I-26 Welcome Center, Kingsport

Welcome Centers & Rest Areas

Get the most out of your Tennessee travels by stopping at a Welcome Center for information, snacks and breaks.

Tennessee Department of Tourist Development operates 16 state Welcome Centers and maintains brochures in 19 state Rest Areas across Tennessee. Both sets of facilities are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, except for I-40 Shelby County (Memphis) Welcome Center, which is closed every evening at 10pm.  All 16 Tennessee Welcome Centers have cleaning and sanitization processes in place, as well as plexiglass barriers around the counter for extra precaution.  In order to provide a safe and high-quality visitor experience for both our guests and staff, Tennessee Welcome Centers may occasionally close for short periods of time to deep clean facilities.

Tennessee Welcome Centers have a variety of brochures to help educate new and returning visitors of attractions, restaurants, hotels and more that can be found across the state. All centers are ADA compliant and have a pet area available. Find each Welcome Center's contact information below or visit their page for additional information.  For more information, contact Tennessee Welcome Centers at the email below.
