WELCOME TO EAST TN
A bit of information about HOME
Three is a magic number
The state of Tennessee is divided into three main regions called “Grand Divisions:” west, middle and east Tennessee. East Tennessee is often said to be the most appealing of the three with mountains, river and rugged hills garnering thousands of tourists each year. The region can also be split into three: the Cumberland Plateau, the Tennessee Valley and the Unaka Mountains. I grew up in west Tennessee but always vacationed in East Tennessee. Now I am fortunate enought to live in the Tennessee Valley with the mountains at my backdoor!!!
The Great Smoky Mountains
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the United States, ahead of the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. It attracts between 8 and 10 million visitors each year. The park has over 800 miles of hiking trails and up to 80,000 different types of plant and wildlife species. So many things to discover and explore.
Tennessee shares its borders with eight states — a trait only one other state also has. We share the love with Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri.
As far as the eye can see
The largest underground lake in the United States lies under the city of Sweetwater, Tennessee. The 13 acres of water is part of a tourist attraction known as “The Lost Sea Adventure.” The lake is also the second largest non-subglacial body of water in the world. The Lost Sea earned its name after fossils of an animal were discovered in 1939 at the site. The animal was thought to have gotten lost in the expansive underground cave nearly 20,000 years ago.
Gatlinburg, Tennessee is home to the largest artificial ski resort in the world. Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort has over 5 acres of land for your skiing, snow boarding or tubing pleasures, regardless of the weather. Ober is open 12 hours and offers several other features, including a ski mountain coaster, scenic chairlift, ice skating rink and wildlife encounters.
