Tennessee Travel Guide

When to visit Tennessee

Tennessee's mild climate and special events make it a vacation destination for most of the year. The most popular times to visit are during the summer when kids are out of school and people take their vacations, and during the fall for foliage viewing. December, January, and February are the slowest tourism months. However, visitation picks up around the holidays when there are special festivities. Although less busy than summer, spring has pleasant weather and some major events, particularly the Memphis in May music festival that brings large crowds to the western region of the state. read more
