Tennessee is the land of the great smoky mountains, boisterous honky tonks, and the infamous Graceland. While these things have made the southern state famous, there is so much more to Tennessee than meets the eye. There are not only spectacular lakes and rivers, but many more waterfalls to explore than you may realize. Luckily, all of these sites are well preserved by Tennessee’s fantastic State Park system.
