Tennessee Holiday and Vacation Travel Information

Description

Tennessee divides naturally into three "grand divisions" upland, often mountainous, East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee with its foothills and basin, and the low plain of West Tennessee.

Attractions

Tennessee is rich in U.S. history as well as natural history. In the central region of the state three nationally recognized Civil War battlefield sites exist: Fort Donelson National Battlefield, Shiloh National Military Park and Stones River National Battlefield and Cemetery. Natural landmarks within the region are the Tennessee River, which flows south from Kentucky, on the western perimeter of the region, into Alabama, then north again into eastern Tennessee. The Cumberland River flows through the northern reaches of central Tennessee, winding its way through Nashville. Natchez Trace Parkway is one of the biggest attractions in the area. It is an ancient pathway turned scenic highway that leads between Natchez, Mississippi and Nashville, Tennessee.

Eastern Tennessee is best know for the nationally administered properties in the region. The Big South Fork National River and National Recreation Area lies along the border with Kentucky, encompassing nearly 125,000 acres of scenic river valleys. Cumberland Gap National Historical Park also lies on the northern Tennessee border with most of the park in Kentucky. The eastern border of the state is protected from north to south. The Cherokee National Forest encompasses 625,000 acres of this area with the lands of Great Smoky National Park comprising the remaining border lands with North Carolina.
