Tennessee is a southern U.S. state next to North Carolina on the eastern border and Mississippi on the southern side. To the East of Tennessee hiking enthusiasts will find adventurous mountainous terrain, and to the West are the banks of the Mississippi River. Amongst the more notable Tennessee cities worth exploring are Nashville, Memphis and Gatlinburg.
There are a few airports for visitors to land at on Tennessee holidays. Memphis International Airport is served by several airlines, as is the Nashville International Airport. Close to the Tennessee-Alabama border is the Huntsville Airport. Tennessee is five hours behind GMT, and has a subtropical climate with very little snowfall. The springtime could be a good time to visit Tennessee as its trees are in full bloom, and festivals such as the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest begin in Memphis during May.
During Tennessee holidays be sure to visit the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The top spots in the park include the Cades Cove area where visitors can find bears and deers, and Clingman's Dome which is its highest mountain. The Obed Wild & Scenic River is ideal for hiking, fishing, kayaking and canoeing. At the Craighead Caverns take a tour of the Lost Sea, the USA's largest underground lake which has an abundance of stalactites and stalagmites.
Nashville includes historic sites such as Fort Nashborough on the banks of Cumberland River. Take a walk around the Tennessee State Capitol, or visit the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville; one of the USA's largest museums. In Memphis there is the Mud Island River Park where visitors can visit the Mississippi River Museum. There are also boat tours of the Mississippi River. In Gatlinburg Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is home to a diverse selection of marine life, and the Gatlinburg Sky Lift provides an exhilarating ride into Crockett Mountain.
