My family and I visited Dollywood in March during the Festival of Nations. Unfortunately it snowed most of the day and the rides were shut down. We left after only a few hours due to the extreme cold. It is however a beautiful place. Very clean and well maintained. The staff is unbelievable. Every restaurant we stopped at, to eat, get a cup of coffee, or just warm up a few minutes, the people were so nice and hospitable! Despite the extreme cold we enjoyed ourselves and I wish we could have spend more time there.
