We consider ourselves lucky to have a 500,000 acre backyard only 2.5 miles from our front door. That backyard is, of course, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Whether your interest lies in fishing, hiking or photography, the park can rise to the occasion. Anyone from a beginner to an experienced mountain climber can find a trail to suit their needs. A hike to Laurel Falls or the top of Mount LeConte is not to be missed. As usual, the view from Clingman’s Dome is always a crowd pleaser. If you prefer to drive, then take a lazy drive around the loop in Cades Cove or plan a day trip to Tellico Plains and the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest along the Cherohala Skyway. The views from the skyway are second to none. Different times of the year bring a variety of natural wonders to the area. Many of our wild flowers and migrating birds flourish in late April and early May and during June and July rhododendrons bloom in abundance. Autumn’s display of color usually peaks in late October. Any season is a good time to see the many wild animals that inhabit our mountains. However, please be aware that bears are wild and potentially dangerous. If one approaches your car, stay inside with the windows closed. Feeding bears and other wildlife encourages the animals to behave unnaturally and violates park regulations. Please do not feed the bears.

For those of you who like to shop till you drop, Five Oaks Outlet Mall is the place to go during your stay. With high-end stores such as: Coach, Polo, Guess, Harry & David, Gap, Nautica, Tommy Hilfiger, Liz Claiborne and Lenox, the shopping experience to be had there is second to none. By the way, swing by The Chop House to keep those shopping batteries charged. If you like old and aged better than new and shiny, then stop by the Riverside Antique Mall on Highway 66 in Sevierville. You can spend hours looking at anything from Indian relics to antique china.
Did you ever want to walk under the sea? Well now you can. Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg houses exotic creatures from all over the world. Visitors can see piranhas in the Tropical Rainforest, colorful tangs in the Coral Reef, a giant Pacific octopus in the Gallery of Seas and get face to face with the sharks in Shark Lagoon. The aquarium also boasts a 340 foot underwater glide-path tunnel to put you right in the middle of the action. The aquarium also offers classroom presentations, dives and fish feeding shows. This is the one spot in the Smokies that truly does offer something for all ages.
No trip to the Smokies would be complete without a day at Dollywood and Dolly’s Splash Country. Ride the Tennessee Tornado (with speeds reaching 65-miles-per-hour), the Blazing Fury and Daredevil Falls. Dreamland Forest is the place for children featuring America’s largest interactive tree house. Also, there are over 40 live musical performances plus local crafters exhibiting arts such as grain milling, leathersmithing, lye soap making, wagon making, woodcarving, basket weaving, blacksmithing, broom construction, candy making and glass blowing. New for 2001 is Dolly’s Splash Country, a 25 acre water park with family water rides, speed slides and a huge wave pool. It’s North versus South at the Dixie Stampede, but you will be too busy eating with your hands to reach for your guns. A long time favorite for many years, this Smokies style rodeo makes for great entertainment and a great meal at the same time.
Speaking of lunch, where to eat is an integral part of any successful vacation. When atmosphere is as important as the meal, The Peddler and The Park Grill restaurants in Gatlinburg always fill the bill. Dine by the river at the Peddler and experience one of the best salad bars in Sevier County. Not only is the salad bar tops, but when was the last time your steak was custom cut at your table? Now, if you are impressed by architecture, then the massive timbers of The Park Grill give you the feeling of the lodges of old. Once you have thoroughly explored the building, sit down to one of their wild berry cobblers with vanilla ice cream, it can't be beat! Another local favorite is Sister Cat's Cafe in Townsend. Being only a few miles from Wears Valley, makes Sister Cat's easy to get to on those busy summer and fall days. They have a variety of menu items to choose from and really cannot be beat when its time for lunch in the Great Smoky Mountains.
