The Tennessee Department of Tourism reports about 110-million people visited the state in 2016, that's up over four-percent from 2015.

Those numbers put the state in the top ten in the country for domestic travel, according to officials.

The biggest gains were in leisure travelers, who stay overnight. This is National Tourism Week and state officials will mark it with special events at the over a dozen welcome centers statewide.
