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.
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.
If you need a ride to all of these spring break destinations, check out our wide inventory of high-quality used and new vehicles at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase in Memphis, Tennessee!
Get outdoors and explore your community in your Buick or GMC
vehicle. It’s just a short drive to the Memphis in May International Festival,
which includes a music festival, barbecue cookoff, a 5K, and a special tribute
to Columbia. You can learn about other cultures, eat some great food, and enjoy
Beale Street Music
The Beale Street Music Festival is unlike any other music
event in the region. From May 3-5, catch world-renowned artists like The
Killers, Khalid, the Dave Matthews Band, and Cardi B. Buy tickets for three
days, a single day, or for a VIP experience. In total, more than 60 bands will
appear on four stages.
World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest
If you are looking for some delicious treats, check out the
World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest from May 15-18. Organizers are
expecting a whopping 75,000 attendees at this year’s contest, which USA Today
calls “The Most Prestigious Barbecue Contest” around. Prizes amount to $115,000
for best ribs, shoulders, and sauce. You can also enter into contests for a whole
hog and “anything but pork,” too.
International Week features a special salute to Columbia and
includes a 5K. This event has lectures, shows, and food from Columbia to
celebrate the culture, while the 5K will occur on May 25. It’ll also feature an
after-party following the race for participants and attendees.
