For the parks, of course!
Tennessee is a great place to live. With a mild climate, family-friendly cities, and a relatively low cost of living, the Volunteer State offers plenty to attract movers. One of the best things about this state is the large selection of beautiful, spacious, and well-maintained State and National Parks—and all the relaxation and recreational activities that go with them.
Fuller State Park
The only state park within the city of Memphis, Fuller is 1,138 acres of forest, campsites, and activities for the whole family. Germantown movers will enjoy taking advantage of this park, which is only a half-hour drive away.
Fuller State Park offers a newly renovated, state-of-the-art campground with a picnic shelter and playground. Campers and day visitors can enjoy the Olympic-sized pool with concession stand, which is centrally located in the park. The park also features a gorgeous half-mile nature trail, currently being expanded, that runs alongside wetland areas.
Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area
Bordered by rivers, this scenic park is an ideal destination for Knoxville movers. Plenty of recreational water sports and activities are available on the rivers, including whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing, canoeing, and canoe camping.
The park contains hundreds of miles of horse trails and hiking paths, with biking and overnight trail camping permitted. There is also swimming at the Bandy Creek Pool, camping in either fully developed or rustic lodge settings, and scenic overlooks throughout the park.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The busiest park in the country, Great Smoky Mountains is close to both Shelbyville movers and Knoxville movers, measuring a sprawling 800 square miles. More than 9 million visitors head to this breathtaking national park every year, which preserves some of the most stunning deciduous forests in the world, as well as several structures built by original settlers of the area in the 1700s.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains 800 miles of hiking trails, though visitors are also welcome to drive through and take in the scenic views. This park is also one of a handful in the world containing an international biosphere reserve, designated to maintain and conserve the wide diversity of plants and animals found there.
