Don’t leave without seeing the Smoky Mountains from the peak of a 21-story roller coaster.

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.

Once you’ve explored waterfalls, caverns and wildlife refuges, make new friends at our aquariums and zoos.
