The Pink Elephant
Let’s talk about the *pink* elephant in the room! This Cookeville landmark is the #1 Instagram spot in the city! Snap a pick with “Ellie” at 680 S Willow Avenue! Ellie always sports a pair of sunnies, and in the summer sometimes a bathing suit!
Looking for a great hike? How about visiting Tennessee’s eighth largest waterfall? The Cummins Falls State Park has over 280 acres of incredible natural beauty! Bring your furry friend along! This park is pet-friendly as long as they stay on a leash.
Right across the street from Cream City is The Depot Museum! This historic spot was built in 1909 and houses many Tennessee Central Railway artifacts. Step aboard the 1913 Baldwin steam engine, the 1920 classic red caboose and two of the small track cars.
This one isn’t a place per se, but you don’t want to miss it! Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? From November 29th through December 1st, catch some of your favorite teams go head to head all weekend long! Find the schedule here.
