Things to do

A rich Native American heritage

Cleveland has a rich Native American history which can be discovered at the interpretive center in the Red Clay State Historic Park. While you're there, be sure to visit the Cherokee farm and the sacred spring. Another point of interest is the Hair Conrad Cabin where a Cherokee leader built his wooden cabin in the early 19th century. You may be surprised to hear it, but Tennessee produces some excellent wines. Your Cleveland vacation rental won't be far from the Ocoee and Morris Vineyards where you can taste some fine vintages.


Outdoor fun for all the family

Adventure starts right on the doorstep of your Cleveland vacation rental. This is a region that brims with potential for outdoor fun in all seasons. You can hike or bike along the forested trails or kayak downstream along the rivers through scenic national parks. Just an hour's drive from Cleveland lie the sprawling acres of the Prentice Cooper State Forest – an unspoiled pristine landscape where visitors can go hunting, cast their line in to catch a wild trout, spend a night under the stars or pack up a picnic and take the while family down for a day of fun.


Summer is busiest, but not always the best

Though the warm Tennessee weather in summer draws in crowds who come to hike and bike along the trails or stay in the Cleveland vacation rentals, spring can be equally as beautiful with blooming wildflowers filling the meadows and forests. Some think fall is the best time to visit, when the forest trees burst into golden colors and the summer crowds have subsided. Winter can be cold, but if you bundle up warm, there are plenty of fun snowy activities for all the family from building snowmen to cross-country skiing. The options are endless.

Natural features

A habitat of endless wildlife species

Tennessee is home to come of the most fascinating wildlife in the country. Differing throughout the seasons, the Prentice Cooper State Forest is the major draw for nature lovers staying in Cleveland vacation rentals. Birders will be particularly pleased by the sheer numbers of avifauna, from wood thrushes to colorful scarlet tanagers. It's not all birdlife, though. White-tailed deer bound through the forest floor while grey squirrels scamper up the trees and red foxes skulk along the river banks. If you're lucky, you may even spot a black bear or two.
