Gordonsville isn't the only place in Central Tennessee worth experiencing; visitors can also take a day trip or two to experience the special qualities of the surrounding countryside, towns and cities. Lebanon, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Cookeville, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west of Gordonsville are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Once you've fully explored Gordonsville, visit the nearest regional area. Nashville lays 50 miles (80 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions including Music Valley Wax Museum, Parthenon and Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. If you're still looking for things to do, it's worth investigating Willie Nelson and Friends Showcase Museum, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Schermerhorn Symphony Center before heading back to Gordonsville.
