Located in between Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains, Tennessee is a rectangular swath of land that boasts rolling hills and mountain peaks, hiking trails and swimming holes. The state is home to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, which preserves the Smoky Mountains and the old oak forests that surround them. Memphis is a prime destination for Elvis’s most devoted fans. Pigeon Forge is mile 0 for outdoor enthusiasts visiting the state, as it serves as a gateway to the park. Blue-gray peaks beckon any adventurer who arrives in Eastern Tennessee looking to enjoy hikes, bikes, or climbs in the spectacular environs. To the north, the Cherokee National Forest is Tennessee’s largest tract of public land, with 14 designated recreation zones on which visitors can enjoy just about every outdoor activity imaginable.
