Vacationers turn Local in Smoky Mountains

Whenever we go on vacation we say let's move here it's so beautiful, there is so much to do, and the locals are fantastic. Well that's exactly what happened we fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park​ and all the attraction in Sevierville and now we live here and rent out our cabin so others can experience what we did. Cheers to vacations they change our Geographical location for a week or a life time. Day1
We wanted to see the zoo animals when they are active, so we got up early and visit the Knoxville Zoo
Day 2
Free things to do! 
We wanted to see Elk living in nature, luckly that evening about sunset we spotted a herd in the field at Onoconaluftee Welcome center, North Carolina. We visited the Heritage museum while we waited for Elk to arrive, bring a chair or sit on the porch
Earlier we had made a picnic lunch and went swimming at the most beautiful swimming hole, The small water falls were perfect and a small pool with still water made a safe haven for the baby to wade in. Corner of Blue Ridge Parkway and 441.
Day 3
If you want to laugh and have dinner at he same time book reservations at Hatfield and McCoys Dinner Theatre.
Day 4
Put a down payment on an acre of land on English mountain, Sevierville Tennessee could nor believe the mountain view of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and it comes with water and sewer. Found a 75 foot water fall in our new neighborhood, family had to try it out. I mean really they climbed it. 
Day 5
We were looking forward to visiting the Titanic attraction. This is the real deal these are the explorers who we saw on Cable TV shooting them Titanic Documentary. Remember when  the submarine found the ship wreck on the bottom of the ocean i was screaming, look the Titanic. Tip, one the tour the Captain was on that sub talk to him he will show you a piece of the ship in his pocket under glass.
Day 6
Dollywood theme park. We parked at Patriot park and took Dollywood Trolley to avoid $12 parking fee and the traffic jamb at closing. We decided to go on the weekend day when Dollywood has longer hours. Parade is a must see. We made reservation for our dog to stay at Dollywood when we walked the her we managed to eat our picnic lunch waiting in the truck. We planned to see the shows when it was hot and ride the busiest rides right when we enter the park or during dinner hour cause lines are smaller.
Day 7
Drive home. Plan next vacation we are coming back for more.
