Check out the changing leaves:
Why not visit Bays Mountain Park and walk the trails? While you’re there, you can take an autumn barge ride and get a great look at the beautiful trees that fill the park. For more fun, go and visit some of the animals in the park and see if you can spot your favorite wolf. Visit www.baysmountain.com today for more information.
Enjoy Kingsport’s playgrounds:
When the weather cools off, take the family out to one of Kingsport’s wonderful playgrounds, such as Borden Park, Carousel Park, or the BlueCross Healthy Place at the Miracle Field Complex. Fall is the perfect time to play and not worry about getting burned by the slides! Visit www.kingsportparksandrecreation.org to find the perfect park for your family.
Find some fall decor:

Take a trip to a pumpkin patch:
A family trip to a local pumpkin patch is one of the best fall activities. Find a pumpkin or two and see if you can carve something spooky… or sweet! If you can’t find a farm near you, try stopping by the Kingsport Farmers Market to grab some great pumpkins to carve at home.
