I'm here in Asheville for Thanksgiving, and we went over on Friday to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to see Dollywood.  I honestly thought Dollywood would be kind of cheesy, but given Ms. Parton's business acumen, I should have known better. Aside from some very heavy handed religious themes in some of the shows, Dollywood is a very well done theme park, and the shows that I saw all had excellent (albeit low budget) sound and lighting.  (Ample cheesiness can be found throughout Pigeon Forge and Galtinburg, however, see all my photos here).


More on my time in Tennesee here, covering my visit to Gatlinburg and the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies..
