Aside from Whiskey, there is plenty of Wine and Vineyards. There is also a Tennessee Wine Trail! More my style.
Is a Local Favorite: Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine is a local favorite in Tennessee. Besides Moonshine's original flavor, several other flavors are available, including peach, blackberry, apple pie, and sweet tea shine.
A favorite to most Tennessee residents, MoonPies are an invention of Chattanooga Bakery, Inc. Per NPR, in 1917, bakery employee and traveling salesman Earl Mitchell asked a Kentucky coal miner at a company town his opinion on snack foods. The miner said he craved a graham cracker and a marshmallow combined, dipped in chocolate ... and the rest is history.
Tennessee BBQ is one of the best in the world. They are cooked slowly and dry, which makes them different from other BBQs. Add a Splash of Tennessee Wine or Whiskey, and you have arrived.
Once you move to Tennessee, one thing you'll get addicted to for sure is burgers. Tennessee residents are crazy about them pretty much any burger. I think they are literally on every menu, no matter where you go. And guess what? Here is a Burger Trail.
THE SMOKEY MOUNTAINS
The Great Smoky Mountains are among the oldest mountains on Earth. Their rich biodiversity is a remnant of the last Ice Age, when glaciers stopped their southward advance short of the Great Smokies, setting up a treasury of living things that would continue to diversify for thousands of years.
The Smoky Mountains get their name from the blue, smokey fog that covers the mountaintops. The Cherokee referred to the mountains as 'shaconage,' which means 'place of blue smoke.'
Of course, we all know it's about the music. Tennessee is popularly called the state of music covering all genres. It is the birthplace of iconic singers like Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley.
The birthplace of country music goes without saying Tennessee. This is where it all started. Most people here worship this genre from the bottom of their hearts.
If you are extremely passionate about Music, Whiskey, Moon Pies, BBQ, or Burger trails, you've found it! So much to do and explore! Tennessee is the state of dreams.
