We love a hot spring, but when it’s an all-natural non-commercial soaking tub on the edge of a caldera lake — YES, please! You’ll want to look for the Paulina Lake Hot Spring Trail in La Pine. This lake is gorgeous and worthy of a hike even without the hot springs, but luckily you only have to walk about 1.4 miles into the hot spring (the lake hike is about 7.5 miles if you do the entire trail.)

Water slowly bubbles up from under the earth next to the lake, where you’ll find large holes dug to capture the hot water. The water can get as high as 115 degrees…but by allowing the lake water to mix with the hot springs water, it is just about as awesome as it gets! Also, on the trail is an explosion of sparkling obsidian. My Minecraft-raised kids loved it.

This is one of our favorite places to visit when we visit Knoxville. It's so close to downtown Knoxville, but feels far away. Love the hiking trails, scenic overlooks, and boardwalks along the river!

Integratron was originally constructed by a man who believed that the plans were given to him by aliens from Venus. He claimed it offered rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel. He’s passed on…three sisters own it now. While they don’t make the same claims, they still insist there is a geomagnetic vortex here…and perfect -perfect- acoustics.

I love this hot springs more than others in the region that we visited because it is more natural, more laid back, more chill.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The upper level includes 6 bathtubs that fill from the mountain. The water is very warm and continuously flowing so your always in a “new” tub of water. ⁠⁠I also love that it’s mineral water and not sulphur water…no rotten egg smell here.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
There is also a lower level with two pools – a shallow and a deep one. ⁠⁠That’s where we spent most of our time, soaking and relaxing. They offer rustic cabins and school buses to overnight here if you wish. We leveraged their RV park.⁠ when we visited.

Bechtler is one of the most amazing art museums in the southeast, and has an extensive collection of modern art. Highly recommend the Levine Museum Access Ticket so you can visit The Mint Museum and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts too.

There are so many great things to do when visiting Helen, but the Georgia Mountain Coaster is one of our favorites! The kids had the best time!

We enjoyed a guided tour of The Neon Museum known as the Neon Boneyard, home to the iconic neon signs chronicling Las Vegas history. We saw more than 250 rescued, refurbished and re-illuminated neon signs that trace back to the early days of Sin City. ⁠⁠ Our kids loved it!

It was so fun and amazing, great for kids, and they had delicious food. Don’t skip this dining destination. It lives up to the hype.

Buckskin Gulch is the world’s longest slot canyon, at 13 miles. It’s also the tallest, with parts reaching as high as 500 feet. If you ask me, it’s also the prettiest – at least of the half-dozen or so that we explored.

There's nothing better than taking a dolphin cruise around Orange Beach! Such a fun, family-friendly experience!
