Tennessee is a great place to study, live, work, and play. The climate is nice –never too hot or frightfully cold. We enjoy all four seasons, but we don’t get too much snow. Plus, there is something for everyone here.
You can take classes in American traditional arts and crafts, learn how to play the dulcimer, enjoy Appalachian music, visit a native American Indian reservation, go hiking, watch a play, take a riverboat ride, go rafting in tubes or kayaking down mountain streams, go rock climbing, go dancing, visit some farms for some agri-tourism fun like peach or apple picking, visit Pigeon Forge for outlet mall shopping, take a trip to Dollywood, go horseback riding, or enjoy some sports. Whatever your interests, Tennessee has it all!
