Here is my TOP 10 for this part of the country...
|Sevierville, TN Outlet mall|
9) Sevierville, TN
|One I actually went to|
8) Pigeon Forge, TN
7) Three Bears General Store
This place has all the souvenirs you can imagine! Their Christmas section is not too shabby either. but the main reason to go here, is to see and feed real Bears!!!!
|Aren't they cute?|
|We're feeding them apples and grapes. :-)|
6) Wonders of Flight & Wonderworks
We had a real fun time riding this ginormous helium ballon. The view of Pigeon Forge was spectacular.
|Ready to fly!|
Wonderworks is a fun amuement/science lab that the kids had a blast in.
|Some bubble fun|

5) Terry Envaswood Magic Show
Truly worth watching, this show. It is fun, family and kid friendly and we get to meet the man after show! In fact, so cool , our son wanted to be a magician afterwards!
Make sure to come early, no seat numbers, so if you wan to participate, you better sit closer to the stage!
4) Dixie Stampede
Dolly Parton's very own Musical Extravaganza! One of the funnest thing to do if your ever in this town. We love, love, love this show. It has a pre-show of some awesome live bluegrass music...
And the real show is a delight. Amazing stunts, all sorts of animals and of course lots of food! A whole chicken + chops + corn + soup + bread + pie!
We've seen Medieval times, but I think Dixie Stampede is way fun-ner! Yeee-haaah!
3) Food & Taffy
All sorts of restos abound in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and all the places we went did not dissapoint. Bubba Gump and Callhouns topped my list!
|At Bubba Gumps|
|Yummy ribs at Calhuons|
2) Gatlinburg, TN
This is place is a gem. It has almost a European feel because of the surrounding mountains and all the small shops. I love this small town.
|Fantastic view from above|
1) Smoky Mountains and the rest of Mother Nature
Of course, nothing beats the majestic Smoky mountains. Wish we could have stayed longer and all the roads were open. Some ice still around that made us unable to go to the highest viewing peak. We went only 5,500++ above sea-level instead of 6,500++!
We would definitely be back again and for sure, and next time, we'll be renting a cabin in the mountains to enjoy more of #1!
Hope your Spring Break was awesome too!
