We are planning a motorcycle trip in June from Iowa to Knoxville, Tennessee. We are planning to attend the "Honda Hoot" motorcycle event. The event organizers have planned rides and activities for the days that we are at the Hoot, but we are looking for any other must see - must do activities in the area. Any suggestions of great scenic trips or must see locations in Western North Carolina, Western Virginia, Kentucky or Tennessee? We will be traveling by motorcycle and camping in our tent along the way. Even though we love scenic routes, we need to stay on hard surface roads. I am entralled with mountains, waterfalls, and quirky restaurants and roadside attractions.
I appreciated the advice I received from this thread last year when planning our Great Lakes Trip. I'm anxious to hear what advice you all can pass along for this adventure!
