Visiting Western Tennessee

Tennessee often yields unique and memorable experiences to its visitors. Out in the western region of the Volunteer State, from cities like McKenzie to Memphis, you’ll find a wide range of excellent things to see and do this winter. Whether you want to embark on a tour of the Gordon Browning Museum or the world-famous Graceland in Memphis, options will be nearly unlimited this winter in western Tennessee.

As you plan your visit to western TN, be sure to include a fun stay in Jackson. Neatly situated along Interstate 40, Jackson can yield a full day of exploration and activity. Swing by Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store Restaurant and check out their fully restored 1890s Ice Cream Parlor & Fudge Shoppe. Any visit to Jackson should include a tour of the Casey Jones Village – don’t miss the Historic Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum.

You can keep the holiday cheer rolling this winter in Memphis. Visit The Orpheum Theater in December  for a night of excellent live music and performance – the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas special will treat nearly all of your senses, but mostly sight and sound.

Any visit to Memphis should include some time well spent at the FedEx Forum. Home of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, the FedEx Forum also hosts top performers throughout the year.
