Thinking of taking an early summer trip to Gatlinburg area with dd's (12 and 10), and was wanting some opinions. I haven't been to that area since I was about 14 yrs old, so not sure what the area offers now. Planning on staying in a cabin, which on average seem to run about $200/night. I'm thinking maybe 5 nights/6 days? We'd be driving, and it would take about 8 hrs each way... most of the first day and last day would be spent driving, so we'd have 4 full days there. Does that seem like a good amount of time without it being too short/too long? I don't want to spend a ton on this trip.. was just wanting to get away for a little while, but ultimately saving for a cruise in summer of 2014. Anything that is a must-see down in that area? I'm not looking to spend much beyond what the cabin and food will cost us, so would love to get some feedback on free/very cheap things to see. We're nature lovers, so know that we'd like to do some hiking.. maybe go see Cades Cove, etc. I do remember there being some cement sledding that I remember doing.. is that still available? Thinking dd's would love that. Any other ideas? Thanks!
