As Tennessee Williams once said, “There is time for departure even when there’s no certain place to go.” What better place to embrace this wisdom than in the state that bears the author’s name?
Sidled up to the historic plantations and bustling honky-tonks of Nashville is the small town on La Vergne, a sleepy hideaway with a front-row seat to “Music City, USA.” Wake up in La Vergne hotels to the crooning sounds of whip-poor-wills and spend your days on the lake reeling in “big fish” stories, then heed the siren song of up-and-coming stars and dance your way through each easygoing evening.
On the northern side of town, surround yourself with the gently lapping waters of Percy Priest Lake, a sprawling reservoir and the habitat of fine feathered friends. Settle in on a quiet dock as the sun comes up, just you and the goldfinches warming up their wings. This is your retreat; let yourself off the hook with a fishing reel in hand and the splash of fresh water at your ankles. To glide across the lake, charter a boat from Fate Sanders Marina. You’ll fit right in with the locals, especially the “water strider” bugs.
When you’re ready to rejoin polite Southern society, slide behind the wheel of one of our classic rental cars in La Vergne and drive west toward Nashville. There, you’ll sway to the boisterous ballads of street corner buskers and savor the sweet and tangy taste of Tennessee barbecue. Countless lyrical legends have gotten their starts in Nashville’s unassuming pubs and lively dance halls. And you, traveler, you’ll rest your feet in quiet hotels in La Vergne, TN, where the stars shine even brighter than the city lights.
When you want to get away, abscond to small-town Tennessee. With downright lovely La Vergne hotel deals from Travelocity, you can rest easy in the comforts of Southern hospitality or stay in the best hotels in Nashville and start singing a new tune.
