With so many things to do in East Tennessee in the Fall it can be hard to decide where to go and enjoy a brisk fall weekend. I want to make it simple for you by providing you a couple of places that I have been personally this Fall. Hi everyone, it’s Jeremy here and I wanted to let you know a couple of my favorite places to go this fall.
I had the privilege of going to Dollywood this fall and experience all of the wonderful things it has to offer. For those that do not know, Dollywood is a family amusement located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and is owned by Dolly Parton. This park provided a great mix of thrilling rides with the fun fall activities. From high-flying rides all the way to the pumpkins found throughout the park, you will have a blast, no matter what age. I would recommend steering clear of the couple of water rides in the park for this trip though! This was the first time I had gone to Dollywood and it will not be the last.
Another place that I went to was Oakes Farm in Corryton, Tennessee. Oakes was a very wonderful place to take your family or a significant other for a photo shoot with the beautiful mountains in the background. If that isn’t for you then maybe you are interested in discovering which farm animal took ‘Farmer Joe’ as you find your way through the corn maze. Maybe you want ride the hayride to go pick out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. My point is that no matter what you are looking for in a fall day, you will find it at one of the 25 activities that Oakes provides. Along with the attractions it also had multiple places to sit and eat something from ‘Pappy’s Fry Shack’, ‘Farmhouse Grill’, or ‘Grammy’s Sweets & Treats’. I will be going back to Oakes in the future.
With all of the beauty in East Tennessee it is hard to pick what to do this fall. I hope this helps anyone with a tough decision on where to go!
