Most Scenic Road Trips in Tennessee

Aside from a wealth of well-maintained and visitor-friendly historical sights, Tennessee is also chock full of breathtaking natural beauty ranging from verdant forests to soaring mountains. Because of this, it can be hard to choose just one route. However, if you can tear yourself away from the hustle and bustle of Nashville and Memphis, here are three great road trips in Tennessee.

  • 1. The Snake Trail

    Starting out from Mountain city, 'The Snake' is a popular road trip for motorcyclists in particular. It passes through Shady Valley, a high-elevation wetland area that is home to unique plants and wildlife, Backbone Rock, the shortest tunnel in the world and a beautiful rock formation in its own right, and Cherokee National Forest, filled with flowing creeks and lush forests.

  • 2. Cades Cove Loop

    For those looking to take things a little slower, this 18 km stretch of road is ideal. Probably the most scenic road trip on this list, expect to find wildflower meadows and rolling hills. Activities include a chance to visit a working mill and a number of restored buildings. Wildlife is another big feature so keep your eyes peeled for white tail deer and black bears. The single lane highway forces vehicles to take it slow giving you a chance to take it all in at a laid-back pace.

  • 3. Antebellum Trail

    A must for history buffs, the Antebellum trail is a 145 km journey that has more than 50 different historical sites along its route, including the Andrew Jackson Hermitage, home of the former US president, and the beautiful Belmont Mansion.
