​Tennessee ​

When it comes to toe-tappin', holidays in Tennessee are off the scale. This is the home of the blues in Memphis, the capital of country in Nashville, and the birthplace of rock' 'n' roll. And it doesn't stop there. A long list of musical legends hail from Tennessee, among them Elvis, Dolly Parton and Aretha Franklin - and the state doesn't look like it'll be giving up its status as Music Central anytime soon.

Music is the rhythm Tennessee moves to, and catching a live set while you're here is a must. From bluegrass in the Smoky Mountains, to blues, jazz and gospel on Memphis' Beale Street, and country music in the honky-tonks of Nashville, there's sweet sounds everywhere. Big-name acts and the stars of tomorrow are all part of the mix, so get yourself a ticket to the Grand Ole Opry, or just follow your ears to to the nearest club.

There's other stellar music themed sights to see, like Elvis' home Graceland and the Country Music Hall of Fame - but holidays in Tennessee offer a lot else besides. So stunning are the Smoky Mountains that they're America's most visited National Park, while there's plenty to keep the kids happy too. The Pink Palace museums in Memphis, Pigeon Forge's Dollywood themepark and a ride on the Chattanooga Choo-Choo are all guaranteed to score a home run.

Like a bit of history? Then you won't be disappointed. Visits to battlefields like Shiloh will take you right back to the Civil War, while there's the story of the civil rights movement to discover in Memphis, where Martin Luther King was assassinated. You can even tour the homes of three former presidents: Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson and James Polk.

Tennessee is known as the Volunteer State. So why not volunteer for a great holiday?

Why not explore the following destinations in Tennessee


Memphis

The King of Rock 'n' Roll, that is. Elvis Presley's legendary mansion Graceland is right here in Memphis, and so massive is its popularity that it's the second most visited house in the States after the White House. Find out more >>


Nashville

It's all about slide guitars and Stetsons in the capital of Country music. Well, not all, because there's plenty going on besides: first-class museums, superb art, restful parks and historic plantation houses for starters.

Elvis

Walk in the King of Rock 'n' Roll's blue suede shoes on a visit to opulent Graceland. Tour the rooms where Elvis lived for 20 years and see a whole stack of memorabilia from costumes to cars and the King's record collection. Then head off to Sun Studios to pay homage at the place where Elvis recorded his first hit, and where a host of other artists got their start in the business.

Great Smoky Mountains

So-called because of the beguiling blue haze that sometimes shrouds their peaks, these ancient mountains and the 800 square miles of National Park that surrounds them are a place of outstanding natural beauty. You can hike, drive or ride horseback through this breathtaking wilderness to discover dense forest, rushing streams, cascading waterfalls and incredible plant and animal life.

Music City

No holidays in Tennessee are complete without some good times spent in 'Music City'. Nashville pulsates day and night with a whole spectrum of live sounds from gospel to jazz - although country is king. Cruise the honky-tonks of Lower Broadway for a night to remember or catch a concert at the famed Ryman Auditorium.

Jack Daniels

Take a tour of the Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg to discover the secrets behind Tennessee sour mash whiskey. During the visit you'll find out all about production methods, as well as hearing plenty of tales about 'Mr Jack' and sampling his invention. Don't expect to buy a shot in town afterwards though - Lynchburg is in a county that's been dry since the Prohibition era!

Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis in 1968 as the civil rights movement gathered pace. The museum that now stands on the spot where he died charts the history of that struggle, and represents something we can all learn from.
