Crossville area Points of Interest
JP's Nascar Outlet
If you love NASCAR and have a favorite driver, then JP's NASCAR Outlet is for you! This store is huge and has a large inventory of memorabilia and collectibles for the NASCAR enthusiast.
Cumberland Mountain State Park
The Cumberland Mountain State Park is a great place to visit and eat inside the lovely restaurant overlooking the famous bridge. This park is very scenic and next to the Bear Trace Golf Club.
The Crossville area golf is the best in the state. These courses will test even the best golfers with water and lakes running along a hole or narrow fairway that doglegs to one side. Our team didn't have much trouble, but we did have a few mulligans and foot wedges used to get back in play. These courses fit the better golfer who has been playing long enough to know their shots well. If a golfer can play under 90 at their home course, they can potentially play well at these courses below. Many of these courses require tee times to be set in advance, and all have stipulations on non-club members' availability or rental equipment, so email or call ahead for any questions you may have.
Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain
The Jack Nicklaus-designed courses in Tennessee have earned top awards for some of the best courses you can play. This 6,900-yard par 72 course will challenge and reward an avid golfer!
Dorchester Golf Club
In Fairfield Glade is the Dorchester Golf Club. This 6,400-yard course has water on 6 holes and fairways on an excellent shot-maker and is wide enough for a beginner.
Druid Hills Golf Club
This 1970's legacy course inside Fairfield Glade is a massive 6,270-yard course that every golfer can enjoy. This course was built on the tallest peaks in the area!
Heatherhurst Golf Club
Here is a 2 for 12-for-1 special. The 6,200-yard Crag course is excellent for a scenic bent grass course, while the 6,171-yard Brae gives you twists and turns along its Zoysia fairway. These are top courses!
Stonehenge Golf Club
Stonehenge is the prize course in Fairfield Glade. It rained on us, so we didn't get many photos, but this course was terrific when we played it years ago. It is 6,549 yards of challenge from the blue tees!
Lake Tansi Golf Course
Just outside of Crossville is this community golf course. The 6,701-yard course plays long and favors a good shot-maker. Their website has course info and stay and play rates!
River Run Golf Club
The River Run Golf Club is our pick for a secluded golf experience. The longest and shortest holes in Cumberland county are here. They don't have a website, and you have to call their number for a tee time.
A story about Crossville and me.
In the photo, I am holding my daughter up on my back and talking to my friend Ethan Hadley. Before he came to lead the Chamber of Commerce of Cumberland county, he was the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce president. I am the tourism guy in Lawrence county, so it was fitting I see him when making our Amish trail. Ethan did something most presidents wouldn't do. He wanted a disc golf course, so he got chainsaws and a few volunteers and put one in. I am proud of my friend for bringing disc golf to Cumberland county at Meadow Lake Park.
We have a Tennessee Amish Map webpage showing the state of Tennessee with Amish communities and the hotel areas on one page!

The Great Smoky Mountains
The Amish in this area are few who live around the Delano area and the Tellico Plains areas. Further up the mountain range is the Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, just east of Knoxville. Here is where Tennesseans go to enjoy the mountains. This is also where you will find the entrance to the Smoky Mountains State Park and Cades Cove. The great Appalachian Trail is also found here for those who love hiking! Watersports like kayaking and white water rafting are also found in the park. Not everyone can say they have been down a mountain river on these rafts over waterfalls! For those who love wildlife, you can see all kinds of bears, boar, elk, turkey, and deer along the way. Fishing is also great, with many types of trout in the park and surrounding area. See the photos below!
There are a lot of places to see and link up, so we have a list of places we saw while building our Amish trail. Each place has kids in mind, so select the link and see the page to get more information about the places you are most interested in visiting!

East Tennessee BBQ is unique. The area's geography is halfway between Memphis dry rubs and Carolina Wet. The wood smoke can come from several types of trees, and the smoking times can be pretty high. You even find Tennessee whiskey-inspired sauces in the area. We want you to know about this unique BBQ adventure through East Tennessee, so check out the places below and add them to your itinerary! Some of the best BBQ places are traditionally local, and others didn't have a website, so I left them off the list due to them not having a way to be seen online.
Tennessee Whiskey is also nationally known in Eastern Tennessee as the best there is for a stiff drink. These places on the Tennessee Whiskey Tour are sure to help lift your spirits, and most of them have tours and tasting rooms for you to see their whiskey in action!

Tennessee wineries are some of the best in the nation. The atmosphere and geography make for a diverse growing environment for the grapes across Tennessee. Here are the best wineries we have to offer visitors who know their nose for great wine.
These were just the places we could find online and when we went in person to these areas. Some places have odd closing times and days off, so make sure they fit into your schedule before making your itinerary. None of these places paid us or are represented by us. We want everyone to have a great Amish Adventure, and these places should make great additions to the points of interest along the way.
