Tennessee’s State Parks Were Named Some Of The Best In The Nation, And These 7 Parks Highlight The Reasons Why

In 2019, the National Recreation and Park Association recognized Tennessee as having some of the best state parks in the entire country, and we couldn’t agree with them more. From the mountains of East Tennessee to the waterfalls of the Cumberland Plateau and the bluffs of the Mississippi, Tennessee has some of the most stunning places you’ll find anywhere in the country. We compiled some of our favorites that highlight all of the reasons Tennessee deserves its recognition, and we think after seeing these pictures you’ll agree, too. Check them out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
