Murfreesboro, Tennessee has quite a bit to offer; the Stones River National Battlefield, where one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles was fought, one of only six antebellum era courthouses in the state, a town square right out of the Andy Griffith Show, restored Civil War era homes and loads of the famed Southern hospitality. It's also one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, with new restaurants opening daily and multiple hotels under construction. Murfreesboro is home to Tennessee's largest undergraduate university, Middle Tennessee State University. Being just 15-20 minutes southeast of Nashville, it makes an excellent base to explore both the Music City and points further south, including the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg.
