The state of Tennessee is geographically, culturally, economically, and legally divided into three Grand Divisions: East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and West Tennessee. East Tennessee is accentuated by Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and several popular theme parks. Middle Tennessee is highlighted by Nashville, the state capital, and Memphis, the epicenters for country music. West Tennessee is bordered by the Mississippi River to the west and the Tennessee River on the east, offering an abundance of natural area to explore. All three Grand Divisions provide the active, as well as the not-so-active pathfinder countless outdoor recreation opportunities, as well as exceptional scenic driving trails.
Tennessee’s major industries include agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism. Poultry, soybeans, and cattle are the state’s primary agricultural products, and major manufacturing exports include chemicals, transportation equipment, and electrical equipment. Tennessee has 56 unique state parks, over 80 waterfalls, 1100 miles of trails, more than 60,000 stream miles, and some 540,000 lake acres. It is also home to the most caves in the United States, with over 10,000 documented.

The Tennessee state sales tax rate is 7%, and Counties and cities can charge an additional local sales tax of up to 2.75%, for a maximum possible combined sales tax of 9.75%. Tennessee has 779 special sales tax jurisdictions with local sales taxes in addition to the state sales tax.
