The Beautiful Mountain In Tennessee Where You Can See Thousands Of Rhododendrons In Bloom

Springtime is one of the best times to visit Tennessee, but it’s over quickly and sometimes shows up late. She’s a fickle friend, here in the south, and Roan Mountain has come to explode with blooms not in the heart of spring, but the very end of it, near the brink of summertime. It seems a strange time for the eastern part of the state to color itself with flowers, but this beautiful mountaintop knows exactly what it’s doing, and shows off year after year.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
