>>What are some good places to eat and go or see?
Wendy's and KFC. Pack up extra jorts for the hikes. The only decent food in that area is down in Maggie Valley, NC. You have to cross the mountains south to Cherokee (which is superior to Gatlinburg by infiniity) and then head east about 20 miles to Waynesville. There are a couple of okay bbq restaurants and steak houses, but Ingles grocery store stocks a large assortment of beer and ahi and sashimi grade tuna. If you know how to cook, you can purchase good things to eat there. :17:
