What an awesome experience! We checked-in to Gatlinburg late afternoon and were looking for something to do after an 11+ hour drive that wasn’t too overwhelming for our two 5 year olds. The ride up was an amazing new experience for us. We did not know what to expect when we reached the top. Such a great area to shop, explore, play (for the kids), and check out the sites. We did everything that was up there with the exception of visiting every store. My husband got a drink at the bar, the kids and I were able to get cold drinks around as well. Then we decided to get some ice cream and rock in the chairs over looking the mountains as the sun was beginning to set. Breath taking views.
