A stylish and affordable place to spend the night nearby is one of the most frequent requests we hear at Discovery Park of America. Especially among our guests who arrive without realizing just how much there is to see and do here. Now, thanks to three hotels near completion right next door to Discovery Park at Houser Creek Crossing, that wish will soon be reality.

Scheduled to open late Aug. 2019 are the new Sleep Inn and MainStay Suites by Choice Hotels and scheduled to open by the end of 2019 is the Holiday Inn Express & Suites. Each will have a private entrance to Discovery Park making a trip back to the hotel for a nap or time at the pool quick and easy.

You won’t have to wait for another exciting addition to the area. The Pavilion at Houser Creek is now open and ready to host events from farmer’s markets and concerts to weddings and family reunions. Built by Homestead Timber Frames, it’s one of the largest timber frame structures in Tennessee and provides an exciting, warm and inviting outdoor space. Every timber in this artisan timber frame structure was handpicked to ensure the highest possible quality to create a unique and fascinating venue that will no doubt become an iconic part of a visit to Union City.

Because of nearby Reelfoot Lake, a 15,000-acre biodiverse ecosystem created by a series of earthquakes in 1811 and 1812, the area has long been a mecca for hunters, birdwatchers and outdoor water sports enthusiasts. Today, with a new museum and heritage park, hotels, restaurants and wineries, a whole new audience is discovering all there is to see and do in Northwest Tennessee.
