Things to do in Tennessee
Nestled between the Great Smokey Mountains and the valleys of the west, Tennessee is an outdoor enthusiasts dream. Hiking, biking, camping, fishing, rafting or just enjoying a day at the lake are all popular. Be sure to take a ride or walk on the Appalachian Trail.
Of course, no mention of Tennessee is complete without the mention of country music. The Grand Ole Opry, Dollywood and a tour of Elvis' Graceland are a must.
If you are interested in history, take a tour of one of the many civil war sites scattered throughout the state.
