Some Things You May Enjoy.

This is another waterfall that is easy to find.  Take Highway 91 east (NE really) out of Elizabethton, TN for about 10 miles.  Turn left onto Panhandle Rd at the big, brown national forest sign for "Blue Hole".  After the road turns to gravel look for a small parking area on the left side of the road (1 mile or so, I didn't keep track, sorry).  There is room for maybe 6 cars or so.

Bee Cliff Cabins

Bee Cliff Cabins is nestled in the mountain valley of Siam on the Watauga River. The cabins are a great place for fishing, hunting, or just a peaceful family getaway.  Three of the cabins are about 40 feet across a small road from the river and the others are located across the street on a hill with a beautiful scenic view. All the cabins share a dock on the river, but each cabin is fully furnished with all the luxuries of home. All you need is the food! Plus each cabin has its own private porch. The area has many exciting features; the lakes are only miles away, a river for fishing, rafting, and kayaking, and places for hiking including the Appalachian Trail. These unique cabins are owned and operated by John and Norine Allen. 

Tweetsie Trail

The Tweetsie Trail is a rails-to-trails project, traversing former ET&WNC (“Tweetsie”) railroad right-of-way between Johnson City and Elizabethton, Tennessee. The trail provides opportunities for walking, hiking, running, and biking on a relatively flat grade in beautiful North East Tennessee.

Bristol Motor Speedway

Time after time, race after race, it is said that there's just no place better to watch a race than at this half-mile oval located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains here in northeast Tennessee.

The fans say it, the drivers say it and so do the media. Read it, see it, and hear it for yourself by choosing an option to the left.

Simply stated, Bristol is the Last Great Colosseum

Bee Cliff Cabins
