2022 Tennessee Vacation Guide: Your Next Vacation Is Now Playing In Tennessee

Monday, January 10, 2022

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development unveiled its official 2022 Tennessee Vacation Guide on Monday with three covers showcasing the sights, sounds and experiences that created the Soundtrack of America. Tennessee’s music scene, culinary experiences, unmatched scenic beauty, family fun and hidden gems make the state a world-class destination.

The 2022 Tennessee Vacation Guide celebrates the three main regions, from country and bluegrass to jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, with three distinct covers.

The cover story, penned by Colin Escott, highlights stages and festivals to see live music, attractions, places where legends were born and musical milestones. Levitt Shell in Memphis offers a series of free concerts and was where historians say Elvis Presley performed the first rock ‘n’ roll show. The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville is the longest-running radio show in the world and marked its 5,000th performance in 2021. In Knoxville, the Tennessee Theatre, built in 1928 as a movie palace, still entertains audiences with concerts and events. Visitors and locals are encouraged to discover the stories behind the songs along the Tennessee Music Pathways.

To spark planning your vacation now playing in Tennessee, the guide also highlights:

The guide offers over 150 pages of travel inspiration and is available free as a printed guide or instant download at TNvacation.com, or at any of Tennessee’s 16 Welcome Centers. Franklin, Tn.-based Journal Communications, Inc. produces the guide, which is distributed to nearly 500,000 visitors annually.
