Appalachian. The Blue Ridge Mountains and Parkway are a sight to behold. There is feel here that you get no place else. You can step back into the yesteryear of not-so-long-ago. You can remember how we got started here. You can still see it in people's faces, taste it in their food, know it in the atmosphere all around you.
SOUTH -The Smokey Mountains: Head to East Tennessee if you're in the mood for The Great Smokies, bluegrass, and country kitsch. Hike Mount Lecont and rest your toes at Leconte Lodge. Take a spin around Dollywood during the day (your visit earns you life long music street cred) for some rides and bluegrass music a plenty. Sleep in a log cabin at night. Splurge at Blackberry Farm.
