Gatlinburg, Tenn. Post 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were quite shocked by the commercialization of Downtown Gatlinburg, Tenn. It really reminded us of our trip to Niagara Falls and we weren’t expecting that. But, the free moonshine, whiskey and wine tastings were a nice treat! The kids and my sister took a ride up a ski lift thing for a few different views of the region and we played in a few {freezing} rivers and creeks to cool off on hot days.

But let’s not forget the whole point of the vacation…being with family. So, we spent quite a bit of time doing just that. Yes, the kids played too much on the xbox here and there, but we also enjoyed time together in the hot tub, on hikes where there was no cell signal (gasp!), white water rafting and just hanging out watching a movie on the couch. It was pretty fantastic. I still may need a few years before I’m ready to do it again, though 🙂
