Top Things to Do in Tennessee
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Discover America’s most visited national park, where black bears roam. Hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail or take the Clingmans Dome hike to the highest point in the park.
Make the pilgrimage to Graceland to pay tribute to Elvis. The National Civil Rights Museum is a moving testament to the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
Get into the Rhythm at Music City
From the Country Music Hall of Fame to the Grand Ole Opry and the Johnny Cash Museum, Nashville’s musical roots run deep.
Stay in Gatlinburg
The city’s proximity to the Smoky Mountains is this tourist town’s main draw, but Gatlinburg boasts moonshine tastings, nightlife, and the family-friendly attractions at Ober Gatlinburg.
Chattanooga has undergone something of a renaissance. Taste your way through the city’s incredible cuisine and craft beer.
