Sports & Recreation
Travel our adventure wonderland. Bike, hike or climb up hillsides and down mountains, paddle through rivers and lakes. Shoot, swim, or swing a driver. Gallop down a trail. Cheer for your team. Rev up for a race. Tennessee speaks the language of the sporting life.
#

Tennessee is famous for the outdoor playground of mountains and water as well as woodlands and trails. But dont overlook the team sports, the open ranges (golf, that is) or the blistering pace of the speedway.

Cast your line into some of the countrys best fishing holes. Get your feet—or your bike—moving on our greenways, or paddle our blueways for water fun. Test your skill on the fairways of our state parks, or challenge your shooting skills with clay targets or at an archery range.

Its always game day in Tennessee! NFLs Tennessee Titans take to the gridiron in Nashville, the NBAs Memphis Grizzles call FedExForum home and, NHLs Nashville Predators dominate Bridgestone Arena. Minor league baseball teams across the state swing for the fences. And, well get your motor running with our racetracks and off-road trails. Rev up in Tennessee for a vacation full of recreation!

Fishing on Reelfoot Lake

Fishing at this famous cypress-studded lake formed by the infamous New Madrid earthquake of 1811 is nothing short of legendary. Reelfoot is famous for its crappie fishing—the biting begins early spring. Fish shallow for bluegill, with jigs or minnows around the bases of cypress trees. You’ll find Reelfoot a source for plentiful bass, catfish and striped jacks. Be sure to get a good night’s sleep before you go.
