Tennessee at a Glance

Chattanooga, Tennessee - Compare Hotels

Chattanooga, Tennessee

Its location two hours from Atlanta, and its proximity to Alabama are, in part, what draws visitors to Chattanooga.

Long known for its famous railroad attraction -- the Chattanooga Choo Choo and its adjoining hotel -- this city on the Tennessee River is the kind of place where there is a lot to do and see, and people are always visiting. But, unlike a more hectic tourist venue, think Savannah, Georgia, the city of Chattanooga just hardly ever seems all that full.

Rated one of the top 25 Festivals in the Southeast, Riverbend takes place the second week of June; it’s a nine-day party with music, food, and family events.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee - Compare Hotels

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

In addition to cabins, Gatlinburg offers a range of hotel accommodations -- from the Microtel Inn to the Park Vista Resort Hotel. Other brands include the Clarion and Fairfield Inn.

Many visitors to Gatlinburg opt to stay in private, mountainside cabins and chalets. These two- and three-level cabins are equipped with fireplaces, Jacuzzi’s and kitchens. Cabins are a great choice for families, honeymooners and those just in need of a weekend escape.

Gatlinburg is the resort for all seasons, whether it’s Winter and you come to ski Ober Gatlinburg, Summer and you stroll, shop, and check out the art offerings, Spring and you’re into heavy-duty hiking and nightlife or Autumn when the leaves are gorgeous.

Knoxville, Tennessee - Compare Totals

Knoxville, Tennessee

A center of nightlife, business, and home of the University Tennessee’s sprawling Knoxville campus, the city is also an arts center and shopping paradise.

With Neyland Stadium, recently named the top college stadium in the country by The Sporting News, and the delights of Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg only a short scoot down the highway, Knoxville is a busy portal to east Tennessee.

With the exception of a few wet, cold weeks in Winter, Knoxville is pleasant year-round, with Spring and Summer being especially seductive for travellers who like outdoor activities.

Memphis, Tennessee - Compare Hotels

Memphis, Tennessee

While downtown is the centre of Memphis' nightlife, visitors will find accommodations throughout the city offering the full range of prices and services. Those who wish to avoid the hustle of downtown often stay in the Midtown area, where funky neighbourhood clubs and art galleries flourish.

The Home of the Blues and birthplace of Rock 'n Roll attracts visitors from around the world. They come to pay tribute to the King of Rock n' Roll and experience the secrets of Beale Street, but discover that the Bluff City has more to offer than just its musical heritage.

Memphis is a heavily touristed city with many attractions from Graceland to Mud Island. In June, July, and August the city is crowded and the heat is sweltering.

Nashville, Tennessee - Compare Hotels

Nashville, Tennessee

Every area of Nashville has its own unique attractions and a variety of lodging accommodations - both in price and type.

If you love music, you're definitely going to love Nashville! Although the city is rather spread out, properties are concentrated in three main areas: East Nashville, which covers the Opryland area; Midtown Nashville, near 'Music Row'; and Downtown Nashville, which includes the business district.

Most people travel to the Music City between May and September. Sure, it's hot, but it's the best time to go if you want to see the best of Nashville.

This popular weekend retreat is famous for authentic cabins and alpine chalets nestled atop lush ridges of the Smoky Mountains.

Lookout Mountain, Tennessee

Fairytales Do Exist in Tennessee: by Jan McDaniel.

Gnomes frolicking on a mountaintop sounds schmaltzy for the almost-twenty-first century, but in an era of theme parks and outlet malls, East Tennessee's Rock City Gardens with its sculptured fairy tale figures, caves, waterfalls, suspension bridge, and panoramic seven-state overlook, preserves its original down-home charm to inspire nostalgia for simpler times.

Memphis, Tennessee

Blues & BBQ - Southern-Style: by Robin Treece-Winston.

Memphis, Tennessee is a city not content to merely thrive and flourish; the people here know how to live, and living life to its fullest involves the ability to dance and sing into the early morning hours to the tunes of B.B. King and Muddy Waters.

Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville: Music To Your Ears: by Michael Quinlan.

There's no denying that Nashville, Tennessee is Music City.

There's More to Nashville Than Music: by Rita Cook.

It's the little piece of history that many people admire about this quaint little city, and there are a few old homes that offer daily tours. Nashville is also a great place to Tour Historic Tennessee; visiting southern plantations, Presidential Estates and Civil War sites.
