Totally enclosed in the region is the Upper Cumberland Plateau, a land of modern innovation settled alongside long forgotten country charm. Visit the plateau to experience down home Tennessee hospitality.
Nashville is the crown jewel of Central Tennessee and of country music. Don't miss the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry. Nashville also has plenty to offer the history buff, with its antebellum homes and historic battlefields.
Those with a sporting mindset can visit the Nashville Superspeedway, take in a Tennessee Titans football game or enjoy one of the many golf courses.
