When to Go
Summer is the peak travel season for Tennessee. This is the season of hot weather and crowds at many popular sites. Spring and fall are the best times to explore Tennessee. During spring, the weather is mild and you can enjoy springtime festivals. During the fall, the trees change color and temperatures drop.
Visitors in winter may encounter cold weather and snow. Some attractions close or cut back hours from November to February, but the cool months can also be a nice time to tour as you’ll have many attractions to yourself.
