Kids in Memphis and Gatlinburg

We will be driving from Texas and looking to stay in Memphis and Gatlinburg? Kids will be 6,7,and 8. Last week of July and first two weeks of August. Looking for suggestions on things to do, places to stay, places to eat, fun and unusual experiences. Shows etc. MY HUSBAND WANTS THIS TO BE A TOTAL KID TRIP.

We are heading from Texas to Williamsburg Virginia and stopping along the way. I want to have the days fully planned before leaving.

Can't help with Memphis. Gatlinburg and the surrounding area will offer tons of stuff to do! WAY TOO MUCH to list! Definitely plan on taking in the Great Smoky Mountains. All FREE. So much to see. Cades Cove is beautiful and can be very educational. There is the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg that is wonderful but will cost a bit. Nearby in Pigeon Forge you will find all kinds of places to play mini golf, go karts, shop, etc. There is just too many things to list. Can you be more specific about your arrival time and how many days to stay. That would help in planning. I take it you have never been in this area before???

We love this guide for quirky and odd things to see along the way. You can view in map form that will show things along the way for each state. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/

Be sure to stop by the ministers tree house near Crossville. The kids will love it. Don't worry about the no trespassing signs as long a the gate is open. The signs are for the adjacent property. Just be sure to keep an eye on the kids as there are some dangers with this work in progress. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/13746
