About Tennessee

Tennessee is nestled between the Appalachian Mountains to the east and the Mississippi River to the west. The natural features that make up the state’s borders mean there’s no shortage of beautiful scenery and outdoor activities to be had.

Music is at the heart of what makes Tennessee a must-visit state. The state capital, Nashville, is nicknamed Music City and is known as the home of country music. Downtown Nashville is full of live music venues, recording studios, and museums honoring country music’s legends and stars. In the western part of the state, Memphis makes its music mark as the birthplace of Elvis Presley. A visit to Memphis would not be complete without a visit to Graceland, the home of The King.

Tempt your taste buds by giving some famous Tennessee dishes a try. In Nashville, hot chicken is where it’s at. This fried chicken with an edge will have your mouth watering and your brow sweating. In Memphis, barbecue is the star. The city’s signature slow-smoked pork with a slightly sweet vinegar and tomato sauce is savory nirvana.
