Are you a nature person? If so, you’d be in absolute heaven out here in Tennessee. There are a million places to take pictures and reminisce on the wonder and beauty of the world – but we’ve spared you the time and trouble of finding them. Here are some of the best, without the trek.
12) Baxter Creek Trail
The best time of year to hike the trail is pretty much all year 'round - but bring a coat in the winter! Snow can get iffy.
11) Bledsoe Creek State Park
The reflection in that water just gets us - so clear, so clean. This place is a must visit, for sure.
10) Cherohala Skyway
Bald River Falls are located along the skyway, one that flirts with the Tennessee and North Carolina state line.
9) Clingman's Dome
The highest point in Tennessee absolutely has some beautiful views.
8) Cumberland River
The Cumberland River is memorialized in stories and songs, snaking its way through the belly of the state.
Jump on Ober Gatlinburg to get a really neat view of the city - hope you aren't scared of heights!
6) Honey Creek Trail
The caves that crop up along Honey Creek Trail are truly jaw dropping.
5) Natchez Trace Parkway
With over four hundred miles of driving distance, this is the opportune road for a trip through the state. It runs down to Mississippi!
4) Pigeon Forge
All the views in Pigeon Forge are great, if you manage to get up high enough. Can you believe this sunset?!
3) Roan Mountain
Come when the rhododendrons are flowering, an event that gets many people hustilin' out in late June.
2) Great Smoky Mountain National Park
Waterfalls and mountains and all the trails you can dream of reside in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and it takes the #1 spot as the most visited national park in America.
1) Lover's Leap
The famous Lover's Leap is in Rock City, and the view PLUS that gorgeous waterfall are sure to make a memory you won't forget.
