Lowery Family Weekend Getaway!

A few days ago we went on a weekend getaway to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN. We had such a great time.... walking the streets of Gatlinburg and visiting Rowdy Bear Mountain, you can see our review for it HERE!! We stayed in Gatlinburg Town Square by Exploria Resorts... this is a great place to stay... clean, relaxing and big apartments to enjoy.  

  (Noah bought another stuffed animal. He loves getting them on every trip we take. lol! Aidan bought a walking stick for all of his hiking medallions he's collected from our park adventures!) 

The next day we visited Pigeon Forge.... riding go-carts, going to The Island and much more! Sometimes it's just nice to have a spontaneous getaway! 

Time to squeeze one more trip in before Homeschool begins in August! We are ready for another adventure! 

Rowdy Bear Mountain Review

Last weekend we visited The Rowdy Bear Mountain. It is home to two different thrill rides... the First Mountain Glider in the world and their Mountain Coaster! These attractions are open year round for the whole family to enjoy. 

Our family loved riding the mountain coaster... with speed up to 35 mph. It was amazing! It lives up to it's name as being Galtinburg's #1 Coaster. Our boys ages 12 and 11 both loved it so much we had to ride it again and again!!

The Rowdy Bear Coaster is gravity-propelled that winds through the woods of Rowdy Bear Mountain. You control your speed while seeing amazing views... the mountains are beautiful!  

We didn't get to experience the coaster at night but we heard many people talking about how amazing it is and how beautiful the lights are. We will definitely be trying it on our next trip to Gatlinburg! 

Make sure to visit Rowdy Bear Mountain when your in The Great Smoky Mountains. The atmosphere is very family friendly and you are guaranteed to have a great time!
