Tennessee Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Tennessee!
Known for its strong musical heritage, Tennessee spawned the careers of many famous musicians, including Elvis Presley. Elvis lived in Memphis in the Graceland Mansion, which today welcomes visitors to the mansion to pay their respects to the King of Rock 'n Roll in the Meditation Garden. Another well-known star is Dolly Parton, who has her own theme park called Dollywood in the Knoxville area. Other attractions in the area include the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is located in Gatlinburg. Country music fans will enjoy a visit to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, where live tapings of the longest running country music station can be seen and heard in a 4400-seat studio. Located in the south of Tennessee is Chattanooga, which is most famous for the Chattanooga Choo Choo. As well as a famous song about a train, the Choo Choo now refers to a restored railroad station that serves as a hotel and leisure complex.
