The location of the resort was a little bit of a walk uphill from the main street of Gatlinburg, but thankfully there were trolley stops along the way. Just like any vacation, by the end of the week, we finally had the trolley schedule all figured out.

Speaking of trolleys, there is also one line that will take you to Pigeon Forge for $1.00. It was so nice leaving the driving to someone else. We took it one day to Dollywood, and another day to check out some of the other sights and a winery trail. (It is a given that we will find the wineries wherever we are vacationing).
There is plenty to do in downtown Gatlinburg.
Highly recommend the Space Needle, Ripley's Aquarium, and the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery.

Many great places to eat including Bubba Gump's and our favorite, Blaines Grill and Bar.
We were lucky enough to be there over July 4th, and Gatlinburg is known for having the first 4th of July parade in the nation. Midnight! Definitely worth seeing.
