Your “Country Cuzin”, one of the Hatfields or McCoys, will escort the coach into the Smoky Mountains and regale you with family anecdotes, history, mountain lore and, if you’re lucky, moonshine still locations. The tour also includes a stop at the Moonshine Distillery with a sample tasting of the Smoky’s best White Lightning!

This new replica of a prison and crime museum contains five unique galleries spread over two floors and covers the entire criminal and penal system. Free time will also be given to explore The Island, a collection of shops and restaurants in Pigeon Forge. We later visit the Titanic Exhibit, letting you experience what is was like to walk the hallways, parlors, cabins and grand staircase of the Titanic. Dinner and entertainment this evening will be at the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show, where you are invited to a special reunion of the most famous family feud in history. (B, D)
Day 4: Visit Dollywood, the “entertainment capital of the Smokies.” The combination of country music shows, delicious country cooking, family rides and mountain craftsmen will make our day a special one. This evening we attend Dolly Parton’s Stampede for an included dinner and entertainment. Seated in an arena-style theatre, we enjoy a full-course feast and watch riders perform daring feats, trick riding and competitions. (B, D)
