Great place for a couples or family retreat. There is so much to do in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Seiverville area. We have to go back just to do everything we want to experience. We were there for five days. The two standout activities that everyone extremely enjoyed are the Ripley's 5D Theatre and The Soul of Motown show at The Grande Majestic Theater. Excellent fun and everyone kept talking about those two activities. My husband and I certainly want to go back to The Soul of Motown show. The food at the show was excellent as well. We went to a lot of restaurants and the two that stood out was Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co. and Mama's Farmhouse. The Ripley's golf courses are well maintained and the themes are cute with interactive characters throughout. Can't wait until our next trip to the area.
