Flights to Tennessee take travelers to heart of rock and roll, blues, country and soul music. In Nashville, the Grand Ole Opry still broadcasts live every Friday and Saturday night. Elvis Presley’s Graceland home is located in Memphis and is the second most visited house in the country (the White House ranks first). Nashville is known as the country music Mecca — the $2 billion-a-year music industry keeps visitors booking flights to Tennessee every year.

But as the music played on, Tennessee saw its share of turmoil. Memphis is also the site of the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Dr. was killed in 1968. The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis preserves the motel and provides visitors with a history lesson of the American Civil Rights Movement. Book flights to Tennessee to see this beautiful, historic state, and to find your place amid the music.

Peak Season:

Summer is the peak tourist season in Tennessee, especially in Memphis and Nashville. Nashville attracts six million visitors a year, most of them in summer, so book flights to Tennessee and hotel reservations ahead of time. Summer is also the time for folk, crafts, art, and music festivals; sporting events; and state and local fairs.

The Great Smoky Mountains attract more than ten million visitors a year, most of whom arrive in midsummer, again in October for the foliage and winter for snow activities. Travelers looking for cheap flights to Tennessee, especially during peak-season in the Smokies, should plan well in advance.

Off Season:

Spring and fall are great times to visit Tennessee and usually when travelers can find cheap flights to Tennessee. The weather is mild with low humidity and there are fewer crowds. Late March to mid-May in the Smokies brings out the bloom of many species of delicate wildflowers. The crowds pick up again for the mountain foliage in October, but September is quieter.

Except for the snow resorts in the mountains, winter is the slowest time in much of Tennessee.

What is the best way to travel around Tennessee?

Unless you are staying in a city, you will need a car in Tennessee. Eastern Tennessee is mostly rural and the best way around the region and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is by car. (In summer make sure to carry extra coolant and brake fluid.) Cycling is also popular as is hiking in the the Smokies.

There is bus service to major towns and cities, but service to smaller towns, particularly in the east, is difficult to find. Tennessee flights between Memphis and Nashville tend to be pricey, as do cruises on the Mississippi riverboats.

Both Memphis and Nashville have walkable downtown areas and public transportation. Graceland can be reached by bus from Memphis. The city also has taxis, and driving is an option. Parking is generally available in Memphis, but there can be lots of congestion on east-west streets and during rush hour. Nashville also has the free LunchLINE shuttle that loops around downtown and several points of interest. River taxis run between Nashville and Music Valley and Opryland.
