Something to do all year round
Known for its beautiful landscape, Johnson City is full of mountains, low valleys, and breathtaking scenery. From the Warriors’ Path State Park, which is ideal for hiking, biking, and camping, to the Boone Lake, located only 15-minutes away from the city’s center, and Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park, which features a mountain river trail, Johnson City’s outdoors has something for everyone.
The city’s downtown is also a place to immerse yourself in art and local music. Discover historical and contemporary facts about Appalachia at the Reece Museum. Grab a bite at the Mid City Grill where you’ll taste some of the best burgers and fries in Tenessee. And if you happen to be around during the holidays, you’ll want to attend the Johnson City Christmas Parade.
