Will take the boy out to Jesse James' house.. Might do a BBQ tour and will try to do an authentic KC Steakhouse.

Then mid July, The other kid and I are going to Gatlinburg for a long weekend. Got us a cabin up there.. I'm not a huge fan of Gatlinburg myself.. Go-Kart track, Antique Shop, Pancake House, Mini-Golf, lather, rinse repeat. But I think he'll enjoy it, and in the evenings, I'll enjoy porch sittin'.
I went camping with a group last summer in GSMNP for a few days. We drove all over the area in the daytime going to places like Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Cherokee Nation, and of course the Smoky Mountains; my first time ever spending time in those places. The area between Knoxville and Asheville is very, very touristy which I think is great for families.

That's one place that I haven't been to and probably should put it on my list: northern Wisconsin. I've been through the southern part of the state but not the north. I've heard people talk about how much they enjoyed going to the Dells. Is that located in northern Wisconsin?

Can't go wrong with one of my all-time fav cities; SF. I visit it at least once a year - most recently 5 months ago.

No, southern half. Maybe 1/3rd the way up right in the center. Its a touristy attraction place, a dense one.


100000% different from Northern Wisconsin, which I think is beautiful.

No, the Dells is in central WI just nw of Madison. The scenery of the actual Dells is nice but the water parks, gokart tracks and side shows are not for me.

June: North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Zion N.P.
July: Grand Teton N.P and Yellowstone. We're showing my nephew from California around.
Camping at Bear Lake in Idaho for a few days for my birthday
August/September: Gros Ventre campground outside of Grand Teton N.P.

That's about it before the snow starts up again.

We did the Rome, Florence, Venice thing in early May before they get crazy busy. We use the summer house all summer so it's kind of pointless to travel. Sail on the sailboat. Beach. Bicycling. After the beach closes and the boat is hauled, we're doing a rental house in Sanxenxo Spain for a week with some days in Porto 2 hours to the south on either end of that.

We have a trip to Boston in August for a wedding. We don't really like to travel in the summer when everyone on a school holiday schedule is traveling.

Bermuda is a gorgeous place to visit. My husband's family is there so we go often and never get tired of it.

Sounds like you're talking about the Maggie Valley area. But, yeah.. The whole area is.. kitsch? From Maggie Valley all the way up through Gatlinburg. I don't know.. I'm not a huge fan, but I think the boy will enjoy it BECAUSE of the touristy stuff.. Ripley's museum and the dinner shows and the like.

I more enjoy being out in the mountains and the views and the like while up there.

There's about something for everyone.. If you're into alcohol, hit some of the distilleries, and even if you're not, they're neat to go through. For $5 you can pretty much get blasted off your butt from the 'tastings'.. There's also wine makers and wine tastings if you're not into the hard stuff.

Plenty of restaurants. Don't go to a chain place while you're there. Real good seafood place that I can't remember the name of right now.

Not sure if the National Enquirer museum will be open when you go (or when I go for that matter) but that's something new coming to the area that looks interesting, at least once.

If you like antiques.. Lord, there's a shop on every corner.

And if you get sick of it all.. There's a casino over in Maggie Valley.
