Maybe you're not a big planner. Maybe you were thinking about traveling to the Great Smoky Mountains area this week, but you didn't already buy attractions and theater tickets online. Or maybe you've given very little thought to what you want to do once you get to the Smokies other than check into your motel or overnight rental and go wherever the wind takes you.
A few weeks ago, we shared information about how to enter the lottery to receive a parking pass to see the synchronous fireflies in the Elkmont section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Notifications went out on May 10, and unfortunately, most who applied online for a pass weren't fortunate enough to be selected (we actually count ourselves in that number).
Dollywood has been open since March, but the latest addition to the multimillion-dollar Pigeon Forge theme park didn't start welcoming visitors until this past weekend. If you missed the first few days of Wildwood Grove, never fear. This new themed section of the park will probably be around for a long time, and if you're planning a trip to the Smokies later this year, you'll still get to experience it while it still has “that new theme park smell.” Whatever that is…
You've probably heard of the term "suspension of disbelief," which is the mechanism that allows our otherwise rational minds to accept unbelievable premises in books, films and television. But with the opening of the new SkyBridge attraction in Gatlinburg on May 17, visitors may still need a moment or two to process some pretty unbelievable sights.
