When to Visit

There is not a true bad time to come.  Spring offers plenty of blooming flowers and growth on trees.  Summer is warm with plenty of shade on the mountain trails or the area lakes and Tennessee River.  Fall brings the changing of leaves and cool breeze making trail riding and downtown walks a great past time- especially when they Movies in the Park events occur.  Winter is a colder time where the weather is hard to plan for.  Not the best time of the year for a visit, nature dies and there is rarely snow to cover it up.
