One of our all-time favorite stops was Historic Rugby
, a Victorian utopian village in northeastern Tennessee. With your interest in antiques and books, you will surely enjoy a tour of this delightful town.
For a change of pace, tour Oak Ridge National Laboratory
or visit the the American Museum of Science and Energy
that has displays on the Manhattan Project.
Sorry, but I don't remember exactly where we camped while visiting the area.
We have relatives around Springfield and enjoy driving on Route 60 across southern Missouri.
Have a wonderful trip.
