Tennessee in a nutshell
Three Regions of Tennessee
The three stars on Tennessee’s state flag represent the three glorious regions in our beautiful state.
West Tennessee – Enlivened by river towns and gracious Southern hospitality, West Tennessee is also host to the second most visited home in the United States, Graceland, home to Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n Roll.
Middle Tennessee – Holds the thriving state capital, along with horse farms and picturesque rural communities. Also home to the longest running radio show in the world, the Grand Ole Opry and the NFL’s Tennessee Titans and NHL’s Predators.
East Tennessee – Offers an Appalachian holiday with spectacular mountains and homefolk as colorful as autumn leaves in the Smokies. Headlined by two internationally known aquariums and the Bristol Motor Speedway.
