Top Spring Break Destinations in Tennessee

Spring Break Destinations | Memphis, TN

You don’t have to travel far have a great spring break. There are plenty of amazing destinations right here in Tennessee for all kinds of lifestyles, whether you love the outdoors, food, exercise, or even shopping. These are a few of the top spring break destinations in Tennessee!

Musical heritage tour

From Bluff City to Nashville, no state rivals the musical heritage of Tennessee. Pick the nearest large city near you and you can probably spend the entire spring break going to concerts and live music venues. If you love bluegrass, country, and soul, there’s no better place to be than Tennessee.

Explore waterfalls

If not for the music, Tennessee would be practically synonymous with waterfalls. Beersheba Springs is a great place to start — you can see a triplet of waterfalls including Foster Falls, Blue Hole, and Greeter Falls. If that gives you a taste for the sweet sound of water rushing over rock, check out Old Stone Fort State Park.

Food tour at Nashville

Nashville is more than just Music City. It also has loads of top-rated restaurants, amazing local dishes, and a generally awesome food culture. Take a food tour in downtown or east Nashville and treat yourself to a tasty spring break.
