Hi I'm going down to visit some family in Fairfield Glade next week. We are a family of 4 with two kids aged 11 and 2. I used to go down all the time when I was a kid and loved it.
I'm sure things have changed and I wanted to ask if anyone had specific ideas that the kids would love. We're already Crossville tn to chattanooga tn on visiting Pirates Cove for video games, putt putt, and go carts and will also visit some of the parks but any other suggestions in either Crossville or Farifield Glade would be great.
Also we are a mixed race couple. Crossville tn to chattanooga tn white and my wife is a black Jamaican. I'm hoping this will not be an issue but if anyone knows otherwise I would also appreciate any info of places to avoid as I want my kids to enjoy themselves.
I don't think interracial marriage is an issue in most places anymore; I know it's certainly not in Chattanooga. However, there are hold-outs with Confederate flags in front yards But those are
Crossville tn to chattanooga tn areas that you drive by; I can't imagine it being an issue in any slightly urban area. This is a tricky suggestion since you have a two year old, but if you wanted to split into two and two one day it would work.
About half an hour from Crossville is Scott's Gulf, one of the major canyon systems in Cumberland Plateau and one of the most beautiful places in all Tennessee. From there you can take a hike to Virgin Falls Pocket Wilderness. It's long- about eight miles without extensions including significant elevation change-but well worth the effort.
It flows off a bluff similar to Alum Cave in the Smokies or Yahoo Falls in Big South Fork in Kentuckythen flows around to the back of the cave and disappears into a hole. The cave system in Scott's Gulf is massive, with over twenty entrances. Finally you'll reach the massive Virgin Falls which flows out of a cave and down one hundred and fifty feet into another. It's quite the wonder, and you can explore the cave, too. I agree with Kristin about the "mixed race".
Just like in Michiganyou'll have some idiots that have a problem. Just ignore them or leave the premise. Unfortunately, there are idiots all over the world. Give Cumberland Caverns a shot. The 11 year old will probably love it.
Not sure about the 2 year old. They also have bluegrass concerts there on some nights. Be sure to visit the Minister's Treehouse in Crossville. Hold on to the 2 year old though as it's not a safe place to let a little one run loose.
The link below will help you find it. Thank you all for the advice. I have many great memories in Tennessee as I lived in Memphis briefly as a kid and visited my grandparents many times during spring and summer breaks.
I love how most people there are friendly and laid back. It is very different from Michigan Crossville tn to chattanooga tn the Glade tends to have quite a few Michiganders who've retired there. I have taken my wife there once and we had no problems but we didn't go out at all as we were not really there for pleasure. It Crossville tn to chattanooga tn good to know that overall we should not encounter too many problems based on race. The mountains remind my wife of her home in Jamaica quite a bit.
I'm looking forward to this trip and plan on checking out all of your recommedations. Our 2 year old is very active so we might have to leave him with family on some of the trips. No worries though we're used to doing that on visits to Jamaica. Hopefully I can get out and play a little golf too. Thanks again everyone, cheers! You didn't ask about restaurants, but Lefty's, on Peavine Road, is one of our favorites, very kid friendly, and delicious.
If you drive a back road into the Catoosa Wildlife Area, out Peavine Rd, you can find a creek to park along and let the kids throw a few stones into the creek. Ozone Falls is east on rt.
There are no railings above the falls! Well we're back and had a great trip. It was pretty good and I'd recommend it. The Bean Pot's food wasn't too good but we got a kick out of the menu and the place. It hasn't changed since I was a kid.
I wrote a review on it. The treehouse was pretty cool. We didn't go inside it but walked around and check it out. We didn't stay long as there are no trespassing signs all over and I
Crossville tn to chattanooga tn want to get into trouble.
Apparently they've had some problems with vandalism there. Pirate's Plateau was closed most of the week so we went into Crossville to Chuckles. It was a good time and is set up much like a Chuck E Chesses. The kids didn't want to leave. We went to Crab Orchard to check out an old 's hotel but it has been torn down. We are went to the scenic view "Crossville tn to chattanooga tn" by Dorchester.
