As most of America is fighting cabin fever and trying to stay warm + safe, I thought it would be a good idea for us to share our fun family travel stories & pictures.
You know we can go stark mad being stuck in the house for days and days on time but have you ever thought about the times you spend with your family & the laughter & fun is infectious? Oh I do and I have.
So here is one of mines from a recent girl’s trip to Gatlinburg, TN, I took with my mom, sister, niece, and my grandbaby! We had an awesome time together.
We stayed at the Marriott in Pigeon Forge. The hotel was lovely, even tho I wasn’t allowed to eat breakfast in their lobby due to me wearing “toe shoes.” The front desk rep didn’t understand that they were shoes & not “socks”; oh well we brushed that off & headed out to explore the beauty of Gatlinburg.
I recommend that you must stop by the Gatlinburg Visitors Center. It is HUGE but also full of information. We really enjoyed stopping there & taking pictures, getting information about the area & just getting organized for our lovely drive through the National Park.
The scenery in Gatlinburg is AMAZING! We went in October of 2013 and it was still beautiful. There wasn’t any snow on ground level, hah, but it was still a tad chilly at times.
We toured the Titanic Museum. It is a wonderful and must stop for anyone visiting Gatlinburg. The stories & the information about the attendees on the Titanic doesn’t compare at all to the movie.
Oh, of course no trip would be complete without shopping. Gatlinburg has great shopping! Yeah, the hubby didn’t go this trip so I was able to REALLY shop, haha!
But sitting here this week, looking at the snow and ice that many of us are dealing with, I love to pull out my scrapbooks and look at our fun family trips & it make me thankful for the time we have together even if “cabin fever” is setting in this winter!
What makes family & family trips worthwhile is seeing the smile on the kids faces! This face is priceless….
What is your favorite family trip?
