For the last 4 years, my family (wife and 7 year old son) and I have traveled up to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Va for their Christmas Town display and down to Myrtle Beach for a couple of their shows in early December. It always helped with igniting that Christmas spirit and got us reved up for the holiday. Being stationed in eastern NC made them an easy trip and short flight. This summer we were transferred to east-central Mississippi and are now looking for a new fly-in Christmas tradition. We’re currently exploring the Pigeon Forge/Dollywood holiday events. We like the sound of potentially more seasonal temps, possibly some opportunity to get snow, and of course the mountains. Additionally, Gatlinburg appears to have an airport (GKT) that might work and there’s always McGhee-Tyson in Knoxville of which I’m very familiar with. Anyone familiar with Pigeon Forge/Dollywood during the holidays or flying into GKT? Any other Smokey Mountain recommendations for the holidays? Any other holiday must-sees within 300 miles or so of East Mississippi?
