Our Family Field Trip to Gatlinburg, TN

One of our family’s favorite get-away spots is nestled in the heart of The Great Smoky Mountains: Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and just this past week, we ventured over for a day of fun together.

Gatlinburg, TN is a scenic, mountain town that offers activities for all ages – fun for the whole family for sure!

Our Family Field Trip to Gatlinburg, TN

We kicked off our day with breakfast on-the-go and a morning at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.

We spotted all kinds of different fish (and other animals!) that we have been reading about together this year.

Next, we decided it was time to grab some lunch, and No Way Jose’s Cantina did not disappoint. The fresh guacamole can’t be beat.

Following lunch, we ventured further into town to explore The Village Shops and enjoy donuts from The Donut Friar.

What a beautiful day! The weather was perfect, and the donuts were even better!

Next up, Gatlinburg’s Space Needle!

Love this view from the top that Daddy snapped with the camera! Gorgeous mountains and adorable smiles all around!

Our favorite stop was Make it Magic – where the boys picked out new magic tricks to add to their growing collection of illusions.
