The day we arrived, we had a late lunch at the Pottery House Cafe & Grill- one of my favorite restaurants in the Smokies. The food is amazing, plus they serve it on their own handmade pottery. Mom and I dream (or maybe it's just me) of opening our own little cafe or bistro with fresh, healthy cuisine served on my pottery. Look for NS Pottery Bistro opening in the near future ;)
The Pancake Pantry in Gatlinburg has 24 varieties of pancakes and crepes on the menu!
We hiked up the mountains to Rainbow Falls one day- almost 5.5 miles round trip. Let's just say going down was a lot easier then going up, but it was gorgeous! We even saw a black bear, thankfully while we were in the car. I may or may not have thought I saw one while we were hiking... turned out it was a deer :) My legs were shaking after that.
Have you ever been to the Smokies?
