This year I planned to go to the Cherokee and gatlinburg area in October when the wife had a week off from school. We are still going then but with the 100 degree temperatures this weekend and 105 to 110 heat index I decided that some cool mountain air would be needed soon. The wife is teaching summer school to pick up some extra cash and her schedule allows for use to get away for a long weekend around July 24.
So I called the lady who i usually rent a cabin from and she had one available for that weekend. While I was talking to her she said that business and tourist have been down this year. Worst than last year.
So my question is how has this economy effected your travel and how busy have the places you been to been.
