Gatlinburg for Spring Break
We have booked a home and are making plans for spring break. I would love to hear from others any ideas of cool things to do and places to eat while we are there. I know we are going to Dollywood and the Dixie Stampede. We aren't planning on spending a lot more on entertainment so we need cheap or free ideas. We are buying our DW and DS tickets from the base here, which is a better price than the deals online. I didn't want to tempt waiting till we were there to find-or not find- deals advertised when we get there. The Dixie Stampede is a splurge. It is going to cost $200 for all 7 of us. The normal price is $40 for adults. That is a lot for a dinner night out but we are getting back a really good tax refund and the tax rebate.We have worked many years two or more jobs and just had a year where we had two house payments that killed us and our daughter is graduating in May so we are really due some time away and a little splurge. We plan on hiking and hopefully fishing and of coarse shopping a little. I saw there is a mirror maze with a 10 minute light show on the main strip. I did't see a price for that. Has anyone done that? I am really looking forward to getting away up in the mountains. Our house that we rented is on the top of a mountain and has a pooltable. It also has a full length of the house porch so we can sit out there and read or just look out.
