I love living in Knoxville, TN. We get to experience all the seasons (even if we don’t get a lot of snow in the winter), it’s close to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and there’s a lot of cool stuff to do around town. Since spring is right around the corner, I thought this would be a great time to share some free things to do in Knoxville, TN.
We spent the first and last days of our American Southwest Road Trip vacation last year in Las Vegas. There are so many things to do in the city that it can be overwhelming to decide how to spend your time. Drinking, eating, and gambling are obviously at the top of the list for things to do in the city. But there are so many more things to do. Here are a few suggestions on How To Spend 2 Days In Las Vegas.
It’s been raining the past two weekends, so that means that we haven’t been able to hike. We spent last weekend cleaning and decluttering, which was great, but I’m ready to get back to the mountain trails. Fingers crossed for sunny weather soon! But today, I’m going to share a few favorite finds for February!
Photo from 2016: Max Patch Mountain. One of the best views around. I’ve been planning to make a trip up there again soon, maybe in the spring when the flowers start to bloom. Check out my post about Max Patch for more photos + info about how to visit!
Last weekend we headed back over to the Greenbrier area of The Smokies to hike Porters Creek Trail. (Second hike of 2018!) It’s located fairly close to the Ramsey Cascades trailhead (which is my favorite hike in The Smokies). It’s a pretty easy hike that totals a little over 6 miles round trip.
Last weekend was perfect, albeit chilly, for a winter hike. We decided on hiking the Spruce Flats Falls Trail in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was my first time hiking this trail and it was so much fun to explore a new part of The Smokies.
The Spruce Flats Falls trail is a relatively short and easy hike, totaling 2 miles round trip. It would be an excellent hike for beginners, kids, or even experienced hikers. There are also a lot of great photo opportunities.
