Outdoor Recreation | Tennessee Vacation

When its time to get out of the city and take in the great outdoors, theres no place like Tennessee, with its endless and varied landscape of lush mountains, meandering rivers, dramatic gorges, rolling farmlands, rushing streams and open vistas.

In every season, in every part of the state, Tennessee offers ample opportunities to enjoy the world of outdoor sports. Fish in a running brook or a calm, beautiful lake. Hike above a breathtaking ravine or backpack through cool mountain trails. Bike on wilderness paths or race along smooth trails. Camp by a lazy stream, get your thrills climbing a sheer rockface or zipping through the treetops, or just spend an easy afternoon playing games in the great outdoors.

Travel on foot or on horseback, by bike or on snow. You will be amazed by the beauty, variety and majesty of Tennessee. Take the road less traveled through Tennessee. You won’t regret it.

Hike, camp, cycle, golf, take off on trails or kick back with friends and family. If youre serious about rock climbing, were stocked up on challenges. Of course, there’s nothing like being on the water. Weve got kayaking, canoeing, rafting, boating and fishing all over Tennessee, just waiting on you.
