I love a good road trip! And I love keeping the kids entertained (at least part of the time…) without movies! Here are some free downloadable games for kids in the car!
Sevierville has the Tanger Outlets, which I love. But if I’m looking for gifts or unusual things, I love the Gatlinburg shops the best. Here are my 6 favorites: All Sauced Up.
