More About Tennessee
Tennessee boasts a rich culture and history. Not only did bluegrass music originate in Bristol, a city in the northeastern part of the state, but the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville is the longest continually running live radio program in the world, broadcasting every weekend since 1925. Tennessee and its music scene have been home to many styles of music. Memphis' Rock n' Soul Museum and the Hunter Museum of Art, as well as Elvis Presley’s famous Graceland and his tomb, are just the beginning. Any lover of music must take a stroll down Beale Street, as it is known as the start of the Blues movement. Tennessee is also home of award winning BBQ. Done both saucy and dry, one must have BBQ no matter what region you visit. It is also home to the locally infamous meat and three restaurants, which consist of a choice of one meat and three sides, usually vegetables. These meals are traditionally served with sweet tea and cornbread. Although not suggested to be eaten daily, a trip to Tennessee is not complete without a try! These restaurants can be found quite easily with a search on the web, even better….a recommendation from any local won’t lead you astray. Outdoor recreation abounds in the Great Smoky Mountains and along the famous Appalachian Trail. You can tour America's largest underground lake, the Lost Sea in Craighead Cavers, an unforgettable experience. During the Civil War, more battles were fought in Tennessee than any other state, save Virginia. In fact, the only monument in the United States honoring both the Union and Confederate armies is located in Greenville at the Green County Courthouse. See the majesty, hear the music, and enjoy good eats in Tennessee.
