Tennessee Things To Do – Attractions & Must See

Places and Activities You Can Enjoy In Tennessee

Tourists that travel to the United States typically find themselves in the major cities and states. Tennessee is definitely a highly recommended state to explore  — here are a few tourist attractions you will absolutely love.

Forbidden Caverns

By the name “Forbidden Caverns” you may find your curiosity being sparked. Are you supposed to go here? What is the history behind the name? The Forbidden Caverns are located in The Smokey Mountains, which technically gives you a 2 for 1 tourist activity. Within this cave you will learn about the Native Americans and Geology (the science of the earth’s physical structure and substance).

This tour typically lasts about an hour long and is known to be extremely entertaining. While you are going to learn a lot of information, do not feel as if you have to be 100% serious. Have fun, be respectful of everyone, and enjoy the experience.

Beach Island Resort and Marina

In America the areas that are generally associated with beaches are either on the west coast or south coast (aka Florida). Nonetheless, in Tennessee you can enjoy the Beach Island Resort and Marina just like any other beach ar. You can enjoy fun things such as playing volleyball, getting a tan, relax on the beach, or rent out a pontoon boat.

When you rent out a pontoon boat, it is important that you have some type of experience operating boats. If you do not have any experience, feel free to ask around so you do not have to miss out on this opportunity. Once you are done relaxing, there is a casual restaurant on location you can get some amazing local food from.


Graceland is in fact a must see attraction in Tennessee for all tourists. If you are not aware of this, Graceland is the name of the mansion that once belonged to popular musician Elvis Presley.  The home is 15 minutes away from downtown Memphis, which you can explore after this.

This home has become a landmark in Tennessee and maintained to great quality. During this tour you will learn history about the location and of course Elvis’ career. On Elvis Presley Blvd there are a few shops where you can purchase unique souvenirs.
