West Tennessee
Watch | The Fascinating Landscape
West Tennessee

Rich delta terrain covers the western third of Tennessees low, rolling landscape, extending from the Tennessee River to the Mississippi River. Memphis is the regions largest city. Northwest Tennessees Kentucky Lake is the largest man-made lake in the eastern U.S.

Southern and soulful, West Tennessee blends a raw, urban can-do spirit with rural charm, delivering its own rhythm of extraordinary experiences, iconic artists and diverse culture.

Friendly small towns plus a few larger ones along the Mississippi River punctuate the stories of West Tennessees legendary music, dramatic history and natural wonders.

Absorb the Memphis Sound as you explore Beale Street nightlife and the unrivaled music history landmarks: Elvis Graceland, Sun Studio, Stax Museum and Museum of Rock ‘n’ Soul. After sightseeing, your taste buds will thank you over a generous plate of West Tennessees barbecue or a crispy catfish platter.

Tread historic land on Civil War battlefields and at the National Civil Rights Museum. Enter a unique ecosystem at surreal earthquake-created Reelfoot Lake, a natural habitat for waterfowl and bald eagles. Indulge all your senses in West Tennessee.
