Ken Burns’ recent eight-part documentary of country music brings to light the historical significance of this singularly American art form. Though the musical roots of country spread across the Nation’s many regions, Tennessee shines as one of its great placeholders. As the US opens up this summer, get in tune with this heritage in a motorhome rented from a top Miami RV Rental Company for an enriching travel experience. A family or group of friends could cross the state in six hours, stopping at prime campgrounds or parks along the way. The following are three destinations accessible via a vehicle from Camp USA’s RV Rental Company in Miami.
Entering Eastern Tennessee, your first stop must be Pigeon Forge to visit Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s country music inspired theme park. In addition to enjoying music-focused attractions and shops you can enjoy thrilling rides and water-park slides, setting the stage for a whole-family entertainment package. Then, after a long day, settle into your Miami RV Rental Company motor home in one of the local campgrounds situated at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Musical Beacon, Nashville
Central Tennessee holds Nashville, country music’s center-stage city, where you will find far-ranging opportunities to explore American music. Start by touring the Ryman Auditorium, famous former home to the Grand Ole Oprey, then visit the Oprey’s current home, while taking in scheduled performances. Consider also taking in the historic Bluebird Cafe for more intimate performances.
Finally, make a pilgrimage west to Graceland in Memphis, the late Elvis Presley’s stunning home. Bask in the aura of this musical and cultural icon while exploring the mansion in small group tours. For convenience, Graceland provides onsite RV camping.
