Day 65 – East Tennessee Border Tour Part 2

Day 65 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

OK, after my detour to Knoxville last night, I ended up returning to Sieverville, not far from the continuation of my scenic drive along the East Tennessee Border.  What an interesting place!  Sieverville is just west of Gatlinburg. In between Sieverville and Gatlinburg is Pigeon Forge.  I felt like I was in a mini Vegas except instead of walking down the Strip past hotels and casinos, I drove down Dolly Parton Parkway past motels and attractions including magic, theater, miniature golf, speed racing, the Titanic Museum, moving seat cinema, laser tag, and more!  Well, really Dolly Parton Parkway was a few miles away, but it sounded better to have all the entertainment lining the street with her name.  No worries, I stopped by Dollywood too…though it was closed.
