    • How possible is a trip to The Great Smoky Mountains from Nashville without a car?

      Tennessee Jun 28, 2016 at 7:56 AM

      Hey! I am travelling to the states in September and will be flying from NYC to Nashville around the 10th for a few days. The more research I have done about the area, the more I see there is to do outside of the honky tonks - The Smokey Mountains look incredible! How possible do you think it would be to venture out there without a car, on my own? I did look at some tours of the area but I couldn't seem to match any up to my time frame. Any advice on travel (reliability / safety) around that area would be much appreciated =)

      Rock Garden City

      by suekay3 Online Now Sep 17, 2015 at 9:20 AM

      I learned on Virtual Tourist that there is a hike to Rock Garden City. I would like to get an idea about how vigorous the hike is. We are 4 seniors, in pretty good shape but one of us has minor back problems. Is it a steep hike or relatively gradual?

      Rock City Garden, etc.

      by suekay3 Online Now Sep 16, 2015 at 11:57 AM

      I am confused about Lookout Mt, Rock City Garden, and Ruby Falls, and the Incline. Are they all located on Lookout Mt? Do you take the incline to Ruby Falls? I need a little clarification please! Do you recommend visiting all three?

      We will be visiting the Chatanooga area. Need a pet friendly motel. Should we look in Chatanooga or are there safer communities to recommend within a 30 mile radius? Not sure Chatnooga is not safe, so thoughts on that?

    • Moving in the future

      by ftlmom Online Now Mar 1, 2013 at 11:47 AM

      Thinking of moving here in a couple of years once the kids are in college. Burned out on the high cost of South Florida and crowds! Once a beautiful place to live. It's a difficult decision because we're not retiring. Late 40's. My husband has connection to possible position at VW. However, our family has property near Knox AND near Ashville, NC. We both have B.S. degree, like outdoor activity. We have been to the Ocoee and other sites. I hate to mention but saw an article; "if you like chiggars, ticks, red necks than Chatt is the place." We did not find that to be true on our trips and loved the downtown area. It seemed very progressive, business oriented. Of course we understand it is a slower pace from Fort. Laud. Also, can someone tell us about UTC which we hear is good vs. UT, Knox? I would like our youngest to attend but hear UT is massive. However, UTC may be a commuter school? Also hear the town Cleveland is nice. We like NC but colder/ice and we feel housing is more expensive in areas such as Chapel Hill, Raleigh. Thanks for all your advice!

      Will be bringing a group of senior citizens to LM in June. Have several questions. Is Point Blank this highest point on the mountain with the best views? Since some of my people are somewhat mobiity limited, is it possible to drive to the top? Is there a place on the top to have a picnic while enjoying the views? Since we won't be able to do the Ruby Falls/Rock City thing, any info on things that a group like this would enjoy would be appreciated. Thanks

Do I need to drive with my car to each attraction, or can they be combined (like parking at one spot, take the train up and then walk to the other ?

We are very interested in finding some really good local restaurants and some ideas on what to do. Things to do don't have to be touristy. The restaurants don't have to be chains or fancy. We really enjoy getting to eat the local cuisine at local restaurants that might be missed by most tourists! Thanks for your help.

    • what neighborhood?

      by muffintop Online Now Dec 14, 2005 at 9:27 AM

      Hi! I'm thinking about moving to your fine city. Can you help me with choosing neighborhoods, perhaps by zip code? We have 2 small kids and thus want a yard. I like older houses, say, anywhere from 100 years old to 50 years old. I like to be within walking distance to coffeeshops, cafes. If there is a "revitalized" downtown area, that'd be great. Basically I like to be near people and "things", yet still have a yard and kid-friendly neighborhood. If anyone knows of zip codes that fit this, OR can give me an address of a coffeeshop/bookstore/cafe/etc that has cute old houses nearby (but isn't run-down), that will help my search on Thank you!!!!
