Local Guide Where to Stay

Discover Tennessee

Tennessee is a one of a kind experience. Home to legends of country, rock n roll and blues; Tennessee’s music is the soundtrack of America. From the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville to Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee is where it all began and never stopped.

Beyond the amazing cities, you can discover the beauty and adventure of the Great Smoky Mountains, America’s most visited National Park. Experience the relaxation of driving through the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee with the top down, stopping to soak in the state’s storied history.

Getting Around

As with most American states, travelling around Tennessee is best done by hiring a car, hitting the open road and driving yourself between the cities. For those who don’t wish to drive, there are regular busses and flights between the major cities. There is no option for rail travel to the central or eastern parts of the state.

In the major gateway cities of Nashville and Memphis, you will find public transport in the form of busses, trains, taxis and in some cases hotels run shuttle busses to the down town areas.
