Historically, Johnson City was a train depot. Today, Johnson City is a prosperous location for business and community in Northeast Tennessee. Johnson City is home to East Tennessee State University and the James H. Quillen College of Medicine. The City is surrounded by beautiful mountains and trees, which provide beautiful scenery especially in the summer and fall seasons. The annual Blue Plum Festival in downtown Johnson City offers a variety of arts, crafts, foods, and cultural music. While downtown, don’t forget to visit the Hands ON! Museum, an interactive museum for families to enjoy. Within minutes from Johnson City are beautiful lakes Watauga, South Holston, Boone and Fort Patrick Henry. These lakes provide many outdoor summer activities, including Lakeside Cinemas during summer months for friends and family at Winged Deer Park conveniently located off Highway 11-E.
A quick drive down the road from Johnson City, will bring you to the Town of Jonesborough, Tennessee’s oldest town and home to the International Storytelling Center. Each year thousands visit Jonesborough for an exciting weekend of storytelling. Town residents work hard to maintain the authenticity of Tennessee’s oldest town, while continuing to promote business and community. The Town thrives with local shops, restaurants, and tourist attractions. You may even consider slipping and sliding at Wetland’s Water Park, located just minutes from Main Street, Jonesborough.
Another interesting Northeast Tennessee attraction is The Gray Fossil Site, located minutes from Exit 13 off Interstate 26. The Gray Fossil Site contains very well preserved animal and plant remains dating about 4 – 8 million years old. The new museum and visitor center actually overlooks an actual dig area.
