Life is VOL-untary in Tennessee. From the Great Smoky Mountains of the east, across the craterous
Cumberland Plateau in the middle, on west to the Mighty Mississippi River, you will discover world class
entertainment, amusement parks, sporting events, music, golf, waterfalls and inspiring historic sights from one
end of the Volunteer State to the other. Within a day's drive of almost two thirds of the US population,
Tennessee is the most beautiful and diverse travel destination in the country.
Flourishing with majestic natural beauty, attractions, athletics and more weddings than anywhere this side of Las
Vegas, East Tennessee also possesses some of the best outlet shopping in the southeast. You will find
accommodations ranging from comfortable mountain cabins, welcoming bed & breakfasts, charming campsites,
family operated motels and luxury hotels. East Tennessee has long been home to a plethora of attractions,
featuring the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the country's largest collection of artisans in Gatlinburg's
Arts & Crafts Community, Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, the International Storytelling Center, Ripley's Aquarium,
the Knoxville Zoo and the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Just south, Ruby Falls, Rock City, the Chattanooga
Choo-Choo and the Tennessee Aquarium anxiously await your arrival. In every historic community, East
Tennesseans are looking forward to making your vacation a memorable experience.
There is a place where music lives. A place where music is born and raised until it is old enough to travel the
universe on its own. The place where people don't just talk about songs, they live the lyrics to the rhythm of life.
That magical place is Nashville, but her friends just call her Music City. The sounds of Middle Tennessee can
also be heard in the cheers and jeers that ring from LP Field during a Tennessee Titans game, or the lionous
roar of the Nashville Super Speedway. Between the sports and concerts, explore the outdoors along antebellum
trails that line the historic battlefields of Nashville or nearby Franklin. Make a toast during your tour of two of
America's favorite whiskey distilleries, Jack Daniel and George Dickel, or reflect upon the accomplishments of
musical legends past and present at the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole
Opry. Few experiences are as romantic as viewing the city at night from the Cumberland River on the General
Jackson Showboat. Once you visit Middle Tennessee, you won't ever want to go home.
There are few cities in America with as much cultural heritage as Memphis. Nowhere else will you find a city
happy to have the blues. Embraced by the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers, West Tennessee offers the
nightlife of BB King's Beale Street, the musical history of Sun Studio, Elvis's Graceland, and the Stax Museum of
American Soul. Civil War grounds and the National Civil Rights Museum offer a glance of Tennessee's rebellious
side. In addition to the celebrated Memphis nightlife and attractions, there's a great variety of irresistible cuisine
for everyone in the family. West Tennessee continues to be a living portrait of Tennessee's individuality.
Life is definitely VOL-untary in Tennessee!
