Tennessee is like a playground packed with amazing experiences, rich history, and stunning natural beauty. Whether you’re grooving to the soulful beats of Nashville and Memphis or soaking in the peaceful vibes of the Great Smoky Mountains, this state has something for every kind of traveller. Here’s your fun-filled guide to some of the top spots in Tennessee that are calling your name!

Kick off your Tennessee adventure in Nashville, famously known as “Music City.” This place is buzzing with energy and culture. Visits to the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and the Country Music Hall of Fame are a must-do for any music fan. Just take a walk down Broadway, and you’ll hear live music pouring out of the honky tonk bars. But it’s not just about the music—Nashville’s culinary scene is on fire, too. From farm-to-table eats to classic Southern comfort food to Local brews, there’s plenty to make your taste buds happy.


Just a few hours west of Nashville, you’ll find Memphis, the city where blues, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll come alive. Take a stroll down Beale Street and let the music sweep you off your feet. If you’re an Elvis fan, visiting Graceland is a must—his legendary home is packed with memorabilia. And don’t miss the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel; it’s a powerful and moving tribute to America’s civil rights journey. Be sure to experience the mighty Mississippi with a scenic walk or hop on a riverboat cruise. Don’t miss out on trying some mouth-watering ribs at places like Central BBQ or Rendezvous.

Pigeon Forge

Situated in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge is your go-to spot for family fun. This town is famous for Dollywood, the famous theme park owned by country music legend Dolly Parton. With exciting rides, fun shows, and cool crafts, Dollywood really captures that Appalachian charm. But that’s just the start! Pigeon Forge is packed with other attractions like dinner theatres, go-kart tracks, giant ferris wheel and the Titanic Museum, where you can dive into the fascinating history of the famous ship. Pigeon Forge promises a great time for the whole family!

Great Smoky Mountains

Straddling the border between Tennessee and North Carolina, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is America’s most visited national park, drawing millions of visitors annually. Known for its mist-covered mountains and diverse wildlife, the park offers over 800 miles of hiking trails, ranging from leisurely walks to challenging backcountry treks. Cades Cove, a verdant valley surrounded by mountains, offers opportunities to spot wildlife such as black bears, deer, and wild turkeys. The park’s lush forests and cascading waterfalls make it a perfect destination for nature lovers.


Chattanooga, located in southeastern Tennessee, is known for its picturesque landscapes and outdoor activities. The Tennessee River winds through the city, offering stunning waterfront views and activities such as kayaking and river cruises. The Chattanooga Choo Choo, a former train station turned hotel and entertainment complex, provides a unique lodging experience. For panoramic views, visit Lookout Mountain, where you can explore Rock City, Ruby Falls, and ride the Incline Railway, the world’s steepest passenger railway.
