This was a great way to break up a 4 hour car trip to Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. The visitor center is easy to get to and is free. Inside, there is a well-done movie explaining the history of the Gap that also describes the struggles that Daniel Boone's family faced coming through Kentucky. My kids (6,9, and 12) stayed interested through the entire 30 minute presentation. There is also a nice display area and a place for kids to try on pioneer costumes. A gift shop upstairs sells nice, hand-made local crafts.
The kids enjoyed stretching their legs on the huge grassy area at the visitor's center. The walk to the overlook was fun and the view was beautiful. The kids enjoyed standing in two states at one time.
