While it’s true that few things in life are free, you don’t have to shell out the big bucks to keep yourself and your family entertained in Spring Hill. Taking a drive through Tennessee backroads, heading outside for a walk or curling up on a bench with a good book are always options, but that’s barely scratching the surface of Maury County’s many activities. We’ve rounded up a list of free things to do in Spring Hill.
Take a self-guided battlefield driving tour
Spring Hill and its surrounding cities are rich in American military history, serving as a prominent battlefield during the Civil War. Embark on a self-guided driving tour through historic sites in Spring Hill—the preserved battlefield is located near Kedron Road and Reserve Boulevard with plenty of historic markers scattered throughout.
Visit Spring Hill’s parks
There’s no shortage of fun in Spring Hill’s parks, whether you’re looking for rest and relaxation or a spot to burn off some energy. Load up a picnic basket, grab your Frisbee and head to any of the city’s parks, from the large playground at Harvey Park to the splash pad at Fischer Park and the ball fields at McLemore and Evans Parks.
Stroll through the shelves at the library
Is there anything more nostalgic than a library? County residents have access to the Spring Hill Public Library for free. The membership comes with complimentary perks beyond book rentals, like access to audio and e-books, career resources for adults, test prep for teens and ongoing events for littles.
Hike at the Peter Jenkins Walking Trail
Lace up your sneakers and head out for a walk on Spring Hill’s Peter Jenkins Walking Trail, aptly named for the famed Peter Jenkins and his “walk across America.” The scenic walkway is located on 17 acres of community open space inside Wyngate Estates, routing adventurers through natural landscaping and past flowing streams, ultimately ending outside of Allendale Elementary School.
Visit Ghostlight Books
If you’re visiting from out of town but still looking for that bookish nostalgia, head to Ghostlight Books. This charming home-turned-shop located just off of Main Street is packed with best-sellers, timeless favorites and new releases, and while you’ll have to make a purchase to take one home with you, the bookstore offers free (or highly affordable) shows periodically through Midsouth Youth Theatre & Arts.
Browse the Spring Hill Antique Mall
Strolling the enormous Spring Hill Antique Mall is another way to pass the time while enjoying collections of heirloom pieces, art and much more. (To keep this one free, you may have to exercise some serious restraint—or leave your wallet home.) For added entertainment, visit with a friend and create whimsical stories about each piece’s origin.
Attend Spring Hill community events
The tight-knit Spring Hill community hosts regular free events to bring residents and visitors together for fellowship and fun. Spring Hill’s calendar of events will keep you informed on regular happenings, ranging from craft festivals to live music and outdoor movie nights throughout the year.
