Pigeon Forge, Tennessee 4/28 to 5/2

We moved on to Pigeon Forge, TN after a wonderful visit in Kingston and Knoxville! Let me tell you, the Great Smokey Mountains are a sight to behold! And there is plenty of entertainment to be had in Pigeon Forge and Gatlenburg, TN! So many great shows - just not enough time to see them all! We were fortunate enough to see some of the most popular ones. This one is "Comedy Tonight" - good music and fantastic comedy too.Most all the shows are presented in beautiful buildings and settings nestled in the valley of the Great Smokies. We saw a different show every night and sometimes were able to fit in an afternoon one too!One of our favorite shows was at the "Smith Family Dinner Theatre". We saw a few Elvis impersonators, but this one was the best! The dinner buffet was delicious too! Our friends, John and Robbie came over to spend the night and go to the show with us. They drove over from Asheville, NC. We all had a wonderful time at the show and just hanging out together.
This is one of the camp sites where we stayed in Pigeon Forge. Gorgeous! You can purchase this lovely sliver of real estate for only $200,000! Just bring your own house! Hey, you have to consider all the amenities and you do have an unobstructed view of the Smokeys! There are also beautiful log cabins for sale!
This is our good friend, Steve Hall. Walt somehow put his picture in the wrong section of the blog!
Me, John and Robbie at the Smith Family show. We also took time out for a drive through the Smokey Mountain National Park. Unfortunately, we were too busy looking around at the beautiful scenery to remember to take pictures! The Old Mill area of Pigeon Forge was a delightful experience too. A quaint, old fashioned town with lots of shops and restaurants from the good old days! We especially enjoyed the ice cream parlor and the country store.
Of course, we had to tour the Muscle Car Museum! Walt loves the GTOs! It's not like he never had one.... or two of them. This one looks a little familiar - except ours wasn't a convertible.
Here we are having a delicious lunch at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant. Beautiful weather for a porch picnic!
Walt always manages to catch me in the most unflattering of poses, like taking pics of me while I'm talking! His excuse is that I never stop talking!  This one was taken in a quaint little area of Pigeon Forge, called Old Mill Town. A beautiful area that makes you feel like you are back in the old days. We especially enjoyed the country store and the old fashioned ice cream parlor!
So far on our journey,  Pigeon Forge is one of my favorite places. So many things to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and hope to visit the area again soon. Hey, we have to go back - we didn't even make it to Dollywood!
Next stop - Williamsburg, VA and then on to our old home - Fredericksburg, VA
Stay tuned...... for more adventures with the Wilsons
