Tennessee Holidays

Holidays in Tennessee offer music, natural beauty and fascinating culture, backed by the breathtaking slopes of the Great Smoky Mountains, home of the legendary Appalachian Trail for scenic hikes among ancient woodland.

Music fans will feel at home in Nashville’s honky-tonks or in the blues bars on Beale Street in Memphis. Explore the state’s rich musical heritage along the Tennessee Music Pathway, stop in at the Tina Turner Museum in Brownsville, join candlelit vigils in honour of Elvis at Graceland or visit the Dolly Parton theme park in Pigeon Forge.

On a culinary level, Tennessee is a constant discovery of mouth-watering flavours and fresh seasonal dishes, from award-winning barbeque in Memphis and the iconic Loveless Café in Nashville which has been serving comforting home-cooked Southern favourites, like hot biscuits and country ham, for over 65 years to trendy farm-to-table restaurants and the booming local distilleries and brewhouse scene. While historically there are fascinating battlefield tours to uncover the secrets of the American Civil War.

Or why not combine Nashville and Memphis with the capital of jazz, New Orleans, for a music-filled journey through America’s soulful Deep South?
