Outdoor Living

Welcome to our Outdoor Living page where we believe life was meant to be lived outdoors at home and on the road! When we are home, we love to get out and enjoy the beauty of our surrounding Appalachian and Smoky Mountain region including Northeast Tennessee, SW Virginia, and North Carolina. We get outdoors at home by hiking and riding ATV’s. When we hit the road, we enjoy hiking in the National Parks and exploring beaches and cities around the country.

What can you do to get out at home?  Have you discovered all the great outdoor spaces in your town and community?  Have you taken the kids to explore the local and state parks in your region?  We want to inspire you to do just that!  Get outdoors in your town and explore the wonders all around you.  Go camping or hiking.  Rent a boat and enjoy a local lake. There are always great adventures to be found in any town or community in the great outdoors.

The fun doesn’t stop at home.  We believe vacations should be adventurous as well as relaxing.  Planning road trips around national parks and wonders of the world is our favorite way to travel.

Find inspiration and ideas to help you live outdoors both at home and on the road here at VeraVise Outdoor Living.

You can also find us in our Smoky Mountains group, Hiking and Outdoor family group, our ATV Facebook Page, and on Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
