Everyone loves a great vacation, but given the current economic crunch, finding an amazing vacation spot, that is also affordable, is a real challenge. Gettysburg attractions – The fact is; most families can’t afford to spend a week touring Europe’s hotspots, Asia’s wonders, or staying at America’s top resorts. So what are your options? Most people think it’s a choice between spending money you don’t have, or wasting your valuable vacation time on a destination that promises to bore you to tears. If those were the only options available, I’d stay home, too. But fortunately for all of us, they’re not.
Gettysburg attractions – So cheer up, because it’s time to reveal some amazing vacation spots the whole family can enjoy, and best of all, they won’t break your budget in the process.
This tiny town, picturesquely nestled in the Smoky Mountains is my family’s all-time favorite vacation spot. Not only is Gatlinburg conveniently located, and affordable, but best of all, your family will never run out of exciting, adventurous and entertaining things to do.
Where to begin: Gettysburg attractions – Park your car, and check out Gatlinburg’s ever-bustling Main Street. You’ll be amazed by how many fun things are available to kids of all ages. Play arcades, buy candy, go up the Space Needle, shop, play an exciting round of mountainside mini-golf, or dine at some surprisingly nice restaurants, too. But wait, the fun is just beginning; be sure to check out the Star Car Museum, Ripley’s Aquarium, and they Believe It or Not Museum, which are always popular spots for everyone. Of course, no trip to Gatlinburg would be complete without riding a chair lift, or gondola high up the mountainside for a breathtaking view.
Need a break from the endless activities of this mountain paradise? An easy solution to that dilemma is waiting for you right on the edge of town. All you need to do is pack a basket lunch, and drive a couple blocks to the edge of town, where you’ll immediately be surrounded by an incredible wild place, called the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Some of my favorite “natural” destinations include: Chimney Tops Picnic Area, Newfound Gap Scenic Overlook, and Cades Cove. Before you go, however, I’d recommend stopping at the Sugarland Visitors Center along the way, to pick up maps, discover the history of the area, and get some helpful tips and suggestions to insure a safe and exciting time outdoors.
