Detroiter...I'm a Knoxville native and currently live in Nashville. I'm a 28 year old married female with an active social lifestyle and I can say that either city would be great to visit for a weekend, but...the one thing I've noticed about Nashville is the high men to women ratio. Thus your chances would be much lower. Give Knoxville a try since you have visited Nashville. Stay in a hotel downtown, and check out the nightlife around Gay Street and the Old City. Carleo's, Downtown Grill and Brewery, Preservation Pub. One night, take a cab to Tin Roof Rocky Hill and Rooster's, too. Live music is prevalent everywhere in Knoxville just like Nashville, you just have to look a little harder.

Default going to PF/Gatlinburg

Thought I'd revive this older thread since I'm going to PF/Gat. in a couple of weeks.
I'm aware of the tourist trap, traffic and overpriced issues. However, I'm a part of a group and I am just trying to make the best of it.

Are there any decently priced, good restaurants? Someone mentioned the Apple barn. Thanks
Any good golf courses?
Good dinner shows? I've contemplated going to see the Chinese acrobats ( Cirque de Chine)
I like to fly fish but I've never tried it in the Smokies. If anyone has any expertise in this area, I'd appreciate any feedback.
Finally, just any place that is a must stop for you when you go to the area.

Thank you for any feedback.

Must stop. Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Cades Cove (U.S. National Park Service)

Check out tripadvisor. There are a lot of enthusiasts for that area that go year after year and will be able to help you. A lot of us Knoxville locals don't get over there that much.
