The Appalachia Mountains make up the famous Green Hills of Tennessee. This stunningly beautiful country is a great place to come for a vacation or even just to spend a weekend. The Appalachia Mountains have plenty for lovers of the outdoors: fishing, hunting, hiking and camping. But there are also the great cities of Nashville and Knoxville. Guests staying in Appalachia Mountains hotels can easily take in the sites of these Tennessee cities. Nashville is the capital of Tennessee, so be sure to visit the State Capitol building. Of course, Nashville is the home of the Grand Ole Opry, which is a must-see. Also see the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Knoxville is the largest city in the Southern Appalachians. While there, see the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, the Blount Mansion and the Frank H. McLung Museum, which has fascinating displays concerning pre-Columbian Native life.
