Big-city shopping sprees are a delight for teens and grownups, and amusement parks cater to the younger set, but when you want to enjoy a getaway with family members of all ages, where do you go? The Great Smoky Mountains, of course.
Does it feel like the holiday season just slips by in a rush of activity, and that you don't get to spend family time like you enjoyed when you were a kid? Those are the memories that we treasure, but too often these days we let the crazy pace of everyday life get in the way of creating those moments. The holiday season is the best time to give your kids something to cherish about their childhood, and there's no better place to do that than Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN.
Remember Halloween as a kid? You'd spend weeks creating just the right costume, anticipating an evening prowling the neighborhood with your friends in search of the best candy. Cries of "Trick or treat!" filled the chilly autumn air, as super heroes and princesses dashed from house to house in celebration of a holiday that is all about having fun. At home, you'd look through your stash, trading your sister's licorice for a Snickers bar and promising your mom you'd save "some for later."
