  • The drive up front Knoxville was great, my family and I enjoyed it very much. We got off of I-81 @ exit 23 and went through Greenville. Which was more scenic than the interstate. The 2 stars are for the Watauga Fort and Visitors Center, it was nice. They have done a good job of replicating the original Fort. However from there we headed to the other main reason we went to Elizabethton, to see the Carter mansion which was closed. And the fact that there was no signage to let you know that it was by tour only or the schedule of said tour, (which we only found out by calling the State Park office) left us disappointed to say the least. All in all as a family we enjoyed our time together in Elizabethton, as tourists not so much.
  • Filmed a YouTube video there. Very nice. Family Cemetery is just like 40 or 50 yards from it.
