    In the South East of the State, discover the beauty and adventure of the Great Smoky Mountains, America’s most visited National Park, then get back to the music with a trip to Dollywood, the country and western inspired theme park a stone’s through from where Dolly Parton, an American national treasure, grew up.

    Getting Around

    As with most American states, travelling around Tennessee is best done by hiring a car, hitting the open road and driving between cities yourself. For those who don’t wish to drive, there are regular buses and flights between the major cities. There is no option for rail travel to the central or eastern parts of the state.

    In Nashville and Memphis, you will find public transport in the form of buses, trains, and taxis, plus some hotels run shuttle buses to the down town areas.
