The ultimate Tacky town
Bills itself as a true western town in the east.
Having pleasant memories of West Yellowstone,Gardiner and the other tourist towns surrounding Yellowstone Park,I was looking forward to Gatlinburg.Cherokee,N.C. on the other side of the Smokies wasn't too bad[sorta nice] so it stood to reason the more famous destination would be better.
And a full blown traffic jam at 10am Sunday morning.Must be Branson,MO. sister city.
The Museum of Appalachia at Norris,Tenn. is a jewel worth visiting.I can see why Ann is so fond of her area.
