I am spending a few days in Oakridge, Tennessee for Work training, and our group decided to take a quick trip to Gatlinburg. 1.5 hours on the back roads and we were there – an explosion of all tourist trap style shopping, drinking, eating, and things to do you can squeeze into a small area. We walked around downtown, which is right around the corner from DollyWood. We stopped in the Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine store and for $5, you get to sample 13 mini shots of liquor of every kind and a $5 coupon for anything over $5 in the store. I bought my husband a T-Shirt our group pooled our money and bought a fifth of our favorite Moonshine – Caramel Apple Pie. We shared our fifth with a few fellow students in the hotel lobby after class, then ate at Calhoun’s on the Water in Oakridge. A delicious meal at a beautiful location for a fair price. Love Gatlinburg!
