We will be visiting for a convention with our children. Any ideas for things to do? Our children are young so hiking and camping is out of the question.
It has been a while since we went however there is still plenty of things for you and your young family to do. Isnt Dollywood in that area. I havent been ther but i heard it is fun. There are also plenty of shops and i do remember riding a chair lift up a mountain. That was alot of fun. A word of caution, When i went my kids were very young too. I noticed this man was following us throughout the stores. I knew something was up and i started to yell at him. He then ran away. I approached a police officer and he told me he was probably trying to steal my diaper bag which was positioned between the seats of the double stroller. He said it happens all the time. Be safe where ever you travel.
Parrot mountain was fantastic. My wife and I enjoyed it as much as my two boys (3&5). Dollywood was awesome and so was the Dixie Stampede. We had a great time. Shop around for a nice cabin. Depending on the time of year, you can get one for the same price or even less than the cost of a hotel room.
We didn't enjoy the deer park. It was kinda like a petting zoo with exotic animals there. The smell was pretty bad and there were flies everywhere.
