Dollywood in a Wheelchair

By | 2020-09-21T17:06:10+00:00 September 21st, 2020|Trip Planning|0 Comments

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: What did the theme park say to the amusement park? What’s THEME-atter with you?!?!? Okay, so maybe that was a pretty poor attempt at a ‘dad joke’ but one that may be relevant to our topic for this blog—theme park vs. amusement park. I never considered [...]
