The state of Tennessee is steeped in musical tradition. No student trip to Tennessee is complete without stopping in Nashville! You might think Nashville is all about country music, but there are incredible displays of talent across all genres—however, the Country Music Hall of Fame is still a must see. Enjoy a phenomenal guided tour of the Ryman Auditorium while you’re in town. Originally a revivalist church, the Ryman was instrumental in the popularization of country music and is now a National Historic Landmark.
Adventure awaits in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Can you handle the thrilling coasters of Dollywood, set against the scenic backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Dollywood and the Dixie Stampede theater, an impressive live music venue, are both owned by country music superstar Dolly Parton, who lives just a few miles from Pigeon Forge. Nearby Gatlinburg offers more unique attractions, such as the Hollywood Star Cars Museum. It features cars such as the Batmobile, the Camaro from Charlie’s Angels, and Herbie the Love Bug.
In addition to its rich musical history, Tennessee offers breathtaking mountain views, miles of lakes and rivers (the state is trisected by the Mississippi River), and important ties to the history of the United States. Its unique involvement in the development of the United States—from its participation in the Civil War to the trade on the Mississippi and the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail—will create an unforgettable student trip.
