In the mood for hiking, biking and wild- life viewing? Visit Cades Cove, a picturesque valley within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that exudes historic charm and natural beauty. Want to see the sights? Experience the rides of Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. There is plenty to feast your eyes on in this state. Celebrate Seasonal Ingredients Open since 2006, the Red Pony in Franklin features "Sophisticated Southern" style, flair and fare. Owner and executive chef Jason McConnell changes the menu about six times a year to celebrate seasonal ingredients. Some of the tantalizing choices include fried green tomatoes with almond romesco, pickled carrots and celery, and red hot aioli as a starter and pork chop with marinated kale and leeks, summer succotash, and apple cider caramel as an entree. Save room for the decadent desserts, including caramel cov- ered apple cake with pumpkin seed granola, butterscotch and brandy mascarpone. Enjoy Musical Attractions Memphis provides a feast of musical adventures but one of the most alluring attractions that captivates both adults and kids is Graceland. The mansion is a must see with unique rooms honoring the King of Rock 'n' Roll and showcasing his life, and that's only the beginning of the experience. Stay at The Guest House at Graceland to truly immerse yourself in Elvis's world, and enjoy the museums and dining found within Elvis Presley's Memphis such as the Elvis The Entertainer Career Museum. Memphis venues offer plenty of event space. Be sure you save time to see Elvis's airplanes to experience more of what Elvis loved and how he lived. n City Map Location Page 1 2 3 Chattanooga ...............................
