6 Things To Do In The Smoky Mountains To Make Your Trip That Much Better
Ally Mishell Smith

My family and I have been traveling to the Smoky Mountains my entire life, almost 20 years. My parents have been going there even longer than that. Over the years, we've found our favorite things to do and see while we're there, so rather than keeping all these secrets to myself, I thought that I would share them with you, so you can enjoy your trip to one of the best places on Earth.

1. The Villiage

There's nothing better than walking through the village, hearing the fountain run, with the smell of donuts filling the air, while walking in and out of little knick-knack stores. It feels just like home.

2. Pancake Pantry

I promise you won't find any better pancakes in the land. You may have to wait an hour but I promise it will be 100% worth it.

3. Downtown Gatlinburg

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this place is like home and there's nothing better than the smell of corndogs and moonshine.

4. The Christmas Place

If you're like me, you wish every day could be Christmas. At The Christmas Place, every day is just that. It's literally 365 days of just Christmas. You could honestly spend 2 hours there and never get bored.

5. Fannie Farkle's

Eat a foot-long corn dog while playing endless games of ski-ball. It's ok to be a kid at Fannie's.

6. Take the scenic route.

I promise you'll be thankful. There's nothing better than being in the mountains.

7. Love your family in the best place on Earth.

The laughs are harder, and the love grows stronger.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
