Oh, you know what? You're right! It was the Aquarium. I remember now. I remember thinking - well, I've been to 3 of the 5! That's weird about the article. Maybe there's a TN-hater up there in Vancouver that took it down. Conspiracy, you see?

I was surprised today to see the Vancouver Sun is recommending 5 places in Tennessee for people from Vancouver to visit.

Plenty to see and do for families visiting Tennessee (http://www.vancouversun.com/travel/Plenty+families+visiting+Tennessee/3435692/story.html - broken link)
FALL CREEK FALLS STATE PARK in Spencer, Tennessee Van Buren County and then drive to Knoxville and see the "BIG ORANGE" play then drive over to the SMOKIES drive by down I-40 and see CENTER HILL LAKE and then to THE GRAND OLE OPRY. Now that's FIVE don't you miss them!

I'd also put Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg in the running. We used to have folks come in from other parts of the country and once they saw Nashville and the Opry, they always wanted to see Lynchburg next.

"five" Only FIVE.... Tennessee has the greatest state parks around.. you have underground caverns in several places in the state.. then you have white water rafting.. I'm think non-tourist standing in line stuff..

On My Bucket List :
Look Out Mountain
Cumberland Cavern and Blue Grass..
Standing Stone Park
Virgin Falls
Frozen Head State Park
Savage Gulf
Yeah the Smokies are Nice... I want to see the Salamanders in the creeks. The Smokies are the Holly Grail for Salamanders
I want to take that river cruse down by Chattanooga
And also see the Aquarium
Would like to see Jack Daniels Distillery
And take a tour of the Lodge Cast Iron Skillet Factory
Would also like too walk the Trail of Tears..
Old Civil War Cemeteries
The Coke Ovens down by Dayton
Tennessee has so much to offer.. all depends on your life style.. and "TIME"

Link worked fine for me...

The five things in the article are:

1. Smoky Mountains Nat'l Park.
2. Graceland
3. Aquarium in Chattanooga
4. Nashville (Yup, that's what it said...alllllll of Nashville. Actually it mentions the Grand Ol' Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame.)
5. John Muir Trail along the Hiwassee near Reliance.
