Welcome to the Volunteer State

Tennessee is an absolute paradise for tourists! Over 600 tourist attractions, more festivals than you can count and, in addition, the numerous state parks and of course the Great Smoky Mountains National Park – the most visited national park in the entire United States.

But if there’s one theme that can be applied across the state, it’s music! Above all, the capital Nashville is to the music industry what Hollywood is to the film industry. Tennessee is the home of the honky tonk and country music – and you’ll feel it everywhere you go.
