Upper Cumberland
Tourism Association
writer's Tour

This tour covered four days and four counties; Clay, Jackson, Macon, and Smith. The writers who attended were presented the beauty, history, and more popular destinations in these areas of the Upper Cumberland. The local Chambers of Commerce in each county showcased a small part of what their county had to offer. There was so much more they would have shared had only the time been available. The images have been broken down by the day, not individual county, as so much area was covered in such a short period on any given day.
