Which is a MUST-SEE attraction, any difference Tennessean vs. Non-Tennessean??

Beale Street (Memphis)

Grand Ole Opry (Nashville)

Graceland (Memphis)

Smoky Mountains Park

Tennessee Aquarium (Chattanooga)

Thank you.

**Acknowledgment: thanks to the "Poll: What is the most popular attraction in the state of Tennessee?" by soverbey. I took the top five choices hoping to better consolidate the polls.

Originally in that poll as of Jan 14 2007 votes are as follows:

Tennessee Aquarium (Chattanooga) [ 5 ] ** [6.67%]

Beale Street (Memphis) [ 12 ] ** [16.00%]

Grand Ole Opry (Nashville) [ 11 ] ** [14.67%]

Graceland (Memphis) [ 19 ] ** [25.33%]

Smoky Mountains Park [ 22 ] ** [29.33%]

I chose the Grand Ole Opry on both counts...but under one condition...it must be during the several months of the year when they are back at the Ryman.

If you are a country fan, there is nothing like seeing the Grand Ole Opry back at the Mother Church. And just being downtown on a Saturday night is enough. Go down to Tootsies or Roberts after the show and enjoy some real music.

I went with the Smokey Mountians on both counts. Not much can rival natural beauty when it comes to things one "must" see IMO. All are pretty much things one would want see in a trip to TN...so its hard to pick just one.

I dont think so, I looked at the options on the polls when you go to create one and I dont see that option. Some boards allow it, our board here I think just allows for multiple questions, but not for multiple picks in the same question.

I gave the 4 hour tour to friends from Ireland in October-ish. They had just visited the Smokies and are coming to spend a month there in April. The one place my family all take "newbies" to is the Parthenon. I have never ever had a complaint, acutally some of the thankyous that have followed have been awesome! Of course we also recommend the Blue Bird, and a few warm evening hours in the honkytonks on lower broad. A burger at Brown's. Coffee at Fido's. Whenever we are graced with a Repeat trip to Nashville there is always a request to add those to the agenda.

I chose Smokey Mountains on both counts too. But, I have to say that Tennessee is blessed with many great attractions, more than most states. All of the attractions listed are great, and well worth the visit no matter where you're from.

I chose graceland for out of towners because of this history with music and this state.

i chose tennessee aquarium for insiders because of the educational experience to be gained, and everyone knows public schoolers need more than they get in the classroom in this state.
