Gatlinburg Day 4…Walking around downtown + small Hike

We spent the morning by sleeping in again today.  We made biscuits and had apple butter with them.  Yum.  I did a little work this morning before we made our way out on the town. 


Let me just begin by telling you that if you are a person who are interested in any of the following, this is the place for you!:

Air Soft Gun Shops(crazy amount of these)

Old Time Photos

Golf…miniature…play in the dark, Ripley's haunted, circus, the list goes on…

Fudge Shops

Airbrush T-Shirt Shops

There are MULTIPLE stores of each of these!  It is crazy!

The two places on our list of “must see’s” today included the Pepper Palace, which had TONS of salsas, hot sauce and so much more!  Fun place to browse through.  Even picked out some salsa to take home!  We LOVE salsa!


The next place was on Adam’s list, if you can only imagine what that place was:


The first legal Moonshine Distillery in TN!  It was very fun to see too….of course he had to do the free taste testing!

The commercial and the brochures made this place look a lot bigger than it really was, but it was still very neat to see.

We ate lunch at Legends .  IMG_0346 Sat next to a fire place, enjoyed lunch. 

Found this silly thing outside the restaurant….of course I had to twist his arm:) He was mortified excited about this photo opportunity as you can probably tell.


In one of the outdoor shops downtown, we saw this shirt and just HAD to get a picture of it!  Funny!


After walking around downtown, Adam decided that we should fit in a short hike to Rainbow Falls.  Our hike was cut a little short due to daylight.  Of course we had to play a little with the new camera!

Now enjoying the evening next to the fire, getting ready to enjoy a dinner at “The Best Italian in Gatlinburg”.  Will see how it goes!

Tomorrow we will be making it a day of hiking!  We will be going to Cades Cove, then come back into Gatlinburg to finish the day off with one more “falls” hike. 

Until then.
