Parks & Nature
This is a really great little park in the Cherokee National Forest, and it's just down the road a short distance. Go down to the church and turn left on Powder Branch Rd. Continue till Powder Branch ends, then turn left. Finally turn left again at the end of that road. That's the best way and a pretty relaxing drive through the country. I recommend it for a picnic and casual light walk in the woods without going into town or touching a main road at all.

Roundtrip, the hike to Laurel Falls and back is 2.3 miles in total length. Hikers will climb roughly 314 feet in elevation before arriving at the 80-foot waterfall. The hike is well worth it though - Laurel Falls is very photogenic, and is widely considered to be one of the best waterfall hikes in the Smokies.

Arts & Culture
Archeological excavations have found Native Americans lived near the shoals since prehistoric times, and Cherokees gathered there. As Europeans began settling the Trans-Appalachian frontier, the shoals proved strategic militarily, as well as shaped the economies of Tennessee and Kentucky. Today, the shoals are protected as a National Historic Landmark and are maintained as part of Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park. There is a museum, as well as walking trails.

I love that little cave that's there. This is a great little piece of local history. - The Tipton-Haynes State Historic Site tells the rich story of the history of Northeast Tennessee and of the several families that lived here.

The Visitor Center contains a permanent exhibit, museum store, educational spaces, a library, and archives.

Organic and whole food market in Johnson City. Earth Fare started in Asheville, NC I believe and has several locations in the southeast now, I think. They were non-corporate for a long time. Those days are long gone.
