Our area is certainly filled with great things to do with the onset of warmer weather and looming summer vacations. If you're looking for a truly unique experience, you should definitely check out diving this summer. Just over in Kingsport is Smoky Mountain Divers, a PADI training facility and local chapter of DivePirates, which enables a disabled person to learn to dive and enjoy the 'zero G" underwater experience.  The Dive Pirates Foundation's mission statement is: Based on camaraderie, compassion, freedom to dive, and the Code of Conduct, Dive Pirates will support, train, equip, and provide dive travel to individuals with disabilities through Classified Scuba Diving. Smoky Mountain Divers just became certified to train disabled divers, and is as well offers training to several states, including Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Get your dive on this summer!



Also just over in Kingsport is one of The Shields Team's newest listings, 929 Shadyside Drive. Filled with custom finishes, and open floorplan, this home was built by our sellers to enjoy in their retirement, and features high end appliances, fixtures and surfaces, like it's Honduran mahogany front door that welcomes your guests! If you're in the market for a home in the Kingsport area, call us today for your private tour!
