Road Trip 2012: Gatlinburg

Road Trip 2012 2nd Stop : Gatlinburg, TN

We didn't really have a clue as to what Gatlinburg was about. We thought we were headed into the mountains, which we did, but we ended up in tourist trap of neon lights. Our camp ground was a short distance from both the Smokey Mountain National Park and the town of Gatlinburg so we got to experience it all. The shops in the town reminded me of my beach spot only with out the salty air and sun tans. It was fun to walk around for a night or two but we are very happy that we missed the crazy tourist season there. That happened the night before we rolled into town.

Have you ever been to the smokey town of Gatlinburg? What did you think?

My husband & I were suppose to go last year for my birthday, (didn't make it) then our anniversary, (Something came up) then his birthday, (we ended up buying our house) and we tried to go a couple of months ago but our schedules conflitced. I just don't think it's meant to be lol!
