During our next few days we spent in the area. We took in the many sights to be seen. Along with a side trip to the North Carolina Mts. and a day at Dollywood. We played lots of mini golf as that is our thing. Ripleys has many fun courses in the area and of course you have to play Hillbilly Golf. A second trip to the aquarium before out the door. The Christmas Store which my husband has fond memories with his mother of. The Old Mill Restaurant which my grandfather took me too. Also took the ski lift up to Ober Gatlinburg then a ride back down on the mountain coaster after playing around a bit. We took an opportunity to drive around the mountains taking in the views and checking out the pretty mountain cabins.
Our trip over to North Carolina was three fold. We took the kids ruby mining - what kids doesn't like digging in mud for treasure. Then some Native American culture in Cherokee and a drive / small hike in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
The day at Dollywood had something for everyone. My husband normally doesn't care for amusement parks; but
Hello All and Thanks for Stopping By!
I love to travel and explore - for now just the great USA via road trips. We started with trips with the kids then now by ourselves or other adult family members. In the future we will take take adventures with the grandbabies - they just need to grow a bit more.
We love to gamble, explore nature - short hikes, photograph and just generally have fun!
I have decided to write in some of our older trips
