Another Exciting IVAC & Travel Connections Fall Adventure!

Our adventure begins with two days in ASHEVILLE, NC. Of course, we’ll tour and explore “America’s largest home,” the Biltmore Estate and Gardens, but Asheville is much more! We’ll tour this historic city, take a City Brews Tour, enjoy historical tours as well as a walking ghost tour, and Oconaluftee Indian village in nearby Cherokee, NC.

Then it’s off to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville! Enjoy The GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK GUIDED TOUR with epic views, photo ops galore, and wildlife! Then we enjoy THE LIFE OF DOLLY PARTON TOUR, with her former neighbor as our guide! (And yes, of course we’ll visit DOLLYWOOD!) Visit ANAKEESTA MOUNTAIN PARK, with incredible views, wineries, relaxing, shopping and more—on top of a mountain! Eat, shop and play at THE ISLAND AT PIGEON FORGE. And let the entertainment begin with three evening shows: COUNTRY TONIGHT, PAULA DEEN’S LUMBERJACK FEUD, and DOLLY PARTON’S PIRATE VOYAGE! Great dining—as always, with good old southern cooking—and even a walk across the GATLINBURG SKYBRIDGE!

After four nights in Gatlinburg, we return to Asheville for a final night before we fly home, and discover the 1920’s Art Deco historical tour, and a final country dinner at MOOSE CAFÉ!
