Lakes and rivers are in abundance such as; Douglas, Chilhowie, Tellico, and Fort Loudon for those who swim, fish, ski, or just like to drift down the Little River in an inner tube. Besides drifting down the river many areas for swimming are easily accessible. Many rope swings are hung over the river for the thrill seekers. Also If you are into the outdoors beautiful vistas can be seen in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Cades Cove and”the loop”are wonderful places to see wildlife and be together as a family.
