Cooler Weather Marks the End of Summer
Cooler weather is just around the corner! It’s the time of year when we start seeing milder temperatures all across the map, and after this summer we all deserve a break from the sweltering heat. There are several different destinations for some fall weather excitement, and we’ve picked a few of our favorites to give you a starting idea for your next trip.
Enjoy some outdoor excitement as well as some indoor entertainment at Dollywood Theme Park Tennessee located in Pigeon Forge. Catch some thrills on the Wild Eagle roller coaster, the newest addition to Dollywood’s already remarkable lineup of rides. On this unique coaster, riders will feel as if they’re flying when they reach heights as tall as 21 stories above the park. If you want to sit and relax for a while, take time to see one of the numerous shows offered at Dollywood. See performances from the award-winning southern gospel quartet, Kingdom Heirs, or witness a show all about bubbles, The Gazillion Bubbles Show. And, of course, you can’t forget about the wide variety of restaurants Dollywood Theme Park Tennessee has to offer.
From now until around the end of October, take pleasure in seeing some breathtaking views on the All American Tour in the Niagara Falls area.
