Did you hear that 2018 was the wettest year on record for East Tennessee? That’s what the Tennessee Valley Authority said. Our family ends up at Dollywood in the rain a lot. But, it doesn’t bother us. There are lots of perks to spending a rainy day at the park—just see this blog my [...]

One of the best deals inside Dollywood is the refillable souvenir mugs. I did some math and found that buying one of those mugs could save you $3700! It’s true—if you visit Dollywood every day the park is open in 2019 and if you buy as many drinks as my family does. Watch this video [...]

Dollywood’s Festival of Nations is a cultural showcase. It includes authentic entertainment, merchandise, and FOOD—really, really good food.

I loved everything about him—from his [...]

Makeup Artist Has Facial at Resort Spa

A couple of weeks ago, I ventured out and got a pedicure at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa. I like to think of it as a MANicure pedicure. It wouldn’t have been very nice of me to go to the spa and leave my wife at home—especially because my wife is an incredible make up [...]

A MANicure Pedicure: Why Men Should Go to the Spa

By | 2018-09-14T17:24:47+00:00 September 14th, 2018|Trip Planning|0 Comments
