Get out and about in Williamson County. 

There are few joys that compare to family time spent enjoying the great outdoors – especially in this day and age, when prying kids away from screens can be so difficult. Here are some recommendations from parents on some of their favorite outdoor family outings:

1. Arrington Vineyards

Not just for adults who love wine, Arrington Vineyards is an all-around gorgeous location with plenty of space the whole family can enjoy. Pack some food and a blanket and make some memories.

2. Flying Discs

Adults and kids have a blast trying to “throw like a pro” – a pro disc golfer, that is – at Liberty Park in Franklin. Tucked away within the park’s scenic woods, this course offers 10 holes that keep beginners and professionals on their toes.
