There’s A Little Slice Of Paradise Hiding Right Here In Tennessee… And You’ll Want To Visit

Have you ever visited Watauga Lake, in East Tennessee? Located in Butler, this expansive and perfectly beautiful waterway is right on the Appalachian Trail and a stone’s throw from Boone, North Carolina. The Tennessee Valley Authority created the lake in the late 1940s, and we’re so very happy it did. Take a look at this piece of paradise!
