“A Fall Beauty”
We just returned from a fall trip to Pigeon Forge and let me just say the scenery was breathtaking!!!! We stayed in a beautiful condo at Whispering Pines and our view from the rocking chairs on our balcony was so amazing. The leaves on the trees were brilliant in color and the crisp fall mountain air was very welcomed by our family! The condo had a fireplace with gas burning logs in it which we used everyday just for the coziness of it and also a big Jacuzzi tub which made bath time for the little divas all the more fun!
The city was decked out for the 13th Annual Harvestfest. There were fall decorations and pumpkins throughout the city and at most of the attractions which made for great photo backgrounds. Our little divas are used to mommy saying “Awe, isn’t that pretty….stand next to it for a picture.”
Our trip was a short one but we had 3 adventure packed days that included Dollywood, 2 fabulous dinner shows, MagiQuest, indoor skydiving, a Country Tonite show, a drive over to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, shopping, and of course, plenty of good Southern food and sweet tea. Look for future blog posts on these attractions.
One afternoon, the girls and I rode one of the cute trolleys that runs throughout the city. What an affordable ride if you just want to take everything in and not worry about driving or finding a parking spot. It costs us a whopping 50 cents per rider and the driver was very friendly and helpful.
We also made a stop at the Pigeon Forge Rotary Club Craft Fair and got to check out the works of some talented locals. From sand art, to jewelry, to home decorations, to stained glass, to personalized bags, there was plenty to see. However, it was hard for mommy to do much shopping because she was constantly swatting little hands off of breakables!
When the day came for us to leave and fly back home, the whole family was sad and wishing that we could stay and take in more of the fall beauty in Pigeon Forge.
