Weekend Getaway Ideas

All of these destinations are within a 3 hour drive of Knoxville and are some of our favorite spots for a weekend trip with the family. A chance to have some fun with the kids and explore somewhere new without having to get on a plane.

We love to plan and research so we have complete 3 day itineraries that come with recommendations on where to stay, where to eat, and what to do so you don’t have to spend any time on Mr. Google at all. We also have some roundups and idea posts for weekend getaway inspiration!

*Some of these blog posts are also on our second website, Simply Awesome Trips. It is all 100% Amy and Amanda though – we write all of our own posts.
