November Adventures

If you are looking for some November adventures, but not too far from home, then consider touring Tennessee. Spend some time in Memphis and Nashville, then make your way east on I-40 to the Cumberland Plateau, Lynchburg and the Smoky Mountains. If you don’t have a ton of time and would prefer to visit the mountains, skip all the cities and head over to the mountains, but be sure to find the time to stop at Cumberland Caverns and Lynchburg.

Since you might run into snow if you go high into the mountains, be sure to have your RV serviced for winter, including checking the tires, at Leisure Time RV. While it’s always a good idea to check everything before any trip, it is especially important that you are sure everything is in tip top shape during the cooler months.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

While the colors are mostly gone – and the park has had its first snow this year, you’ll still be able to enjoy the scenery that only bare trees can provide. You’ll see things that are normally hidden by leaves, so be sure to bring your camera and plenty of batteries. While it might be too chilly to bike the Cades Cove loop, you might still want to make the 11-mile hike for some of the best wildlife viewing. Watch for bears – there are over 1,500 bears in the park.

Whether you want to hike to a waterfall for spectacular pictures or you just want to take a non-strenuous short walk, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has it all. While you’re in the area, visit Pigeon Forge, WonderWorks or visit Townsend.

You’ll pass this on the way to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so it’s your choice to stop on the way or on the way home. While Lynchburg offers tons of things to see and do, the one thing you don’t want to miss, especially if you’ve never been, is the Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Visit the 100-year-old courthouse, unique shops, taking pictures of rolling landscapes and visit the Historic Lynchburg Square and Mulberry House.

Cumberland Caverns

Cumberland Caverns is a short drive off I-40, it is a place that you can’t miss. It’s also close to Rock Island State Park, Fall Creek Falls State Park, Savage Gulf and Center Hill Lake, so there are plenty of camping places. Catch a bluegrass concert deep in the caves, go spelunking or just visit the caves to witness the awesome sights.

Stop by Leisure Time RV for service or to pick up any accessories you may need for your trip.
