There aren’t many places in the world that cater to both the youngest and oldest generations within a family when it comes to holidaying; Tennessee, however, does just that. It is a place where music, fun, nature and history are rife. Thus, this means everybody in a family, from young children right up to their elderly grandparents, can enjoy a holiday here. Below you can find a few of the ways you can keep your kids, yourself and your elderly parents happy on a trip to Tennessee.
No visit to Tennessee would be complete without a trip to the state capital, Nashville. And if you want to keep your kids happy and stimulated throughout your family holiday, then Nashville really is somewhere that you should visit. It is known as the ‘Music City’ — and this should tell you everything you need to know about. It is a fun, vibrant place that is full of fun for the family. There is the Nashville Zoo which plays host to a number of different species of wildlife, such as giraffes, alligators and even kangaroos. And as well as this there is the Zoo’s Jungle Gym, which has recently been named as one of the best playgrounds for kids to enjoy not only in the U.S., but in the whole world!
A family holiday is not about yielding to the demands of your children all times, however. It’s not about doing what they want all the time. It’s about the grown-ups on the trip enjoying themselves too. And a way for you, and any other adults who have joined you on the trip, to enjoy yourselves is to revel in the delights of the aforementioned ‘Music City’ of Nashville. Here you will find the Musicians Hall of Fame. Upon a visit here you will be able to truly immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of this part of the world. Upon leaving the museum you will feel better off for paying it a visit. And if you and your family are really into your music, specifically your country music, then why not head to the CMA Music Festival?
But a trip to Tennessee isn’t just about heading to Nashville. No, why not take a trip to Memphis, the home of ‘The King’ Elvis Presley, as well? If you are an Elvis fan especially, then a trip to his home, Graceland, is a must. Here, children and adults alike can learn about this hugely important figure in not only modern day music, but the modern western culture as a whole. But, bare in mind, Graceland is hugely popular tourist attraction, so you must ensure you are booked up before you turn up there. Otherwise, you might just be turned away.
For adults a trip to Tennessee is enriching for the mind and soul. And for your children it is place for them to have fun and create lifelong memories. So, what are you waiting for? Book your places on the next outbound flight to the Nashville International Airport and have the family holiday of a lifetime.
