Tennessee has so much to see and do that it’s hard to know where to start. If you find yourself in the eastern part of the state, you can ramble around the Smokey Mountains or hike the Appalachian Trail. You can check out the Choo Choo in Chatanooga, practice your layups at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, or catch a show at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. In the middle part of the state lies its capital, Nashville, a stronghold of musical creativity where the Grand Ole Opry has kept toes tapping for over 80 years. The General Jackson Showboat, the world’s largest of its kind, offers midday and dinner cruises featuring live performances by the Shotgun Red Show. In Lynchburg you can sample Jack Daniel Whiskey at the country’s oldest registered distillery. Memphis, Graceland and the National Civil Rights Museum are all located in the western region of the state, which is bordered by the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers. Sporting life abounds in Tennessee, with opportunities for horseback riding, golf, fishing and hunting across all parts of the state. Fiddler’s Grove is a preserved historical village in Lebanon that offers a glimpse into the earlier days of life in Tennessee, including the McFarland Infirmary, built in 1919.
