Do not miss
Nashville is the country’s country music scene and home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry. No visit to Nashville would be complete without visiting the Parthenon, a life-size replica of the original in Athens, and The Hermitage, the plantation home of the 7th US President, Andrew Jackson. If there is time left, take the Natchez Trace Parkway, on old Native American trail, that ends in Tupelo. As popular as the White House in Washington DC, Graceland is the top attraction in Memphis. It remains a place of pilgrimage to fans who bow before the family tomb or visit the house of the king of rock ‘n’ roll. At night they gather in Beale Street, for more music. Knoxville, seat of the University of Tennessee, is a good base to explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its more than 1400 km of hiking trails.
