We recently had the privilege to check out the gorgeous Dollywood theme park, in the mountains of Tennessee, and the NEW Wildwood Grove.  While Dolly herself was there! In all of our Smokey Mountains travels, we had never explored Dollywood before.  And it’s now one of those family attractions at the top of our list for our future family vacations.

“There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this.” 

Nothing has bonded us and opened up our eyes to the gorgeous places around us more than travel. At first, it started as something just for fun, but it’s become so much more than that… it’s a way to reconnect and fill our tanks with incredible memories.

Our most recent beautiful discovery was Dollywood in Tennessee; and the grand opening of an entirely new section of the park called Wildwood Grove. Needless to say, it completely exceeded our expectations!!! Not to mention it’s a theme park in the most beautiful of settings. Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. I’m telling you, the park was gorgeous.

For this trip, we brought along my parents. As three generations enjoyed the park together, I was amazed by how much there was to do for every age group and stage of life.  Seriously, SO many activities! From the Dollywood Express train to live shows to rollercoasters like the Lightning Rod. Oh, and AMAZING food too!  I mean, where else can you find a restaurant named Ham N Beans in a theme park?? Plus, Dollywood is understandably famous for its cinnamon bread and 25-lb. apple pie!

Just talking about this right now has me ready to go back for that sweet, southern Dolly charm.

I’m LOVING, and maybe even a little bit OBSESSED with, this video with Southern Living Magazine and Dollywood. That’s all about our family trip to Dollywood and the new Wildwood Grove!!
