We are taking our 2 children on a road trip May 31st through the first week of June. Our kids have never seen the mountains or the ocean, so our first stop will be in PF, then we'll make a few stops as we travel through North Carolina until we reach the outer banks (in fact, our final stop will be tent camping on the beach at Cape Lookout, NC.) I am still in the beginning stages of planning our trip, as this is (gulp!) quite a bit to plan! I was thinking about staying in Pigeon Forge for two nights, then traveling into North Carolina to spend the night near Tweetsie RR, so that we would get an early start on our day at Tweetsie. But after reading positive comments about Dollywood here on the forum, I'm not sure if Tweetsie would be the best choice for the kids. I believe both would be fun for the kids, as they are 3 and 5 years old, but I need help deciding which park to take the children to so I can plan the logistics of our trip (ie, stay our third night near Tweetsie or plan for an extra night in PF to be able to visit Dollywood.) I do like the idea of visiting Dollywood at 3 PM, and getting in free the next day, as well as being able to take the trolley to Dolly to save on parking....Any suggestions? Has anyone visited both Dollywood and Tweetsie? TIA!
