Murfreesboro Guide: Where to Eat, Drink, & Live | Crescent Homes Blog
Crescent Homes in South Carolina

A Historic Gem Just Outside of Nashville


Just 30 minutes from downtown Nashville and convenient to the Nashville International Airport is the thriving regional hub of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  Steeped in Civil War history and bursting with vibrant lifestyle, Murfreesboro melds modern city with small town charm in Rutherford county. Throughout the community is a 12 mile Greenway System with paved paths and trailheads offering pedestrians and bikers safe and easy access throughout, while the Stones River snakes its way through the center of the city.  Residents of Primm Springs are zoned for the “Triple Siegel Schools:” Erma Siegel Elementary, Siegel Middle School, and Siegel High School.

Eat & Drink


Southern comfort food (think: meat and three) and good ol’ live music define this Middle Tennessee staple with five locations (and a trolley food truck for catered events!). It all started as a local grocery store in the 50’s, but now serves as restaurant, music venue, and general meeting place for locals and visitors alike.

Reeves-Sain Soda Shoppe

Step back in time at this classic pharmacy soda fountain. Box lunches, homemade soups, tasty salads, old-fashioned desserts and the town’s best milkshakes. Oh, and gifts, trinkets and a pharmacy of course.

Blue Cactus

This laid-back cantina serves southwest cajun fare like Crayfish and Spinach Enchiladas and 12 Spice Chipotle Mac N Cheese. Fresh ingredients and a lively atmosphere make this a local favorite.

Five Senses

Expect a fine dining experience and innovative menu from the brother/sister team behind Five Senses, who aim to bring a “fresh, healthy, and local approach to dining.”
