The On the Go family of sites started with coverage in Orlando, Florida, where Shelley Caran envisioned a digital presence that would give central Florida’s tourists insights into the best ways to vacation through photos, videos, and stories she collected as she explored. Shelley met Morgan Crutchfield, another Orlando theme park adventurer who had founded her own site and e-magazine, in 2012 and the two realized their styles brought complimenting perspectives to vacation planning coverage. 

In 2015, Morgan’s photography took her home to East Tennessee. On a trip into the Great Smoky Mountains, she realized that the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area was bustling with visitors who could use the same kind of information to plan the best mountain vacations. She called Shelley, knowing that there had always been an intent to expand On the Go, and the two made plans.

Today, Shelley and Morgan are so excited to bring you On the Go in East Tennessee, a site dedicated to bringing you all the tips, tricks, and insider information you need to plan, travel, and enjoy the mountain destinations of East Tennessee like locals.
