Divine Destinations for the Holidays

Where was your favorite holiday vacation? Or what is your dream holiday trip? I'd love to hear.

Mine was a road trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with my daughter 2 years ago. We started seeing snow in Georgia in December (very rare), but my daughter had been praying for snow. As you can see her prayers were answered. It was truly a winter wonderland – Tennessee and North Carolina were blanketed. Other than the 2 hour detour (the Blue Ridge Pkwy. was closed at dusk due to snow and ice) we had a magical white Christmas vacation. There were snowmen to be made and lots of hot chocolate to sip by the roaring fire in our mountain top suite.












We stayed at Tree Tops Resort in Gatlinburg, Tennessee as a trade out for our vacation club membership, but they also rent to non-vacation club members on a 4 night or weekly basis. Having the added room and almost always a full kitchen is a huge bonus if you ask me. Certainly worth checking out if you've never tried it before. If you prefer being catered to daily and dinning out for every meal there are plenty of hotels. The Great Smoky Mountains are a wonderful place to spend your vacation.
