10 Epic Adventures Every Tennessean Must Take Before They Die
Tennessee is full of neat adventures, but every once in awhile we find ourselves sliding into the same routines. This is what we do in the summer, this is what we do in the springtime…bleh. Do you need a suggestion for the prettier months ahead? We have 10 of them – think you can knock them all out by Labor Day?
10. Take a weekend to
explore Tennessee waterfalls.
We've planned out an entire weekend for you, with great places to eat and places to stay the night.
There's a plan laid out, and
, so all you need to do is find the time. Grab some buddies and make it happen!
9. Try out an
epic zipline, for a change.
Wahoo Ziplines in Sevierville, Tennessee is a great place to visit during the warming months, touting themselves as "wildest zipline in the Smokies." You'll have to check it out and report back!
8. Take the ride of your life on
Gatlinburg's mountain coaster.
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is great for you and your little ones, perfect for folks of all ages. It's a seven minute ride through the beautiful foliage of east Tennessee, something you won't want to miss for the world.
7. Experience one of our most beautiful natural wonders -
Ruby Falls is a fabulous place to visit, a historic nod to the wonders that lie beneath ol' Rocky Top. Discovered in 1928, it has been living the good life as a native and tourist magnet since the 30's. You can take the tour during the warmer months, and enjoy the beautiful foliage on your trip to southern Tennessee.
6. Spend the night in a most
beautiful medieval wonderland.
Williamswood Castle is located in Knoxville, Tennessee and has 4,500 square feet of space that gives a nod to the Medieval age. The gorgeous decor just adds to the age-old atmosphere of magic and romance. You can rent by the night!

neat Tennessee adventure park you never knew was there.

Explore the Lost Sea on a glass-bottomed boat tour.
The Lost Sea is the largest underground lake in the United States, great for school tours or a bit of time out and about with the family. We'd recommend visiting on the off-hours, though - beat those crowds!
2. Take the
trip of a lifetime to the Jack Daniel's Distillery - it's only in Tennessee.
The Jack Daniel's Distillery is one of the most lauded locations in Tennessee - as a matter of fact, it helped put Tennessee on the map when it comes to worldwide recognition. Take a tour and buy some to go, because this distillery is located in a dry county. How interesting is that??
