Draw of the Mountains

There are many things that draw us to the mountains. For some it is cooler elevations, but for others it is the winding mountain roads of "The Snake" on their motorcycle.
Here you will discover the many attractions like Backbone Rock, Watuaga Lake, and our prestigious Red Tails golf course that residents and tourists alike have discovered right here in Johnson County Tennessee.

Steeped in History

We would like to invite you to please stop in at the Welcome Center as you come into Mountain City in Johnson County, TN. Inside you will find a mini-museum of historical information, artifacts, and pictures from our past.
Besides enjoying a cup of coffee inside our large open beam wood construction at the Welcome Center, you are sure to learn much about our history, our people, and our hospitality as well!
