Tennessee is synonymous with music, and for very good reason.
It was in this US state that country music as we know it was born, and nowhere is this more evident than in the city of Nashville, the worldwide capital of country music. Here you can visit famous venues such as the Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry, where country legend Hank Williams delighted audiences, and museums such as the Country Music Hall of Fame.
There's plenty of musical history in Memphis, too. As the place that Elvis Presley made his home, visitors can explore attractions such as the legendary Sun Studio, said to be the birthplace of rock 'n' roll, as well as the King's home, Graceland. A musical feast from Newmarket Holidays, Elvis fans explore the legend's history across Memphis, New Orleans, Nashville, and his birth town of Tupelo, Mississippi on one of our Elvis-themed tours of America's South.
As one of the state's top ten exports, Tennessee whiskey has a rich history
The golden liquid is now produced in both small independent and large, well-known distilleries across the state. Fans of the spirit can explore the Tennessee Whiskey Trail, which provides an overview of its history, as well as tasting opportunities.
While Memphis is best known for its tasty barbecue, traditional dishes such as fried catfish and biscuits with gravy can be enjoyed throughout Tennessee.
A visit to a historic restaurant or bar is a great way to unwind after those city or swamp tours. Among the local favourites are Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House, opened in 1908, and The Old Mill, which dates back to 1830.
