I walk the Green Belt starting at the Petco parking lot, its a nice hike the only bad spot is that open place when its really hot. The path does end and turn into gravel its about a 6 % grade not for the weak hearted. It reminds me of Living history farms in Iowa.

Go on line a pull up the Exchange Place, Kingsport, TN, there you will find their list of events. The garden one is this weekend, April 30 and May 1, 2016. I like going and buying my herbs and vegetable plants. There is always a nice variety and you can find some of the older varieties that you can't find... More

This is a wonderful place to go to learn about history. But make sure you go when it is open. Trip Advisor has it wrong. They are only open from April till October not every Saturday and Sunday all year. We went thinking it was open and the lady there was very nice and let us take a tour since... More

We enjoy going to the spring plant sale here. We have been the last two years. You can buy several varieties of heirloom tomatoes and lots of other vegetable plants. You can buy flowers and some wildflowers. There are also lots of crafts for sale and some demonstrations. I have taken kindergarten groups here for field trips in the past... More

This is a very nice historic site. Events are held here often. A city jewel. I don't go often, so can't say much. But I have bought things at the events, and have enjoyed them.

So much for so little! Volunteers stay in character as they cook, sew, and spin. Blacksmith is busy at the forge hammering horseshoes and nails. Games with crazy names are organized for children and adults. Music from fiddles and dulcimers fill the air. Of course, you can buy one of those new-fangled sausages that fit in a bun from a...
