Tennessee Cabin Rental: Get the most out of a Tennessee vacation
From Nashville to Memphis, Tennessee is filled with a variety of cultural, educational, and outdoor activities that appeal to everyone. Popular home styles throughout the state include traditional southern plantation houses to simple cabins, giving visitors a wide variety of options and the chance to enjoy flexibility and comfort that many travelers desire.
Flying in to Tennessee
Tennessee is well connected both domestically and internationally. Memphis International Airport and Nashville International Airport are the state's largest airports, with the latter having a direct flight to London, UK. Reach your Tennessee vacation rental in comfort and style with a taxi or a self-driven rental car. If you don't fancy this, then another ideal way to get around is with the super-convenient Greyhound buses.
Culinary Delights of the State
Don't leave Tennessee without savoring its diverse and exquisite Southern cuisine. There's the hot chicken and biscuits of Nashville, Memphis' world-famous smokin' hot barbeque, and Smoky Mountain Country Hams. Dine in style at the Rendezvous Restaurant in Memphis, which has hosted American presidents and other world leaders.
Tennessee's climate: Hot, humid summers and chilly mountain winters
Although the weather in Tennessee is generally warm and humid during summer months and mild in the winter, the diverse topography can cause wide variations in average temperatures. Areas of high elevations experience cold winter weather and snow.
Vacation cabins in and around the Appalachians are ideal for a cozy retreat in the chilly winter months, and are well-suited for visitors exploring the great outdoors. Conversely, hot summer temperatures, especially in the state's big cities, can make the convenience of a vacation rental even more appealing as a refreshing retreat from long days of sightseeing.
Things to Do and See
While in Tennessee, experience the grandeur of the Mississippi River that flows majestically through the state. Families will be thrilled by the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, known for their surreal fog and mist. Set out on the Appalachian Trail at the crack of dawn to enjoy sublime sunrise views. After all this physical activity, relax back at your Tennessee vacation cabin.
Other attractions that make it onto most itineraries include the Tennessee Aquarium, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and a customary cruise down the atmospheric Tennessee River Gorge. And why not sample a Jack Daniel’s Whiskey with the free distillery tours in Lynchburg?
Art and Culture
Discover the state's historic past at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, which recounts the Civil Rights struggle in America. Culture buffs will also love the Tennessee Trails & Byways and native culture explorations along the Cherokee Heritage Trails. Relive the Civil War drama as it unfolds along the Civil War Trails, which weave through the little towns of Shiloh and Chattanooga.
Tennessee recognizes its important historical legacy in being the home of three American presidents, namely Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage in Nashville, the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site in Greeneville, and Columbia's James K. Polk home.
Family Fun: Wild animals and even wilder thrill rides at Tennessee's top destinations
If family fun is a high priority, Tennessee has much to offer. With over 400 species housed on 70 acres of land, the Memphis Zoo will inspire wonder in children of all ages. Children will also marvel at the wide array of marine species housed at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. As one of the nation's best aquariums, the facility features exhibits of river habitats and ocean species from as far away as the South Pole. The IMAX theater housed here is also a popular destination.
After visiting the aquarium, visitors can spend the night at a Chattanooga vacation rental before visiting the Creative Discovery Museum, a children's museum offering interactive exhibits in the fields of music, art, and science. Less than a three-hour drive away is Pigeon Forge, where families can experience over 40 rides and a range of live entertainment options at the famed Dollywood theme park.
Tennessee Nightlife: From Beale Street to the Grand Ole Opry
Famous for the blues, Memphis is home to some of the best nightlife in Tennessee. Local music is king, and B.B. King's Blues Club on Beale Street is a popular place to start an evening in this booming downtown district. Visitors here are privy to bars and nightclubs of every type, including the Coyote Ugly Saloon. A smorgasbord of late-night food options is on offer throughout the city, including South of Beale, an eclectic joint that claims to be the city's first gastropub.
Travelers who prefer bluegrass to blues should head to Nashville, an epicenter of all things country. The famous Grand Ole Opry is an excellent starting point, before moving on to any number of live country music venues throughout the city. For a quieter evening, Rumours East offers up an extensive wine list and rotating exhibits by local artists.
With over a million visitors annually, a visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a must. Bears and deer roam freely through this World Heritage Biosphere Reserve, home to mystical, temperate forests.
Adventure enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice in Tennessee. There's hang-gliding from Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga and whitewater rafting on the Nolichucky, Ocoee, and Little Pigeon Rivers, as well as biking, canoeing, and camping opportunities in the various state parks. A good idea would be to rent a houseboat on one of America's most tranquil water bodies, the Dale Hollow Lake.
