my husband and i are coming to wears valley in early november and we are considering taking the tuckasegee railway 1st class excursion tour from bryson city. is this something you would recommend? also, do you recommend taking a riverboat excursion in the pigeon forge/gatlinburg area? we are looking for something different to do than our usual trips to the smokies. we have done all the shopping, cades cove, the most advertised attractions...we love the area but just want something different this time!
