we are going to be there for 3 days and really don't know what to see while there. any ideas?
Mountains. Lots and lots of mountains. Go hike or just drive but only do the inside stuff if it is bad weather.
You should go to Greenville. Depends on what you like to do. We follow the presidential libraries and former homes. All the Andrew Johnson stuff is there. Bushes Beans tour near Chestnut Hill. Blount Mansion in Knoxville. Westwood House in Knoxville. Crescent Bend House and Bleak House. McClung Museum of Natural History at UTenn.
