To the north and south the shape of Tennessee has the traditional straight lines of many states in America. However, the western edge of the state is bound by the mighty Mississippi river and is convoluted as it follows its meandering path and to the east the Appalachian mountains form another natural boundary and the state line plots its path through their peaks. Nestled in these mountains is the Smokey Mountain National Park.

Tennessee has more neighbouring states than most with Arkasas to the west, Missouri to the north west, Kentucky to the north, Virginia to the north east, North Carolina to the east, Georgia to the south east, Alabama to the south and Mississippi to the south west.

There is a rich history to the state with names of pioneers such as Daniel Boone who cut the wilderness road through what is now known as Cumberland Gap national historical park. This road opened up east Tennessee to a wave of settlers in 1775. Legendary hero of the Alamo Davy Crockett was born in eastern Tennessee. The state was also the site of many important battles in the American Civil war.

More recently, Memphis was one of the centres of the civil rights movement. However, Memphis is more renouned for being connected to music and Gracelands Elvis Presleys home is now a world famous shrine to the king of rock and roll. The music connections dont stop there, Nashville is the home of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Old Oprey. Out in the east is Dollywood the theme park owned by Dolly Parton.
