I now know our anniversary getaway destination: Pigeon Forge, TN! Although I enjoy the beach, my husband knows that the mountains are my favorite.

Raised in Arkansas, my family loved to get away to Eureka Springs, in the Ozark Mountains. Since we’ve lived in Georgia, the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area (the towns are only separated by about 5 miles) and the Great Smoky Mountains are our favorite in this part of the world. It takes us about 4 hours to drive here.

One of my requests on the trip was to eat at Cracker Barrel, which I love but seem to only visit while traveling. If there’s one thing better than Cracker Barrel, it’s a Cracker Barrel adjacent to a Krispy Kreme, and that’s where we went for supper last night.


One of our most exciting new discoveries last night was the Titanic Museum, which opened this year. Being a Titanic buff, that was my special request for today’s adventures. We spent nearly 3 hours there. It contains many historical artifacts and honors the memory of those involved in the tragedy.

Tonight’s plans are undecided, but for the moment we’re grabbing some sweet tea, fries, and free wi-fi at McDonald’s, the only internet access we’ve found.
