River Gorge Explorer

Arizona boosts the Grand Canyon and spectacular sights you can get to by riding a donkey down to the canyon floor. We have our own “grand canyon” here in Tennessee, and you can experience its beauty without having anything to do with a slow, cantankerous donkey. In fact, as Tennessee Crossroads found out, you can view the Tennessee River George in comfort aboard one of the most advanced boat afloat, The River George Explorer, which calls Chattanooga, TN home. Join Nashville Public Television’s Tennessee Crossroads to find out more.
