Hands-on Arts and Crafts in the Smokies

One of the great parts about traveling is learning the
culture of the area you are visiting. Being able to get involved makes it even

Our Smoky Mountain Home Away From Home

Last summer, my family and I had the amazing honor
to be part of the PBS television show “Getting Away Together” as it filmed in
the Smoky Mountains.  We have always said that we were like walking
billboards for the area, as we are not shy about telling our friends of our
love of the Smokies and giving them tips and pointers as they plan their own vacations
here, but we never dreamed that we would have the opportunity to share our
story with so many people! Continue reading

Wears Valley Barn Offers Lots of Options

One of the lesser-known areas of our Smoky Mountains
is Wears Valley. Named for a Revolutionary War veteran, Samuel Wear, who built
a fort near the entrance to the valley, it runs parallel to the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park. This beautiful valley offers a variety of things to do
while you’re here and a great place to have a wedding, meeting or retreat.

Come See the Smokies in Your RV

a car or a plane to reach our destination. A plane usually gets you there
faster, while a car trip usually costs less and lets you enjoy the scenery.
There is another option that involves taking your vehicle and your home at the
same time – that’s right, an RV.

A Bed and Breakfast for Your Next Mountain Stay?

Usually when I travel, I stay in a hotel. And that’s
probably true for most travelers. But when I can, I like to find a bed and
breakfast for a different perspective of the area. Lots of times, a B&B is
an old farmhouse, or historic building, with a more intimate feel and a chance
to get to know the owners and the other visitors. We’ve got several in Sevier
County, and this time, we’re going to look at the
Blue Mountain Mist Bed and Breakfast
and Cottages.

Smokies Romance

As I’m sure many of you know, this year is the 1,516
anniversary of Valentine’s Day. Ok, maybe you didn’t know that, but you do know
that on Tuesday, Feb. 14, there will be romance in the air. That means cards,
candy, flowers, poems, a set of 4 new tires (hey, romance is different for
everybody). And perhaps the one thing that most symbolizes romance is a
wedding.
