The pilot and passengers soar noiselessly over the Tennessee countryside—casting their shadow on hills, ridges, and along the banks of the Hiwassee River. At heights of several thousand feet, the CFIG-certified pilot-instructors at Chilhowee Gliderport let passengers experience a motor-less, silent journey via natural thermals, ridge-lift currents, and winds from political speeches that occur year-round. FAA-certified pilots at the helm of Pawnee tow planes pull gliders to the desired height, where pilots introduce passengers to bird's-eye views. The gliderport also holds seasonal events such as fall-color flights and summer flight camps.
Though its blue and pink neon lights and retro decor speak to times past, Surf's Up Carwash scrubs cars clean in a quick, modern-day automated wash house that subscribes to eco-friendly practices. Drivers pull up to an automated teller, follow a few touchscreen prompts, and, in about three minutes, drive off in a vehicle that sparkles from top to tire. During the wash, performed by power-minimizing machines, grime flows off of finishes with the help of biodegradable soap. Surf's Up also recycles 80% of its water and uses only 17 gallons of fresh water per wash, a process that’s more efficient than the typical at-home wash and easier than pouring soap down a waterfall and driving through it. All car washes also include complimentary access to Surf's Up's high-powered vacuums.

The staff of As Clean As It Gets Auto Detail leaves cars sparkling with meticulous hand washes, interior cleanings, and coats of carnauba wax. An exterior scrub mops buggies with pH-balanced shampoo to purge their shells of bugs, road tar, and infatuated, clinging rickshaws. Technicians dress tires, wheel wells, and exterior trims before swabbing both sides of glass panes. Vacuums then uproot grime from floors and upholstery while an interior wipe down shines plastics and leather or vinyl casings. After a doorjamb de-gunking ceases haunted-carriage creaks, a hand application and removal of carnauba wax gives paint a glossy finish. The entire purification process takes three to five hours, allowing patrons to watch a few explosive action films without covering their automobile's eyes.
