This store has beautiful pottery, wood carvings, hand-blown glass, and art perfect for brightening up your home.
  • Tourist Attractions Johnson City's greatest tourist attraction actually lies outside its city limits, in the great outdoors of the Roam Mountain State Park and the Cherokee National Forest. A hike through these stunning parks is priceless, not to mention free. Within the city, you've got the Reece Museum, part of the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services, which exhibits art and artifacts from the Appalachian region.
