Tennessee’s National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, also known as the Smokies, is the most frequented national park in the United States. This park is an amalgamation of adventure and picturesque views and is among the state’s top tourist attractions. The park offers scenic drives, beautiful hiking trails, meadows, mountain views, wildlife, an observation tower with 360-degree views, rustic cabins, and camping grounds. A ski resort and an amusement park on the Ober Gatlinburg can also be accessed through a chairlift to enjoy numerous other activities offered year-round.
Graceland, the home of the great Elvis Presley, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state and draws hundreds of thousands of Elvis fans every year. It was named the Whitehouse of Memphis because of its popularity. For Presley fans, visiting this mansion is a dream come true.
The residence has remained unchanged since Elvis Presley’s death in 1977 and offers exhibitions and displays of his flashy costumes, cars, aircraft, and memorabilia. In addition, tourists can closely look into the singer’s life by visiting his living quarters, including the music room, TV room, and Jungle Den.
The Titanic Museum, Pigeon Forge
The Titanic Museum is one of its kind in the world. A museum tour makes you feel like RMS Titanic has come to life. Although it is not even half the size of the original ship, the same shape and a collection of more than four hundred artifacts make the visitors feel as if they have boarded the actual boat. A minimum of two hours are needed to tour the whole museum. The events can be followed chronologically, where you learn about the ship’s design and the artisans and laborers who constructed it.
