Welcome to our Tennessee Blog!

About Us

We are Bri and Laurin, two sisters from a small town in North Carolina who “settled” across the border into Northeast Tennessee, calling Johnson City home.

We created this blog in 2022, providing Tennessee travel tips to travelers visiting the Volunteer State!

We aim to be the #1 Tennessee travel blog with whom you and fellow travelers will trust our knowledge of Tennessee travel.

Our detailed guides and itineraries will focus on the best cities in Tennessee with recommendations on the best things to do, where to stay, the best places to eat & drink, and much more!

Sisters in a Johnson City brewery and owners of the Tennessee travel blog.

We both love traveling (near & far) and exploring the outdoors, and wanted to share all of our favorite hangout spots, outdoor adventures, and all our local insight into Tennessee travel with you on this blog.

About Laurin

Laurin has been living in Johnson City for over 10 years with her husband, Jeremy, along with their many fur babies — 3 cats, 2 dogs, and a Macaw named Tango.

She attended East Tennessee State University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Cardiopulmonary Science and now works in healthcare.

Laurin loves to travel and has been to over 20 countries, many of them with her sister Bri.

She also loves to spend time outdoors camping in her VW Westfalia camper, attending music festivals, and getting her hands dirty by flipping houses with her husband.

Bri is a full-time travel blogger, spending the majority of her time slow traveling around the world but visiting “home” in the Blue Ridge Mountains in between.

She has been traveling full-time (with her beloved 3-legged cat Yoda) for over 10 years since graduating college with a degree in French and International Studies, and then later her post-grad MA degree in Humanitarian Aid.

Bri has lived in 4 continents and 9 countries, as well as traveled to and experienced different cultures in over 35 countries.
