Dollywood! This is such an amazing park and worth a family visit.

Amber Davis, Publicist for Dollywood, was our special guest on Episode 40.

We started out the show talking about a small sliver of Dolly Parton's accomplishments. She is truly an incredible singer, songwriter, entertainer, businesswoman, and humanitarian.

Bringing it back to the park. Amber mentioned the eight coasters at Dollywood. Wild Eagle is an awesome coaster and the only winged coaster in the US. Rob mentioned visiting in the 90's and then again in the last couple of years and just how different the park is now with so many thrill rides. The Cinnamon Bread is something you don't want to miss and is produced in the working Grist Mill. Amber talked about Dolly's influence on the park and it is considerable.

Splash Country is the water park at Dollywood. The exciting rides are aided by the natural beauty of the area and surprises are around every turn.

The Dreammore resort is a fantastic addition to Dollywood and offers guests a trolly that takes you to the gates of Dollywood. The food is excellent, from the onsite restaurants to late-night pizza, this resort has a little bit of everything. Including family suites with bunch beds for the kids.

Amber also talked about the different seasons of the park and all the beauty in each. This is one theme park you won't want to miss.

    Traci's been shaking up the Dawson County School System for four years now, injecting it with her unique brand of energy and enthusiasm. When she's not molding young minds, you'll find her co-conspiring with her sister at Seasonal Events and Design—because who doesn't love a good party?

    She's a self-proclaimed beach aficionado, never meeting a sandy shore she didn't instantly click with. And let's not forget her partner-in-crime for the past eighteen years, Rob, who's been keeping up with her antics and their three beautiful troublemakers—Ruthie, Chase, and Nash. Together, they're a whirlwind of chaos, laughter, and love.
