Tennessee is a popular destination for nature lovers who come to explore the untouched outdoors. Many of the best resorts in Tennessee are clustered in the eastern Tennessee.
With Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Great Smoky Mountains National Park bringing tourists in droves, it makes sense that some of the best resorts are in this highly-touristed area.
However, you will find some other quality resorts scattered throughout the state such as Nashville’s iconic Gaylord Opryland Resort and unique experiences such as the French Broad River Dude Ranch. Many of these resorts offer access to a plethora of recreational activities. Most are family friendly with many featuring on-site water parks and more for kids and adults alike.
Lets have a look at the best resorts in Tennessee:
