After months of Zoom calls from our lockdown cell, forest bathing and digital detoxing in Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains is the kind of back-to-nature immersion we're craving. Hitting that sweet spot between wilderness and wellness is Blackberry Mountain, sibling to the much-loved Blackberry Farm. Embrace the Southern outdoors along 40km of trails or head to the Hub for hot yoga, whittling classes, meditation and farm-to-table fare. Should it be a man-made sensory onslaught you're hankering after, a trip to the Music City of Nashville will likely hit the right note as gigs and restaurants spark back to life. Shack up at Urban Cowboy where the Wild West meets extravagant Victoriana and great craft cocktails.
