(Slightly) cooler weather, fall colors, and mums on porches puts us in full fall mode, which means Halloween is right around the corner! For some of us adults, that may mean spider web draped front doors and going all out on the best candy on your block – but for a lot of adults, it means navigating the somewhat overwhelming yearly pilgrimage with their kids from door to door to Trick or Treating. As adults, it can be scary thinking about everything that can go wrong, which is why we rounded up a list of tips and tricks (get it?), for a fun and safe night of Trick or Treating for all!


As the star of the show, costumes are such a fun part of the night for kids to dream up, plan, prep and get excited for. Just remember to look for costumes…

Tennessee’s lush, often forested greenways are a system of both natural and maintained trails that connect residents to their jobs, schools, shopping, cultural centers, and entertainment—all without the use of cars or busses. 

A growing body of evidence suggests that communities that are supported by these beautiful walking and biking trails are in higher demand, which bolsters property values. Because the people of Tennessee have had such positive responses to local governments strengthening the greenway system, there has been a boom of trail-oriented development. Available homes near greenways can move quickly, but you don’t have to be directly on a greenway to take advantage of the positive health and environmental benefits they offer!

Tennessee’s agricultural history is an integral part of our identity; here we have always treasured our rich farmlands and the wise farming methods that have nurtured them.

If you want to experience some of the beautiful farms and knowledgeable farming families in Middle Tennessee, we recommend these U-Pick farms. Take some time out this summer and fall and get a feel for where your food begins.
