Unfortunately driving along the interstate from Memphis to Nashville to the Cumberland pass area, most of the scenery consisted of stands of forest fronting farmland. I didn't get to see much hilly, undulating landscape in the Blue Ridge Mountains and didn't really see the Great Smokies close up. The drive through Virginia, however, was gorgeous with a mix of forest, farmland and low mountains. Since I didn't get to see alot of Tennessee's natural beauty from the road, which do you prefer? I know there's not much in it, but I'm wondering if you have any preference at all and why?

I might have a slight preference for TN, the beauty of which cannot be fully appreciated from the interstate highways.

They're both beautiful. However, Virginia has the added advantages of the Atlantic Ocean, the Chesapeake Bay and a longer stretch of Appalachian mountains.

Tennessee: Ruby falls, Lookout mountain, Rock city, smokey mountains, pidgeon forge. These to me are the most beautiful places I have ever been, with very few exceptions.

Both are beautiful but it seemed to me like more of Virigina had the appalachians running through it.

I agree, this is one topic where state lines are only imaginary and you just have to appreciate the beauty of each. I'm with DubbleT, you have to get away from the highways in either state to fully see what's really there. Same goes for North Georgia, W NC, E Ky, NE Ala...anything in the shadows of the Apps and foothills geologically makes for some fine road trips and overnighters. I can't vote on this as one vote for would be a vote against the other. No fairness in that at all.

But VA has a coast. That is a must for me. I love TN though.
