For many, Tennessee is about music. But the “Volunteer State” has an appeal that goes well beyond its melodic heritage...
Many of Tennessee’s visitor attractions centre on the music that was made famous within its borders. However, this proud region – the Union’s 16th state – has plenty more going for it. But, as most Elvis fans would say, you can’t ignore the music.
Memphis is as connected to Elvis Presley as much as rock and roll itself. This is why hundreds of thousands of fans make the pilgrimage to Graceland and the Sun Studios. If you’re considering car rental in Tennessee, know that Memphis city centre is less than a 15-minute drive from Memphis International Airport.
Tennessee’s other great music mecca is Nashville – a three-hour drive north-east of Memphis. Here, in what is widely regarded as the world’s capital of country music, you’ll find its most famous venue – the Grand Ole Opry. You’ll also find one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the US with a fabulous collection of museums, art galleries and fine restaurants.
History buffs will delight at the wealth of offerings in Tennessee. The entire state is designated a Civil War National Heritage Area and home to five national civil war sites. This is something you may wish to raise a glass to courtesy of another of Tennessee’s famous exports – whiskey. You’ll find the Jack Daniels distillery just an hour and a half south of Nashville in the village of Lynchburg.
