Past experiences include hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, visiting CNN and Coca-Cola in Atlanta, attending the Tennessee Valley Fair and Livestock Show, going to Six Flags amusement park, shopping at the local outlet malls in Pigeon Forge, visiting a local dairy, and attending a college football tailgate party and game!
