Explore Gatlinburg on Spring Break

“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” – Robin Williams-

Last week  Little Travelentz has school spring break for a week and my  husband and I decided to go in Gatlinburg,Tn with my in-laws. Our first choice was to stay in Gatlinburg,Tennessee area but the hotel we wanted   that has indoor pool and jacuzzi is full so we ended up in Pigeon forge.

We stayed a day in Gatlinburg area and explore by foot. Too many things to see so little time so  we all agreed what we wanted to see and where we going. We kinda work with my in-laws health condition when they want to eat and sit we all do so they won't get tired that much and enjoy the day.
