On the Outskirts of Town: Exploring the Fun Surrounding Knox County in Sevier County {Series}

I’m a Knoxville girl, born and raised. Until high school, that is. The summer before my freshman year, my parents moved us just up the road to Seymour. Sevier County was my home for the next fourteen years, and became home yet again after Branden left the Navy. While it may feel “way out” to […]
