To Plan A Trip

Northeastern Tennessee is a good jumping-off point for a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains or the Cumberland region of the Appalachians. Visitors should contact the director of information at the Department of Tourist Development (Room T, Box 23170, Nashville, TN 37202/Tel: 615-741-7994). It has a clear, well-written packet of information to acquaint you with the region. For an up-to-date calendar of events around town or information on the storytelling festival, your best bet would be the Jonesborough Visitors Center (P.O. Box 375, Jonesborough, TN 37659/Tel: 615-753-5961). The town is situated one and a half hours northeast of Knoxville, and just twenty minutes west of Johnson City on Highway 321.

We hope you enjoy our work.
