Go hiking in Chattanooga – it’s beautiful.
Listen to live music in either Nashville or Memphis.
National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis – plan for a few hours – there is so much information!
TENNESSEE THINGS TO SKIP IF YOU’RE CRUNCHED FOR TIME:
Tennessee State Museum in Nashville – lots of info, but not necessary.
Elmwood Cemetery – it’s cool if you’re into cemeteries, but totally not a must see if you’re crunched for time.
Overton Park – cool playground area if you need to feel like a kid again, but I’m sure they have playgrounds where you’re from as well…
Are there any other number related things or best’s or whatnot you’d like to know? Leave me a comment below!
