Dog Walking in Bluff City

Bluff City is a small Tennessee town with a population of just over 1,500 people. Bluff City is situated on the banks of beautiful Boone Lake, and it also played an important part in the Revolutionary War. Today, Bluff City's motto is "People Working Together to Help Each Other," and that spirit is evident throughout the city. The people are friendly, the sights are beautiful, and you're just a short drive from the bigger city of Bristol, Tennessee. 

For a unique adventure in the Bluff City area with your dog, make the ten-minute drive to Blountville, Tennessee and visit the Appalachian Caverns. These caverns were first used more than 1,300 years ago, and there's also a log cabin on the property that was built in 1777. This historic site is not only an excellent place to take in the beauty of nature, but it's also an educational and interesting activity. The owners of Appalachian Caverns are dog lovers, and your dog can join you at the caverns as long as they are on a leash. There are a few different tour types to choose from, and you also have the option of partaking in gem mining.

Bluff City doesn't have an off-leash dog park of its own, but there are a handful of other dog-friendly activities nearby that you won't want to miss!

Right in the heart of the Downtown district in Johnson City sits a five-acre park that's a lovely spot to spend a day with your family, and that includes your dog, of course! Founders Park was built from a stormwater retention project, and now a gorgeous stream runs through the park, which has solved the Downtown district's former flooding problem. Founders Park is a peaceful place to walk your dog on a leash, and there are also sculptures to admire and an open-air pavilion. Several community events are held at Founders Park, including parties and festivals, so there's always something to do!
