Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN

Before the trip, which is my first visit to a National Park in US, I always thought we were going to have a trip in North Carolina. It turned out that I was completely wrong — the Great Smoky Mountain sits on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, and we actually drove for almost five hours from Charlotte to Gatlinburg, a resort city in Tennessee with the nickname “gateway to the Great Smoky Mountain”.  The night was falling when we arrived there, but Gatlinburg surely surprised us. With all kinds of candy stores, chocolate factories, restaurants, cinema and theaters along the parkway as well as all the bright lights and logos shining,  this lively small town looked just like a paradise for kids, families and all the visitors.
