day trippin’ to Tennessee

Yesterday my husband and I took a day trip to Cummins Fall State Park in Cookeville, Tennessee. It is roughly 2 hours away from where we live in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Cummins Falls is Tennessee’s 8th largest waterfall and is 75 feet high. If you live in the South Central Kentucky area, I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place. 

I would consider the hike moderate in difficulty. It is 1.6 miles each way making it a total of a 3.2 mile hike. The hike starts out in the woods and takes you to the overlook of the waterfall. From there the nature walk travels down hill to the creek bed. This is where the hike gets fun! To get to the waterfall you must travel the creek bed about half a mile. Most of the time you are in ankle deep water. I was so happy with my decision to wear Chacos. At first I was nervous about wearing open toe shoes on a nature hike but they were perfect. They provided me with stability and comfort along the slippery rock path leading to the waterfall.

Once we made it to the waterfall the scenery was beautiful and breathtaking. The trees were green and in full bloom for all eyes to see. We were able to climb on the plateau of the waterfall and feel the mist of the cold water as it crashed down below.


I wanted to be comfortable on the car ride and during the hike so I wore one of my favorite Kentucky for Kentucky  tank tops and the basic yet versatile Nike shorts.


I knew at some point in time I would probably be getting wet so I opted for this cactus print one piece swimsuit from Asos. I scored this swimsuit earlier this summer for $35 and it is still available online! I’m a huge fan of cactus and succulent print fabrics this year so this swimsuit was a must have for me!


I love the coral color of this swimsuit. It is bright without being too in your face. The cut of this swimsuit is also comfortable and flattering on every figure.


I am so glad my husband and I took this day trip to Cummins Falls State Park. Exploring nature is one of our favorite things to do together. I’m excited to take another trip with friends and family back to this gorgeous place soon. Maybe next time we can even take a dog along for the ride with us!
