Winter’s icy embrace has enveloped Tennessee, kissing the mountaintops with frost and snow. If you’re itching to head out and witness this breathtaking beauty yourself, pack your microspikes, bundle up in warm layers, and get hiking! Today, we’re sharing our Top Tennessee Winter Hikes. While you’re adventuring, please stick to trails that are clearly marked by our state’s official parks and wildlife management department. Because trails, even gentle ones, are more dangerous when icy, we recommend hiking in teams. Carry plenty of water, some energy-rich food, and be sure someone responsible knows your location, destination, and approximate return time.

Nashville Hot Chicken has taken the culinary scene by storm in the last decade. Once a flavor that could only be enjoyed hyper-locally, the painfully pleasurable treat can now be found all across the US. However, for the best hot chicken in the world, most would agree that Nashville and its neighboring towns are where it’s at!

The Danish and Norwegian (who have a lot of practice with dark, winter days) call this concept “hygge”, and while we may not have a full name or word for the feeling, we’re determined to up the warm and cozy. 

Below are some of our favorite ways to make that happen:

Candle Inspired Lighting

Think candles. While candles are the obvious - we aren’t saying just go out and buy more candles. Think about the type of light that candles…
