Private jet charter from Missouri to Tennessee
Visit Tennessee and it’s likely you’ve set aside time to soak up the state’s music history. You’ll also want to taste a particular world-famous whiskey native to the area and take in the sights of the Great Rocky Mountains. But there’s a lot more to this state than its obvious attractions: Tennessee is also home to America’s largest underground lake, the Lost Sea. The speed, comfort, and convenience of a private jet charter from Missouri put you in charge of your destinations and schedule, which means you’ll get far more out of your Tennessee vacation than commercial flights allow.

Top places to visit in Tennessee
At first glance, this cave seems like nothing more than a wide split in the rock face on the Cumberland River, but Timothy Demonbreun's Cave is protected as a national landmark and the entrance guarded by steel bars. The small cave was used as a temporary home by French Canadian Timothy Demonbreun, the area’s first European ‘citizen’, as he plied his trade as a fur-trapper. He later built a more suitable residence and became a successful merchant and tavern keeper.
135 years of print history
Stop by Hatch Show Print in Nashville for a fascinating glimpse into America’s printing history. The oldest letterpress print shop in the U.S. was opened by brothers Charles and Herbert Hatch in 1879 and quickly became renowned for its balanced use of type, masterful composition and well-chosen graphics. Located directly behind the Ryman Auditorium, dubbed “the Mother Church of Country Music”, over the years the shop created countless iconic posters for America’s biggest country music stars. In 2013, it was relocated to the lobby of the Country Music Hall of Fame and continues today as a fully-functioning print shop, crafting over 150,000 posters each year in its own distinct aesthetic.
Montgomery Bell Tunnel
Head off to Kingston Springs in Cheatham County to see America’s first full-scale water diversion tunnel, carved out of the natural limestone using gunpowder and slave labor in the 1800s. The purpose of the waterway was to operate an iron forge to take advantage of the drop in river elevations in a bend in the Harpeth River, which today is a popular hiking and canoeing destination.
The legendary witch’s cave
According to southern folklore, the Bell Witch Cave in Adams was once home to an evil witch who still terrifies children at summer slumber parties when they dare each other to say her name three times into a mirror. Legend has it that in the summer of 1817, a witch began tormenting the Bell family on their Tennessee farm by screeching during the night, assaulting family members and poisoning to death family patriarch John Bell. The cave became part of the story when the Bell Witch, in a strange act of kindness, saved a boy who had fallen into a 500-foot-long karst cave. Today, cave explorers report unexplained phenomena and it’s generally agreed that the cave is the scariest place on the famous haunted farm.
