Hi everyone! I am planning our first trip to Pigeon Forge for this summer. We'll likely be going in July. It will be my husband and I, our 2 girls (ages 11 and 14) and our 15 month old son. Although he's not walking yet (just taking 3 or 4 steps on his own) he'll be walking by July for sure, but still not good enough, imo, for us to be without a stroller. With that being said, will I have any problems going to the Parks to do some hiking with the older girls with him being in a stroller. I don't have a jogging stroller and I know those might be better for the terrain. Has anyone ever rented baby equipment while there? Also, suggestions for a cabin or location? Any other activites that anyone can recommend that we would all enjoy together would be great.
I really want to take the family and go on a picnic. Any suggestions as to a good location for that would be helpful. We also want to do horseback riding (without the baby of course). Since hubby has no interest in horseback riding, I'll take the girls and he'll hang with the baby. Then one day he's going to take the girls to do the zip lines. I think we'll also plan a trip to either Dollywood or the Dollwood water park. Both if finances allow. Also, would you recommend we stay in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge/Seiverville area? Sorry this is so long....so many questions!! Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can provide!
