Not all secrets should be spilled, but lucky for you as our readers we think you’re cool enough to know. If you’re planning a Tennessee vacation and are on the hunt for a magical community with art and music at it’s core, don’t miss Leiper’s Fork in Franklin, Tennessee. It’s a tiny little village, and when I say tiny… take what ever you’re thinking of and cut it in half.

This is a place where Grammy winning musicians play banjo at the local farmers market just for fun, and where in the Summer outdoor movies are screened in a place adorably named The Lawn Chair Theatre with fireflies appropriately adorning the sky. How whimsical and wonderful?!

Now we’ve told you once, and we’ll tell you twice… if you want to visit this town, you must stay at Pot N’ Kettle Cottages. We last stayed at their Pickers Cottage, and this time checked out Tin Roof Cottage. Things to note about this cottage: the yard is HUGE equipped with fire pit and chairs, the dining room table is epic, the decor is masterfully curated, and the beds are literally so comfortable you might never get out. I’m talking breakfast and Netflix in bed by morning, exploring town by day, and s’mores by the fire pit by night. 

Oh, and did we mention there’s a whiskey distillery in town? Time to book your visit.

“It’s the mooooost wonderful tiiiiiime of the yearrrrr!”

Yes, some would say that’s a Christmas song… but we’re pretty sure it’s referring to the month of October. This week we were thrilled to attend The Glow in Nashville – aka the best jack-o-lantern display we’ve ever seen. You wind around a field covered in spectacular vignettes decorated by carved pumpkins. Some of these you wouldn’t even believe are actually pumpkins. I mean, look at that motorcycle. 

You don’t have to dress up, but Emily and I insisted on wearing some of our fav skeleton wardrobe staples. Be sure to follow along on our Instagram and Insta story (@wanderlustgirls) for real-time updates of our spooky outfits and Halloween activities for the next week. If you find yourself near Nashville, Philadelphia, or D.C. in the next week, be sure to check The Glow out for yourself!

Two Roads Brewery – 1700 Stratford Ave, Stratford, CT 06615

By now you’ve probably realized something… it’s our mission to tour as many wineries and distilleries as we can, both domestically and internationally. It’ll come to no surprise that we’re adding breweries to that boozy bucket list! You’d think by having family in Connecticut for my whole life I would have known about Two Roads Beer. In fact, I was at a dive bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn when I saw a beer tap that read Stratford, CT. I had to know more.
