Day 7: Pigeon Forge is a kids' Vegas

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 19, 2014

Day 7: Leaving. Wonderworks in Pigeon Forge. $23.99 adult, $14.99 kid = $75 (after $2 off coupon). Overnight stay in Sleep Inn Sevierville.

Pigeon Forge is about a 20-30 mins from the entrance of the Smokies. But it took us over an hour to drive from the park to Pigeon Forge because it is bumper to bumper traffic. Worked out to do it on the way out. Stayed a night in Sevierville (2km from Wonderworks). ...

Day 6: Fishing at Tumbling Waters Campground & Trout Pond. $4/lb. (we caught 2 trout and paid $6). All bait and fishing gear provided. Was supposed to rent a pontoon boat from Almond Boat Dock($150/4 hours) but rained all day.

Day 5: Attempted a quiet, lazy day

Day 4: All about riding!

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 16, 2014

... the Forest was a very nice hike - a little challenging as there was a steady climb. The boys quit halfway through, claiming boredom, retracing their steps to the parking lot. We girls pushed on and enjoyed the walk. Sadly, I missed the giant trees somehow. I'm still not sure how I missed seeing them - maybe I missed a spur on the trail?

After all this, we rejoined Phan and Thao at the motorcycle rental place and headed back for a bonfire at the cabin.

Day 3: Treasure Hunting!

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 15, 2014

Day 3: Rose Creek Gem Mine, 4 buckets of dirt for $20

Rates on their website: Dig-Your-Own from the mining tunnel: 2 for $10, all refills $5 (10 refills for $45. Minor miners, 8 & under can help adults)

The mine was in Franklin, so off we went on this day's adventure. Thao ended up paying just for herself and got 2 buckets of dirt which were perfect for Mika and Esen. Phan stood back and ...
