating boat docks, and a waterfall that flows out of an underground cave, this is easily one of the most Instagram-worthy places on this list.

The Lost Sea. A favorite of your Memphis movers, The Lost Sea is the nation’s largest underground lake at almost five acres. Make sure to take your family on one of the tours they will be sure not to forget anytime soon. They have wild cave tours available for people who want to go deep underground; for the less adventurous, simply take the glass-bottom boat tour in order to see the beautiful subterranean features.

Tellico Plains. For those who are using their Memphis movers to relocate to Tennessee for the first time, then you must visit Tellico Plains. One of the more laid back day trips in Memphis, visit here to get a taste of what a sleepy mountain town feels like. Just imagine mountain views for miles, rolling hills that seemingly go on forever, and easy access to the Cherohala Skyway and the Cherokee National Forest.

Reelfoot Lake. Chances are that you will pass by here on your way to your new home with your Memphis movers. But on the off-chance that you don’t, then make sure to add Reelfoot Lake to your bucket list of day trips in Memphis. The only natural lake in Tennessee, it was formed when a series of earthquakes caused the Mississippi River to run backwards and fill in the land in northwestern Tennessee. Once here, you can expect to see tons of bald cypress trees, local fisherman, and nesting bald eagles.
