Tennessee’s Grand Canyon Of The East Looks Even More Spectacular In the Winter

Tennessee may be known for its country music, hot chicken and the home of Elvis, but it’s also a state that boasts some of the most incredible natural wonders in the American South. Whether you’re looking for the stretch of the Mississippi River to the western side of the state, or perhaps the craggy, snow-capped mountains to the east, there’s something for everyone here in the Volunteer State. The Tennessee River Gorge, however, is located right in the belly of Tennessee. Known as the state’s own Grand Canyon, it provides stunning views all year long. It’s perfect for hikers and nature lovers, and you can learn all about it below.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
