A new website recently launched to help visitors explore Tennessee’s South Cumberland Plateau region in Southeast Tennessee at www.MountainsOfAdventure.org.
This new website, which went live last week, provides in-depth information about tourism assets in the area, including spectacular waterfalls and hundreds of miles of trails within South Cumberland State Park, as well as numerous other outdoor recreation resources, historic sites, local restaurants, shops, lodging, and live music and cave tours at The Caverns.
The website’s focus includes nine communities in Grundy, Franklin and Marion counties: Altamont, Beersheba Springs, Coalmont, Gruetli-Laager, Monteagle, Palmer, Pelham, Sewanee and Tracy City – as well as South Cumberland State Park, Tennessee’s largest state park.
"This tourism initiative has the long-term potential to benefit our region by introducing substantially larger numbers of visitors to this breathtakingly beautiful area,” said Grundy County Mayor Michael Brady.
“Visitors will stay in our cabins, eat at our locally-owned restaurants, and shop at our unique local craft and other retail establishments — all while enjoying the cultural, historical and natural amenities of our region.”
The website’s creation was facilitated by the Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association in partnership with the Grundy County Mayor’s Office and tourism partners in the area. A grant from the South Cumberland Community Fund will enable the next phase of the project, which will involve developing tourism-focused branding for each of the nine communities in the region.
