Tennessee Tourism unveils 2020 Vacation Guide

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development unveiled its official 2020 Tennessee Vacation Guide.

For the first time, the guide features three distinct covers that showcase the breadth of picturesque landscapes across the state, including treasures like Reelfoot Lake State Park in Tiptonville, Machine Falls at Short Springs Natural Area in Tullahoma and Jane Bald at Roan Mountain in Carter County. Tennessee is home to 10,000 caves, 500-plus cascading waterfalls, 56 state parks, thousands of miles of creeks, streams and rivers and 500,000 acres of ponds and lakes and America's most-visited national park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Designed to inspire travel, the magazine-style guide highlights Tennessee's scenic beauty, thriving urban cities, charming small towns, music, rich history, world-class museums, creative spirit and culinary excellence. The Franklin, Tennessee-based Journal Communications, Inc. produces the guide, which is distributed to nearly 500,000 visitors annually.

Some of the topics in the 2020 vacation guide are:

Take it Outside – Tennessee is an outdoor playground, with inspiring views and heart-pumping adventures that can only be “Made in Tennessee” such as fishing, hiking, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, caving, camping, rock climbing, boating, ziplining, waterskiing, parasailing, wildlife watching, geocaching, waterfalls and stunning overlooks.

Urban Explorations – Each of the state's major cities have something interesting and unique to offer, from attractions and dining to music and family memories. Women Who Shaped TN & The World – It's been 100 years since women earned the right to vote in the United States. A century later, female powerhouses are the driving force behind many Tennessee restaurants, shops, music, distilleries and sports.

The guide also features Kid-Reviewed family attractions, Southern comfort food classics to scratch off the bucket list, products made in Tennessee from candy and whiskey to boats and bats, off-the-beaten path places in rural Tennessee, road trip adventures throughout the state's 95 counties on the Discover Tennessee Trails and Byways, annual events, a pull-out map of visitor services, travel resources, stunning photography and noted writers profiling the places, people and events that attract more than 119 million visitor stays to Tennessee each year.

The 2020 Vacation Guide is available for free as a printed guide or e-guide download at tnvacation.com and is also available at any of Tennessee's 16 Welcome Centers.
