At VeraVise Outdoor Living, our family has been living & playing in the Great Smoky Mountains and Appalachian region for more than 35 years. Let us help you create and outdoor lifestyle for your family!

Work With Us

Welcome to VeraVise Outdoor Living where we believe life is meant to be lived outdoors or on the road!  We are most happy when we are doing both!

Our family loves road trips and outdoor travel. We try to incorporate the national parks  and outdoor adventures in all our travels. When we can’t be on the road, we love hiking, exploring the Smokies, and creating an outdoor lifestyle at home. 

When at home in upper northeast Tennessee, we hike the Appalachian Trail,  explore The Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge.  We also enjoy local camping, hiking, waterfall chasing, and ATV riding.   

When we aren’t hiking or taking road trips to explore places like Yosemite National Park, and the Grand Tetons, you will find us making memories at the beach or with a certain famous Mouse at Disney.

Website Statistics

VeraVise Outdoor Living was started in March 2017 (under the name VeraVise WOW travel) as an outlet for our outdoor travel passion. 

We combined our love of outdoor travel with our love for the mountains, camping, hiking, and all things outdoors to create a site dedicated to helping our readers have an outdoor lifestyle for their families. 

Since beginning the website, we have had the opportunity to work with our local tourism board as well as begin a growing Twitter chat for Disney fans and two active Facebook groups.
