Starting to get colder isnt it? Today I have a post from over the summer if it helps anyone to think of warmer days.
Over the summer, Katie and I thought it would be neat for me to share some pictures from my vacation, and Ive finally got them all together to share with you... Yay!
We went away the first week of August, leaving left our home in South Central PA for a Sunday-Sunday vacation in Gatlinburg TN. Our destination was the Westgate Resort and Spa there, a lovely place to stay. It rained a bit during the week but I still got thousands and thousands of awesome pictures.
We stayed in the 511 building which is pretty much at the top of the mountain and it takes a while to get past all the other buildings. At the bottom of the resort is a waterpark and a hotel-like building, then you have like 52 200 buildings, then you have the 300s road, 400 units, a half a dozen 500 units, and then large buildings of the 4000s, 5000's and they are soon going to be putting up a 6000 building. There are 3 outdoor pools on site, miniature golf, and all sorts of things to do!

^Also you better believe it that we LOVE the shuttles. Much better than walking up the mountain, lol although my dad would go running in the mornings.
Right when you get into TN, there is a large guitar building and I was happy to get an image of it :)
Its actually a really easy drive there, pretty much just 500 miles down I-81 and then youre more or less there. Finally we found a bi-pass through Pigeon Forge so that was cool too, if you are familiar with the area and the traffic around all the attractions.
I am the sort of person who loves the mountains a lot so they were a great addition to the images
We got a huge, oversized lion stuffed animal the one day from the grocery store for $20. Another day we made Sharpie Mugs after searching forever for a Dollar Tree. Another day I just read books and chilled outside on my laptop.
Next year when we go back I hope to hike to some waterfalls or explore Cades Cove, but that might be more stuff that Katie could post about too since she is more in the area.
Have you ever been to Gatlinburg?
Are you a beach person or a mountain person?
