Music makes every road trip better, whether it’s your favorite satellite radio station or a playlist you made before you left. But music can also be the destination of your road trip—specifically places that revolve around or are inspired by music of all kinds. We picked five obvious-but-great music-centric destinations for your next Fleetwood RV family adventure.

Pigeon Forge, TN
Apparently, it wasn’t enough for Dolly Parton to just be one of America’s greatest songwriters, or a country music legend, or an occasional movie star, or a generous philanthropist. She also decided to create her own theme park. Dollywood is nestled amidst the stunning natural beauty of Tennessee and boasts all the rides, lodging, live entertainment, and food you expect to find at an amusement park. The real magic, though, is in all the Dolly-centric attractions on the grounds: wander through her tour bus, explore a recreation of the Tennessee mountain home she grew up in, and see memorabilia from her personal collection!
