camcorder on the tour you would see evidence of  some type of paranormal event. The reason they can say this is because they have done the research to back up the tour, they know the area history and the tragic events that have occurred that might cause a spirit to be trapped in our realm. Because of this you will find that the tour guide doesn’t have a need to wear a costume or put on a spooky voice while telling their tales. The facts back up the haunts and when you trace the facts it is inevitable that you will come across one or two paranormal events, it’s just as simple as that.

The tour takes approximately 90 minutes and anyone is welcome to join, strollers and wheelchairs are often seen on the tours. The guide leads each tour at a leisurely pace through the different areas of downtown Gatlinburg, and tells the tragic tales and events

that have taken place at each documented haunt. They encourage the use of digital and video cameras along the way so that you can capture and share the experience with friends and family. Each tour has around ten stories, half of the stories are history and the other half will consist of tall tales and legends.

The tour leads you to the Gatlinburg White Oaks Flat Cemetery which has been named in the National Historic Registry. There you will be able to capture many images of orbs, there also have been sightings of a white apparition and even a dark apparition. I can tell you from past experience that you can not walk away from the cemetery in the evening without at least one hair raising experience. Many guests of the tour have captured images of orbs and EVP recordings of voices all along the tour, they have often shared these experiences on the Ghost Haunt and Tours of Gatlinburg Facebook

All of the display’s at the exhibit are of either real people, animals, or objects, no matter how impossible they seem. The wonderful thing about Ripley’s is that everything has an explanation of what exactly it is, where it came from, and why it’s so freaky. No one can possibly explain what sits beyond the entrance of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, not because it’s not really, its real alright. But one can not fathom the insanity that it truly has to offer, you just have to experience the shock yourself!

The fun doesn’t end there though! Gatlinburg has plenty of Ripley sights to see! For every age, and taste! There is the Ripley Aquarium, Ripley’s Mirror Maze, Ripley’s Super Fun Zone, Ripley’s  Mini Golf’s, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, and more!

Hollywood Star Cars – Gatlinburg TN Favorite

Hollywood Star Cars, a very interesting peak into how Hollywood Stars live and the cars used in movies or on TV

Hollywood Star Cars, a very interesting peak into how Hollywood Stars live and the cars used in movies or on TV

If you have ever dreamed of owning your own spy car, or sitting in the same seat that maybe someone like Elvis then you really need to make a visit to Hollywood Star Cars in Gatlinburg, TN. The first time I ever had the pleasure of touring this multi floor museum I was in awe of all the different realms of stardom the collection they have covers. Right as you first walk in you can’t help but be blown away by the Batmobile, not just any old bat car; but the original Batmobile. Herbie the Bug is also there and he even has blinking headlights just like on the show!

You can touch the cars and have your picture made with them, you can even sit inside some of them! The cars range from the Munster’s Dragula, The Beverly Hillbillies Truck (which we found to be very apopro considering the origins of the show), to the Bond BMW that is equipped with every gadget that any normal BMW would not typically come standard with such as heat seeking missiles in just case the random evil guy pulls out in front of you.

It may seem a little kitschy at first, however you can’t fight the star power of all the cars they have for your to explore. They all have awesome history and we won’t ruin the tour by telling you about each individual car that is inside, lets just say that you won’t be disappointed by what you find at Hollywood Star Cars in Gatlinburg and there will definitely be a car for every persons taste in your group. From small child to elderly adult, everyone will enjoy the tour and leave your groups both large and small with plenty of memorable photo ops that will create lasting memories of your trip to Gatlinburg.

The Fudgery of Gatlinburg Tennessee

Some days it’s hard to ignore that little voice inside of you begging you to cheat on your diet and soothe that sweet tooth, and what better way to do so than with fudge. Along the busy strip of Gatlinburg is a small quant store filled with all of the sweet treats that children and adults alike dream of. From their specialty fudges to their assortment of candy apples, they even have ice cream and smoothies, but even that isn’t what makes this shop unique. The Fudgery of Gatlinburg not only offers the best tasting fudge in town but they make it the way fudge should be made, old-fashioned, fresh, and with charm.

 

There are 19 different flavors of fudge at the Fudgery, in Gatlinburg TN.

When you walk into the Fudgery you are offered a free sample of any of their incredible fudges, which can be a difficult decision between over a dozen different fudges from Extraordinary Chocolate, to Maple Nut, even Cookies ‘N’ Cream. After you have entertained your taste buds, you are in for a show!

The candy makers at the Gatlinburg Fudgery put on a one of a kind Fudge show just for you! As they make a fresh batch of fudge on the marble slabs just as it has been done since 1979, the candy maker announces the fudge show by ringing a bell and gathering the audience. You can then watch as the  candy maker put on a show by singing songs about fudge and performing the famous “chocolate rainbow” by smacking the fudge with the paddle used to turn it and then pulling it up quickly. Watching the fudge be made right before your eyes is exciting, but not as exciting as tasting it! The Fudgery’s fudge taste so incredible it will definitely hit the spot!

Not only does The Fudgery have fantastic quality, and great service, but it has great deals too! Each of the Fudgery’s half pound slices is only $7.99 but that not even the best! If you buy three slices you get the fourth free, four slices and you get two free slices, and for all those with that un-controlable sweet tooth purchasing ten slices gets you a free candy maker! Now that’s a deal!

The Fudgery of Gatlinburg is located on the main strip in downtown Gatlinburg right by the entrance to the village and beside Totes. The best way to find your way to the fudgery is just to listen for the sound of candy maker voices offering “fresh fudge, free samples!”.

24th Annual News Years Eve Fireworks in Gatlinburg, TN.

The fireworks at the Spaceneedle in Gatlinburg TN

The fireworks at the Spaceneedle in Gatlinburg TN will be set off around 11pm and will go on until the ball drops at midnight.

If you are planning to be in Gatlinburg on New Years Eve then be prepared for lots of excitement, good food, and tons of fireworks! The best place you could be at our opinion, is on one of the roof top buildings where you will find tables and chairs. Red Rocket, Dicks, Loco Burro, or  Mellow Mushroom are all excellent choices to find seats just before 11pm which is when the excitement will truly begin.

You may even want to plan on placing a chair along the edges of the sidewalk early in the morning, and some go as far as places these chairs there the evening before because it is that hard to find a seat along the road. The fireworks will be set off at the Space Needle where the ball will also drop at midnight.

There will be live entertainment all over town throughout the evening and many places will also be serving food and alcohol, so you may want to choose wisely where you decide to spend the evening. We have attended more that one event at the Ripley’s Aquarium New Years Event and it was outstanding. They had live music, food, drinks, games throughout the evening and even a place to take the kids for their own private entertainment while the adults can mingle all through the Aquarium.

We can’t stress enough how important it is to drive safely on this holiday night, there are several taxi services in the area that can take you to your destination so please be a safe and responsible driver. We hope you have an excellent evening and can avoid the traffic as much as possible.
