Hi, we are thinking of exchanging our time share week for the Westgate Smoky mountain resort at Gatlinburg in December 2010. Firstly, will the weather be ok for us at this time of year? Secondly, we have no idea of distances across Tennessee and would like to see as much of it as possible during a 2 week period. We would have to stay at least 6 or 7 nights at the resort as it is a time share week but it could either fall in the middle of the holiday or towards the end of it. I know this is a very open request but we are only at the early stages of planning. We are a married couple with no children and are not particularly fussed on kids either. We love walking along easy/moderate walking trails and would rather not be in big cities if possible as we love nature and wildlife (e.g. we much preferred Huntsville, Muskoka to Kingston when we visited Ontario in Canada). We love country and western music and nice food, although we are not fussed on dressing up for fine dinning. In terms of accommodation, we like fairly high standards and usually choose places with a bit of character rather than the big chains. I hope this gives a bit of an idea of us and I really look forward to your suggestions so that I can start my planning. Thanks in advance.
