    We spent a morning at the caverns with our 6 and 8 year old. We all loved it. Our guide Caleb was especially entertaining, knowledgeable and funny. What an asset he is to your attraction. Both kids were engaged the whole time. Beautiful caverns!

    We took our grandkids and had a terrific time. Staff was friendly, the tube trip was a lot of fun and the facilities were clean. Highly recommend as a family outing.

    Unfortunately Donnie and Angie sold Next to Heaven and it never reopened with the new owner, but it is gone but not forgotten! We love those two!

    This is a small museum that tells a lot of history. It's not for little kids (nor does it pretend to be) but if you enjoy learning about an area you are visiting you can spend a LOT of time here. The displays are augmented with well done, easy to read information boards that detail the history of how the railroad was built by the logging company early in the days of Townsend and immigrants' harvesting and settling in the Great Smoky Mountains. I spent about 45 minutes there but had I not had somewhere else to be I could easily have spent twice that time reading all the information, looking at the displays, etc. Even if you just need to get out of the car and stretch for a bit, this is a good stop with lots of information.

    I come to Cades Cove Cellars several times a year. My favorite winery. I love the Rustic Cabin Red. The staff always makes me feel welcome and the shop is just wonderful.

    Drinks were perfect and not overpriced. Selection was excellent, with enough options for everyone. Folks working were as nice as can be, and answered all our questions with a smile. Overall vibe is pretty good. Great stop for a drink after a long day of hiking.

    We walked over this cool bridge after eating at The Abbey restaurant. It was short and sweet. Pretty view of the river. I recommend it as an after dinner exploration.

    A must for any day lily lover! The garden is so pretty and the barn is interesting as well. Even the short drive to get there is pretty! But the wonderful thing is you can walk a whole hillside/field of lilies and they will dig them up for you to purchase fresh from the field! They will even mail them home for you if you prefer!!

    Captain Dave is an amazing artist. He built us a fireplace mantle and cut a tree in half to cover up to beams. “Totally Beautiful”

    Must do for all nature and bear enthusiasts. We follow ABR on FB and was so excited to go to the visitor center to purchase items at their visitors center and learn more about these creatures. Love what they do for the bears.

    The trail is about 10 miles long. It crosses under the highway at least 3 different areas so you can easily get from one side to the other. One side is rather flat with a few hills. The other side has ups and downs and curves. It had very little traffic. The river is on one side of the trail so there are various things to look at as you are riding. This is a paved trail and well maintained.
