Nature & Outdoors
"Tennessee is a beautiful green garden, a rich, varied place with mile-high mountains, the grand Mississippi River and 19,000 miles of sparkling rivers."
Investigate the beauty, the mystery of Tennessee's natural spaces. Take advantage of unique settings, such as Reelfoot, a bald cypress-filled lake in northwest Tennessee, created by earthquakes, harboring over 56 fish species, many shore and wading birds.
Spy Fall Creek Falls, the single highest plunge eastern waterfall, laced with cascades, gorges, streams, virgin hardwoods. Great Smoky Mountains National Park, an International Biosphere Reserve, encompasses over one-half million acres, offering panoramic views, tumbling mountain streams and unspoiled forests.
