We are traveling to Gatlinburg in early July- any special suggestions/hints for a family with 12 and 14 year old sons?
Our older son has Asperger's, and I always have to have everything planned before we go because he doesn't do spontaneous. DH has travel anxiety, so I have to have maps, menus, hours of operation, etc. all available for easy access. Lots of work, but it makes for a much more enjoyable trip. :)
We are in the planning phase, and we have some ideas of what we want to do.
-Dollywood & Splash Mountain (worth the cost? How much time?)
-White Water Rafting (Company?)
-Hiking in Smoky Mountain Natl. Park (Best easy trail?)
-Clingman's Dome vs. Cades Cove?
-Best Family Friendly Restaurants?
Any information you could contribute would be very helpful! Tripadvisor contributors are always the most reliable. :)
