NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A traveling exhibit highlighting the 75th anniversary of Tennessee state parks is hitting the road for the next year.
A trailer emblazoned with Tennessee state park images and logos is touring state parks and various communities.
There are 54 state parks, and most Tennesseans have one within an hour's drive. The newest park, Cummins Falls in Jackson County, opened this year. Gov. Bill Haslam has proclaimed July Tennessee state parks month.
The exhibit itinerary is at www.tnstateparks.com.
