Exploring the Beauty of Tennessee

When you think of amazing places with lots of beautiful sites to see and explore, perhaps you think of Paris, Venice or Bali. These are some foreign climes which are renowned for its great allure all over the world. You probably would not think of a state like Tennessee, but to overlook the Volunteer State would be to make a mistake. It is actually an amazing place with lots of awesome and awe-inspiring places of great beauty. Here are just some of them:

The Great Smoky Mountain National Park

You simply cannot travel to Tennessee without spending some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina. The most popular national park in the United States is not only the place to see prehistoric trees. There are impressive and romantic mountains and a whole host of stunning wildlife. It is also the place to get active in the great outdoors with horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, cycling and camping activities all available within its bounds.

Reelfoot Lake

Reelfoot Lake in Samburg is the only considerable natural lake in Tennessee and what a lake it is! It was formed by a number of earthquakes that took place along the Madrid fault in the early 19th century, which made the Mississippi River flow backward and fill up empty land in Tennessee. It is home to a number of beautiful bald cypress trees, bald eagles and lots of excellent fishing opportunities.

Winged Deer Park

Winged Deer Park is located in the Johnson City area, which is also home to the luxurious Fairfield Inn & Suites Johnson City. Winged Deer Park is a pretty little spot with lots of lovely flowers, some fantastic views, and picturesque walking trails. It also has batting cages for those of you who like to combine pretty landscapes with something a little more active. It can get quite busy at times, but if you are looking for a little tranquillity within the city, it is the place to be.

Ruby Falls

Ruby Falls in Chattanooga is a stunning 145-foot waterfall. It is unique because it is situated a staggering 1,100 feet below the surface of the earth under Lookout Mountain. That makes it the deepest waterfall that you can actually visit in the United States, making it one of those natural attractions that you will never forget.

Burgess Falls State Park

Burgess Falls State Park is home to some of Tennessee's prettiest views and is a popular place to picnic. Of particular note are the powerful waterfalls that are dotted around the grounds of the park. This is why if you visit, you should certainly take a trip along the River Trail/Road Loop to take full advantage of them. If you are a keen fisher, you won't be disappointed by the opportunities there either!

The Lost Sea

Located at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains this underground lake measures a staggering (almost) five acres, making it the biggest lake of its kind in the USA. Pretty crystal anthodites and impressive stalactites and stalagmites make it a must-see location, especially from the vantage of a glass-floored boat with The Lost Sea Adventure company.

Time to take a trip to Tennessee? If you value beauty, it sure is!
