From Memphis to Nashville and all of the small towns along the way, Tennessee offers a host of destinations that offer things to see and do for people of all ages. The state is known for its rich musical heritage, the role it played in black history and the famous country singers that have called it home.
Visitors have the opportunity to sample the state's flavorful and varied cuisine, explore the state's natural wonders and live the laid-back lifestyle that you can only find in the South. Whether you are coming from a neighboring state or are traveling from abroad, Orbitz.com can help you find low rates on airfare, accommodations and rental cars.
Tennessee's climate is typical of many southern states, although it varies slightly from the eastern part of the state to the west. Expect four distinct seasons, with hot summers and cool winters that occasionally see snow flurries. The fall is one of the best times to visit the state, as the crowds dwindle after school starts and the hot summer temperatures cool down. It's also the best time for travelers on a budget, as hotels, restaurants and attractions lower prices for the season. Spring is also a good time to visit Tennessee, as the days become warm but the nights stay cool. No matter when you decide to visit, remember to use Orbitz.com to look for bargain prices for your Tennessee travels.
Many people don't realize that Tennessee has spectacular fall foliage. The leaves start turning in mid-October and end in late November as you move east to west across the state.
Although there are plenty of mainstream museums across the state, Tennessee is also home to some that are very different. Make sure to visit the Museum of Salt and Pepper Shakers when you are in Gatlinburg, the Museum of Appalachia that chronicles paranormal events in Clinton and the International Towing and Recovery Museum in Chattanooga.
Tennessee is home to some of the world's biggest items. Leave some time on your travels to visit the world's largest guitar in Bristol, the world's largest tree house in Crossville or the world's largest teapot collection in Trenton.
Instead of heading to the nearest restaurant for authentic barbeque, attend some of the state's barbeque competitions and festivals. Have a taste of authentic barbeque at the International Goat Days Festival BBQ Bash in Millington in September or the World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest in Memphis in May.
Tennessee has its fair share of lakes to cool off summer visitors, but locals know that the best places to swim are found in the off-the-beaten-path swimming holes. Look for swimming holes near Abram Falls, Little Pigeon River in Greenbrier or the Little River near the Townsend intersection.
