A Dreamy, but Safe Family Road Trip to Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Never have I received more Instagram DM’s than when we embarked on our recent family road trip to Tennessee for Thanksgiving break. And it wasn’t even a sponsored gig this time! I knew I had to write a blog post about it for you all who may be considering a similar escape to the mountains. We decided to go because our extended family members decided to do something different for the November holiday this year. We’re staying home for Winter Break, so I definitely wanted to find a fun (safe) change of scenery for our fall vaca. I’d like to think we succeeded, taking a memorable 12+ hour drive north to the Smoky Mountains. Here are my travel tips on how to take your family on a dreamy yet safe road trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in the fall!

It’s exhausting.

And if you’re a small business that works with kids? There are a TON of new safety factors that leadership has to consider now. Even just running my small group of “Mommy & Me” classes, I’ve had to consider everything from mandatory mask-wearing for mommies to social distancing sharing circles.
