The Ruby Falls 

Tennessee, located in the southeastern U.S., is home to various ranges of the Appalachian Mountains, including the Bald and Great Smokies, among others. The Appalachian Valley, made up of low ridges and hills, lies to the west of the mountains.

Tennessee is home to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which straddles the border with North Carolina. The park is America's most visited, and features stunning peaks, lush forests and year-round, vibrant wildflowers.
