Sitting around on vacation is great, but it’s not for everyone!

If you want to experience what countries have to offer, try taking local excursions!
Make some memories by taking in unique local experiences.


Gaylord’s is awesome, very nice.  The only change would to have had the balcony that most rooms had in the Cascades.  If a client likes “white noise” that area would be perfect as you heard the water falls, we’re not huge fans of white noise, but was fine.  You can walk to a very friendly honky tonk, Nashville Palace, we thought the quality of the performers was great.  
The CMA’s were going on, we are not fans of huge crowds, so would’ve maybe gone a different weekend. 
All in all we definitely liked Nashville better than Gatlinburg, which is like the Dells on steroids.  Very hard to find healthier food options. Red Oak Bistro, which is a little drive was the best food.  Cades Cove’s traffic was ridiculous (worse than the Yellowstone circle), we’d suggest doing the Historic Nature Trail to Cherokee Orchard Trail/Roaring Fork Rd and doing the Rainbow Falls hike. Clingman’s Dome is the best vantage point, it’s a steep one mile walk, great views.  Anakeesta was really done well, probably the best chair lift/chondola ride, picturesque, fun (overpriced) Alpine slide/coaster. Beautiful gardens, etc.
The Hampton Inn was quiet and nice that it was a little ways from the crowds, disappointed that that you couldn’t hike from there, the name’s misleading. The breakfast is almost all processed, crappy foods, would’ve preferred paying less and getting our own food.
So to recap what we like…Rooms with balconies when available, windows that open, no room fresheners, quiet, healthy food options/craft beer, being able to walk to places when possible.

Really enjoy working with you Karen!  
Thank you,


All went well. Your advice and planning were excellent. The wedding was beautiful. Almost storybook.
