Thankfully we live exactly 2 1/2 hours away from the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg TN area, and typically visit at least once a year. It’s a really fun vacation spot for families, and you’ll never run out of activities to do. No matter what your interests are, Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg TN never disappoints.
This time around, we booked a cabin through Alpine Mountain Chalets, and really enjoyed our cabin stay. Our cabin, Bear Necessities, was very spacious and with all of the amenities, we felt right at home. Of course, the boys loved the Jacuzzi! 😉
On Saturday morning, we took the kids to Ripley’s Aquarium and they had a blast seeing all the fish, sharks, penguins, and even getting to pet a few stingrays. (completely safe of course) This aquarium does an awesome job of catering to children and has an entire kids playground area with lots of interactive exhibits for learning.
It was so nice to have a weekend away from everything and to really just relax with the kids and have some much needed fun. Just seeing the smiles on my kids’ faces when we all get to do things together as a family, is priceless.
This impromptu weekend away also reminded me the importance of learning to just live in the moment and have fun. Too often, I focus on planning every detail out, and it’s much more relaxing to sometimes just go with the flow.
Hope each of you have a wonderful week, and thanks for stopping by!-Cara
