West Tennessee Trip Planner
Welcome to West Tennessee!
Bordered by the Mississippi River to the west and the Tennessee River on the east, it is not surprising that West Tennessee offers an abundance of natural areas. Visitors to this region enjoy exploring one of the area's parks, including Paris Landing State Park near Buchanan, where water activities are abundant. Other recreational areas are found near the centers of Union City, Henderson, Lexington and Huntingdon. West Tennessee offers much more than recreational activities however, since the world-renowned city of Memphis falls within its borders. Known as the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock n' Roll, this city features countless music-oriented attractions, including Graceland, the late Elvis Presley's home. The Stax Museum of American Soul, Sun Studio and the Beale Street Entertainment District also draw countless visitors to Memphis. Every year the population of Humboldt swells during the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, which celebrates the area's strawberry industry with parades, fireworks and a Strawberry Mart.
