Let’s imagine something right now – an experience we have all had once or twice. Picture being on a long drive. You have been in the car for hours. Your legs are starting to ache, and you just want to stretch out. Everyone is tired and exhausted from a trip. You know you are close to home, but the miles seem to drag on forever. Then a beacon of light appears, a wonderful sight: the Welcome to Tennessee sign!

With eight states bordering Tennessee, we have plenty of chances to see this bright and beautiful sign welcoming us back home when we leave. You may go far but our state is always waiting for you when you arrive home. In a bright and cheery way, the Welcome to Tennessee sign will be there to greet you on your return.
