Morristown is located in the lush, fertile valley between the Great Smoky Mountains and the rugged Clinch Mountains in East Tennessee. Surrounded by lakes, rolling hills, mountains and natural history, there are many ways to enjoy the scenery. Sportsmen call it the "Lakeway Area." Locally, you can hike, swim or enjoy the playgrounds at Panther Creek State Park and Cherokee Park. In just an hour's drive, you can be at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Rocky Mount, Sycamore Shoals, the bustling city of Knoxville or the resort communities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
