The heart of the country music scene, Tennessee is a blend of lively cities with vibrant music scenes, and small towns where you'll enjoy friendly southern hospitality.

Don't forget the smaller cities of Knoxville, with the lively downtown area of Gay Street, and Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, an underground waterfall that makes an unforgettable day out.

Activities

Things to do near Tennessee vacation homes

Covered in dense green forest, the Smoky Mountains area is full of hiking trails for all abilities. Deep Creek has a 2-mile trail that takes you past 3 waterfalls, climbing across rocky trails and well-worn forest paths. During the summer, you'll see lots of people lazily tubing down the river, or cooling off in the swimming holes. For the best view of the mountains, visit Clingmans Dome, the tallest of the Smokies. Walk up the spiral pathway to the top of the observation tower, and on clear days you can see across the mountain tops and the national park.

Weather

Best time to travel to Tennessee vacation homes

Tennessee has famously hot and humid summers, often reaching the 90s between July and August, and often leading to thunderstorms at night. You might prefer to look for Tennessee vacation rentals in the spring or fall, when the weather is a little more comfortable, and you can enjoy warm, sunny days. Winters are mild, with rainfall usually not lasting too long, and hurricanes rarely reaching the state. The Smokies are usually a little cooler than the city, and even have a short skiing season, which is popular with families and beginners.

Natural features

Discover Tennessee's mountains and forests

The Smoky Mountains are probably Tennessee's most famous natural attraction, but they're not the only national parkland in the state. Nantahala National Forest borders on Tennessee, with winding waterfalls, serene rivers for tubing and long hiking trails through the dense forest. Big South Fork sits on a bend of the Cumberland River, and is popular for fishing, hiking and horseback riding. With a rocky terrain, you'll often see climbers taking on the challenging drops found around the park, and the winding rapids make fun for whitewater rafting, taking you through the twists and turns of the river at high speeds.

Food and drink

Culinary culture in Tennessee

Tennessee cuisine is all about indulgence, often featuring hearty, rich dishes like fried chicken and biscuits, country ham and grits, and Memphis dry-rub barbecue. One of the unique specialties of the state is a deep-fried pie with apples, peaches, or berries. Whatever your taste, you can experience the rich Southern cuisine of Tennessee in a restaurant or eatery near your vacation rental.
