after twenty years my wife and i returned to find that gatlinburg has turned into a commercial mess! lost is the service, the charm and most importantly its sole. period! i will never go back, and i will tell the thousands of people that i will come into contact with the same.
can we say catskill n.y. it too was really popular at one time.
if this was a product(meaning gatlinburg) it would be at its peak...nowhere, to go but down!
sorry gatlinburg you have seen you best days!
