Bass Pro out by the interstate. duh!





The Big South Fork (KY) is like the Smokies in reverse AND theres rarely anyone there. Beautiful place.

Historic Ducktown/Copperhill

Lookout Mtn/Chattanooga

Rockhounding in the Spruce Pine NC area.

Knoxville Expo Center has a decent flea market a weekend or 2 a month. they have a website you can check dates.

Knoxville Zoo isn't bad for a small town zoo.



Personally, I avoid that tourist trap of pigeon forge/gatlinburg like the plague. And if you don't like going 5mph all day with frequent stops, don't do Cades Cove. Get out and take some of the small trails in the Smokies, especially on the 'other side'. I am a local if you want to bounce anything off me via PM.

The thing I remember about the Biltmore is that they had electric lights in 1895!


And a indoor heated swimming pool.

well since I live in Sevierville. Some of the shows are great.you can go to Cherokee on the other side(casino if that's your game) Jonesborough TN is a great little trip. Ashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga are great stops all in your time. well have a great time and enjoy our beautiful backyard.


What would you suggest in Knoxville?

There are a couple small museums in K'ville and the Downtown area is very walkable and lots of good restaurants. A museum outside of Townsend which is near Cades and a cave but not sure if its open. Cherokee has the museum of the Cherokee Indian and Waynesville has wheels through time museum which is great. Biltmore is a wonderful place but pricey, still worth it to see once in your life. You could do a day trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mt. Mitchell, the highest point in NC and its only a little north of Asheville. It has a restaurant for a good lunch there too.

Bryson City has a train you can ride on through the mountains. There is the museum of energy in Oak Ridge. Lots of antique stores in Clinton. There is Marble Springs, the home of TN first governor John Sevier. There is a new section of the Foothills Parkway open between Walland and Wears Valley with spectacular views. Then there is always the shows to go see in PF and G'burg. Sweet Fannie Adams is a nice little Vaudville style show and there is the aquarium too. Lots to do if you seek it out.
