Glenmore Mansion

Reviewed By 71douglasm - Knoxville, Tennessee

We had relatives visiting and took them to tour Glenmore Mansion. For $5 per person we received a one hour tour. The rooms for the most part were elegantly and historically displayed. The tour guide was very informative and answered all our questions. Some of the rooms were closed and some were a work in progress. It would have been a more rewarding tour if we were exposed more to the every day life of the previous owners. Tours are conducted on the hour, so you should plan to arrive close to that time if you want a full tour. Also, be prepared to walk up and down flights of stairs with low railings. Be extra careful if you bring children.

Tennessee Smokies Minor League Baseball and Smokies Park

Reviewed By Jack L - Sevierville, Tennessee

You start out by paying a $5 parking fee, which is nothing considering the parking lot is well marked and clean! The staff who sell the tickets are so fun and friendly!!! We have the best time before the games even start....This ballpark is so fun and friendly! Mascots walking around, events for all ages, food that is fair priced and yummy!!! The kids can play on the play area, which is padded with foam mulch. The kids can jump in the jump houses for $5 a piece. He events during the game are awesme too! They have kids running after mascots, playing games, running the bases and events where kids get to meet the players. I would agree tha there is NOT a bad seat in this ballpark! The fireworks on Fridays are awesome too! The gift/merchandise shop is a happening place and I can see why it is...So many selections of shirts, hats, memorabilia and SO MUCH MORE!!! We have a blast watching the Smokies and would recommend a trip out o check it out!!!

This is truly a beautiful estate, saw a herd of deer as we were leaving. Had the privilege of enjoying the tasting with the owner. Absolutely amazing building and grounds, great party or wedding venue. Wines made from Tennessee grapes only. Scarlett was our favorite,...MoreThank you for taking that Long Drive!

Patriot Hills Golf Club

Reviewed By Jotum - Knoxville, Tennessee

This is the sister course of the Dandridge course. It is just north of the interstate. It is rather hilly as one would expect in TN and is surrounded by homes. The views of the mountains,from some holes are great. It appears some work has been done on the course as it was in pretty good shape. Was a fun course to play

Tinsley-Bible Drugstore

Reviewed By jazzgran - Blairsville, Georgia

I guess the biggest revelation to me was that the "Bible" in the name is the last name of one of the founders. This is a tiny place probably mostly patronized by locals...an old fashioned pharmacy with a soda fountain and a few gift type items. Fun memorabilia on walls but it'll take you five minutes or less to see unless you stay for ice cream.
