Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area
By Visit JC on Aug 14 2023
A short drive from Johnson City, Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area marks the first permanent settlement outside the 13 colonies and the muster point for the Overmountain Men on their way to the Battle of King’s Mountain. The park features a reconstruction of Fort Watauga, a museum, and year-round interpretive programs.
Do Johnson City your way by experiencing the thrill of Tannery Knobs Mountain Bike Park or slow it down with the family on the Tweetsie Trail. Venture out at night to the Windsor Speakeasy or dance your way to the stage at a local bar, Down Home. Make memories around the dinner table at Label, one of our most popular restaurants in town or grab a quick bite to eat at a beloved local drive-thru, Pal’s Sudden Service. Whatever the mood is, Johnson City makes it happen. Go all out!
