(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) - The year 2010 brings several significant additions to the tourism industry and some important historical milestones. This is an exciting time for new exhibits, attractions, hotels, restaurants and experiences in Tennessee.

One of the most important milestones is the 75th birthday celebration of Elvis Presley that will take place on January 7-10 at Graceland in Memphis.

Another important 2010 milestone is the opening of Titanic Pigeon Forge, a 30,000-square-foot, ship-shaped structure that rests on 5.69 acres. It will hold 20 galleries with hundreds of artifacts from the Titanic. The galleries are set to open April 2010.

Also notable is the 100th birthday of the Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. The hotel began celebrating in September 2009. The Hermitage is the only five-diamond hotel in Tennessee and boasts the famous Capitol Grille, one of Tennessee's finest dining experiences.

Below, please find a brief summary of what's new in 2010.
