Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Tennessee is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It is the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
Tennessee is a lush, river-run state, with beautiful scenery, a backdrop of the Appalachians and a huge music base. It's not exactly off the beaten track as far as tourism is concerned, but you're only going to find huge crowds in the interior of the big cities, such as Memphis and Nashville.
Tennessee is all about the music. If you want bluegrass and country music, head for Nashville. If you're more into rock and roll, blues, and Elvis, then get yourselves over to Memphis. You can hear new music and old in the streets, in the bars and in Nashville, you can even visit the Grand Ol' Opry house for some real classics of modern music.
Beale Street in Memphis is a place not to be missed; everyone who goes to Memphis should experience every bar in the street - each one is guaranteed to have a live band with amazing music, making it a night you'll never forget.
Of course, the only way to really get around the state is by car; when in America, do as the Americans do, so hiring a car is a must. This way, you can pick one day for music, and another day for tramping through trails and along riversides in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Watch out for bears though!
If that seems like hard work for the younger members of your group, you can promise them a trip to Pigeon Forge, a town that features a lot of amusement park for your money, tucked into the foothills of the Smokies.
A spectacular day out can be a trip to Graceland, Elvis' home, which isn't easy to reach without your own vehicle.
No-one is likely to go hungry on a holiday to Tennessee, because the food is good, the portions enormous, and the prices are small in comparison to pretty much anywhere else you've ever been. You may find that most of the available accommodation is fairly modest, but if you want something a little more upmarket, the cities have everything, from smart B&Bs to boutique hotels. The bonus of Tennessee is that the people are uber-friendly and welcoming.

It may be a cliché, but in Tennessee, the journey is as much the holiday as the holiday itself, with well-maintained interstates and country roads criss-crossing the stunning scenery.
