Quality of Life
Best of both worlds.
With its location on the Upper Cumberland Plateau, Warren County is rich in natural beauty, outdoor entertainment and adventure, and natural resources that make life fuller and support local industries. A strong heritage in music and the arts is evident in the carefully restored Park Theater, the live music venues and downtown activities, and resources like Bluegrass Underground at the beautiful Cumberland Caverns.
More than 300 local plant nurseries speak to the county’s beauty and history, and the ISHA Institute of Inner Sciences— along with water sports—brings visitors from all over the world. Kayaking, national fishing tournaments, waterfalls, hiking and beautiful parks are gems in the county's outdoor recreation.
Relish the charm of historic downtown McMinnville, home to beautifully renovated buildings and the lovingly restored Art Deco Park Theater. Many local vendors and eateries are found between the antique streetlights lining the picturesque downtown streets. Festivals keep downtown McMinnville vibrant with live music throughout the year, and entertaining chef battles and food trucks keep the food scene full of delicious energy.
Music and Arts
Local music abounds in venues above—and below. Find music in The Lot and McMinnville’s five parks, the beautiful Park Theater and the incredible Cumberland Caverns. Downtown plays host to the Main Street Concert Series, children’s plays and other productions at venues throughout the county. And Nashville, with all its entertainment offerings, is just a quick drive away.
Back to Nature
Warren County is a nature lover’s paradise. Those who love water sports flock to Warren for fishing tournaments, especially anglers in search of the elusive muskie. Warren County has also been home to the World Kayaking Championships. McMinnville is known as the “nursery capitol of the south” and boasts six beautiful parks, including Rock Island State Park. Nearby is the world-famous ISHA Institute of Inner Sciences, featuring over 15 miles of hiking and waterfalls and an awe-inspiring 39,000-square-foot meditation hall.
