Another way that Jeff and I enjoy our motorcycles is by taking destination rides. We pick a place we both would like to visit, then Jeff maps out a fun and interesting way to get there.

A few weeks ago, we decided we wanted to finally visit the Greene County History Museum in Greeneville, TN. Greeneville is a great historic town with lots of interesting sites to visit. We’ve been there many times, but never found our way into the Greene County Museum.  Now that we’ve been, we can say without a doubt- it’s well worth the time. Plus, Jeff planned a great route for us that was beautiful and fun to ride. Here’s how our day unfolded….

Jeff kicks us off with a video:

Our route will take us through Dandridge heading toward Newport.

We stopped along the bridge heading to Newport for a few photos.
The water is always beautiful here in East Tennessee.

After traveling through Newport and Del Rio, we reach North Carolina heading toward Hot Springs.

Almost to Hot Springs.
There’s me, Pamo, definitely enjoying the day!
Hot Springs is a great place to visit.
A friendly Hot Springs native snapped our photo for us! So nice.
Downtown Hot Springs in the background. No time to visit today.
Heading toward Hurricane, NC.
We passed by the Bear River Lodge.

From Hurricane, NC we took 208 North heading back into Tennesee. We then took 107 into Greeneville.

Here’s the dam just outside of Greeneville.

Once in Greeneville, we went straight to our destination.

The History Museum is right on the edge of historic downtown Greeneville, located in a large former school brick building.
Here’s the entrance. The museum is free to view but leave a few dollars if you can to help keep it going.

Following are just some of the sites inside the museum. It’s three full levels of historic displays!

Just outside, near the entrance to the museum, is the first motorized fire truck bought by the town of Greeneville in 1917.
The truck is enclosed inside a glass building.

After we finished at the museum, we got a bite to eat, then headed back to Knoxville. We really enjoyed both our ride to Greeneville and our destination of the Greene County Museum.

Next time you get ready to ride, plan a destination ride and take a fun and interesting route to get there. Then, take a different way home. You’ll have a blast!

Until next time,

Jeff and Pam
