East Tennessee

4.4
Luring travelers with its pastoral charm, delicious cornbread, and bluegrass music, East Tennessee remains mostly a rural region of small towns, rolling hills, and lush river valleys. Best known for its music culture, Knoxville also serves as a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but Cherokee National Forest has just as much to offer in terms of hiking, camping, and rafting. Easygoing riverside city of Chattanooga draws visitors looking for a relaxed holiday with its pedestrian-friendly downtown, leafy waterfront trails, great restaurants, and fun craft breweries. With a carefully planned East Tennessee itinerary, you can enjoy the diversity of culture and nature both. Find what you're looking for from your East Tennessee holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy United States route planner.
