Moving to Tennessee
Tennessee is pretty country, y'all. You will be mesmerized by nature's beauty as Tennessee is covered by more than 60,000 miles of streams and over 540,000 acres of lakes, a fisherman's paradise. From the mountains to the valleys, from Nashville to Dollywood, from glitz and glamour to down home cooking, Tennessee has it all and something to tantalize every taste. City life and rural pleasures, mild climate, and the music capital of the world, Tennessee is fun, family oriented and fabulous.
Tennessee became the 16th state on June 1, 1796. With an area of 42,146 square miles, Tennessee is the 36th largest state in the US.
