Done Florida....now where else can we go?

We are a family from the UK that includes teenagers and we have now been to Florida 4 times, done the ‘Disney/Universal/Sea World’ thing and loved every minute of it.

This year we want to go somewhere else in the USA that can offer the same thing; i.e. good theme parks (we love roller coasters – Six Flags is somewhere we like the look of), water parks with scary slides, plenty of good places to eat and plenty of sunshine.

Just like our visit to Florida we would like to stay in a condo and hire a car.

We are considering Anaheim in California but it seems to be dominated by the ‘Disney thing’ (see above)

Has anyone got any other ideas as to a town or area that would suit us?

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in Tennessee should be great for you. There is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and in PF there is Dollywood which is an amusement park. PF is loaded with fun things for teens (go carts and such). Also Gatlinburg has a lot to offer for you. You can do some google searches on smoky websites and you will see all kinds of attractions and such. Of course, you will get all kinds of info on here! Hope that helps....

I should add that Dollywood also has a waterpark!

Also, if you like to look of Six Flags, Atlanta is only a few hours away from Gatlinburg, PF and the Smoky Mountains. It would probably be worth taking a few days out of the vacation for the Atlanta/Chattanooga area.
