Good news for all of you outdoorsy folks…Bristol, TN has a new Bass Pro Shop!  The outdoor sports mega-store opened its doors on August 20, 2014 and is ready to welcome its Eastern Tennessee customers!

Let me just start by saying that I, personally, am not much of an outdoor-kinda-gal.  Now, that being said, I cannot help but appreciate all that Bass Pro Shop has to offer.   Despite my lack of enthusiasm and expertise for the out-of-doors (That’s putting it mildly; rather, I’m just prissy!), I do enjoy “hiking” through the store, “hunting” for treasures, “fishing” for clothing options, shopping in their gift section, and browsing other seasonal items.  Above all, they really do have unparalleled camping, hiking, fishing, shooting and other outdoor living sections.  Here you will find all the gear that you could ever dream of needing to take on your next expedition!

Did I mention that my kiddos love to visit Bass Pro too?  They get such a kick out of the water feature, fresh-water aquarium, hand-painted murals, “stuffed” animals, and boat displays.
Also, you should definitely try Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill.  This family-friendly restaurant and bowling alley (That’s right, I said bowling alley!) are located just inside of the store and boast even more opportunities for a day of fun! 

In addition to being an outdoorsman’s shopping paradise, Bass Pro Shop also offers a variety of workshops and classes to help you hone your fishing, hunting, and archery skills.  They have ladies-only workshops too (hmm…now, there’s an idea!) and activities for the kids!

Right now and through December 24, 2014, you can even bring the kids to visit Santa’s Wonderland and to get their pictures taken (FREE!) with Santa Claus! 
For information, directions, hours of operations, sales flyers, and more go to

Of course, if you’re in the area, be sure to check out The Shields Team’s property listings that are located nearby.    To do so, visit

Whether you’re looking to purchase something specific, or you just want to enjoy an afternoon of fun with your family, check out the new Bass Pro Shop in Bristol!  There is so much to see and do that you should make a day of it!!
