Things To Do
Townsend boasts majestic views and outdoor activities for every skill level, but there are plenty of things to do indoors, too! If your muscles are still recovering from exploring the trails at Cades Cove, or if you’re still drying out from a trip down the river, maybe take some time to explore the more relaxing attractions we have to offer.
Visit our local artisans for a chance to learn more about the rich Appalachian history that has influenced their work. Many artists will have pieces available for sale, as well.
If you’re in the mood to learn more about the history of Townsend, the Little River Railroad & Lumber museum explores the history of the Little River Railroad and the Little River Lumber Company and their impact on the founding of our little mountain town.
