In our anxious times with omnipresent negativity abounding on multiple screens all the time, sometimes an escape to more simple pleasures is just what the doctor ordered.
For a holiday from reality this season, set your GPS for the purity of Dollywood, the 150-acre theme park set in Tennessee’s Smokey Mountains. The award-winning amusement park complex continues to delight travelers year after year (Dollywood was named a top three US theme park by USA Today in 2014 and 2017, and TripAdvisor recognized Dollywood as a top-20 worldwide theme park in 2015) and the vision keeps growing with the forthcoming Wildwood Grove, a massive expansion planned for 2019.
This Holiday season Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas will conjure up the Christmas spirit from Nov. 10, 2018- Jan. 5, 2019 with more than five million twinkling lights strewn throughout the park, a 50 ft. tall, fully-animated Christmas tree that boasts synchronized LED lights, new displays and the priceless feeling of celebrating the holidays in a small mountain mining town.
Book a room at the charming Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, a 2017 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, offering cozy accommodations and a number of bonus goodies for guests like Complimentary TimeSaver passes, free door-to-door transportation (plus you don’t have to pay for parking), early Saturday entry through an exclusive entry for guests.
