Nashville

Music City U.S.A.

Known as the capital of country music, the thriving city of Nashville combines old-world southern charm with a progressive urban flair.
Discover out-of-the-way places like The District and Corsair Distillery & Taproom. Step out of Nashville to go to Tullahoma and see Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., Home of George Dickel, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, learn about winemaking at Natchez Hills Winery at Fontanel, get a taste of the local shopping with Smith Creek Moonshine, and sample the fine beverages at Prichard's Distillery.

The Volunteer State
Divided by law, geography, and custom into three major regions, represented by the three stars on state's flag, Tennessee boasts a distinctive musical heritage that includes elements of bluegrass, country-western, and blues. With a countryside as diverse as its people, Tennessee includes landscapes ranging from a mountainous region in the east to the lowlands of the west, with gently rolling hills in the middle. For a well-rounded vacation, you can hike remote mountain trails in the morning and explore the crowded bars of Nashville in the evening. Visit the urban attractions, such as Elvis Presley's former residence in Memphis, but don't miss a chance to spend some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, situated in the eastern part of the state.
