Go beyond the traditional scoop of ice cream, and give Curl de la Creme a try! Instead of scoops the ice cream here starts in a liquid form, its poured onto a freezing try, then worked and pushed around until it becomes solid, and finally rolled in log like forms and put into a cup to eat. You can pick your base ice cream flavor, added anything from cookies to strawberries to be added to your ice cream while mixing, and then you can add even more toppings at the end! Curl de la Creme offers a delightful and fun way to eat a classic frozen treat.

7. Wine Tasting

Make a whole day of or make several dates out of following along with the Rocky Top Wine Trail. It’s comprised of five local wineries and one moonshine distillery. Taste wines that are made from local ingredients like muscadine grapes. You could find the perfect bottle to bring back with you and have during dinner later.
