Known as the Sports Capital of Tennessee due to its first-rate facili- ties, Murfreesboro hosts Spring Fling, the state's Olympics-style high school championships. Middle Tennessee State University's Murphy Center complex, where the events are held, recently under- went a $14 million facelift. For groups, the city offers an array of team-building options, includ- ing six public golf courses, three escape-room choices, an indoor climbing center, and foot golf, a golf-soccer combo. At 650-acre Stones River National Battlefield, where 23,000 died in one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles, competing teams can learn the many important roles involved in firing a cannon. In addition to walking tours, spas and cooking schools, spouses and postmeeting attendees can tour the multibillion-dollar Nissan North America Smyrna factory, maker of the all-electric Leaf auto- mobile; enjoy music and plays in the Murfreesboro Center for the Arts' 124-seat performance hall; and explore Cannonsburgh Village, a reconstructed 1830s to 1930s Southern settlement with a gristmill and a working blacksmith shop. Zany fun reigns at Lanes, Trains and Automobiles, a 50,000-square- foot family fun center with 24 bowling lanes, laser tag, bumper cars, and a restaurant and bar, and at Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar, with its high-energy sing-along audience participation and musical comedy.
