Take in wild rides, splendid scenery, legendary music and whiskey, larger-than-life heroes and even marching ducks. After all, its Tennessee.

Browse Tennessee’s incredible museums. Whether you’re a history buff, an art lover or a science enthusiast, you’ll see things you wont forget in museums that spotlight everything from natural history to cutting-edge technology.

Don’t leave without seeing the Smoky Mountains from the peak of a 21-story roller coaster. Try indoor skydiving, hit the slopes at a four-season ski resort or play hard on Tennessee’s golf courses and racetracks. If you prefer your fun on the water, we’ve got world-class water parks—oh, and the mighty Mississippi River. 

Tennessee’s best-known attraction is the wealth of natural wonders that await down every river road or mountain trail. You probably know we have bears, deer, elk and eagles, but did you know you can walk through a tunnel of sharks, reach into a stingray pool or watch pandas play? Once you’ve explored waterfalls, caverns and wildlife refuges, make new friends at our aquariums and zoos.
