Great Smoky Mountains, the Biltmore & Dolly's Tennessee
October 17 - 22, 2021 (6 Days)
There is such a variety of beauty and activities in this tour! The modern city Charlotte boasts Billy Graham’s home and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Vanderbilt’s opulent Biltmore Estate in Ashville is the largest privately-owned home in the nation. We feast our eyes and senses crossing the Smokies on our way to a great time in Gatlinburg and Chattanooga (Choo Choo)! – Jeanne Hutchins, SUN TOURS Cruise and Tour Coordinator
Included meals are denoted: Breakfast: B, Lunch: L, Dinner: D
We fly to Charlotte, have a guided tour of the city, and stay overnight.
DAY 2 B,D
Our morning begins with a visit to the Billy Graham Library. Designed to reflect Billy Graham’s journey from a humble farm boy to an international evangelist, the barn-shaped building is situated on 20 landscaped acres, only miles from where Billy Graham grew up in Charlotte, N.C. Afterward, we head to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Situated on five acres, this nearly 40,000-square-foot exhibition space honors NASCAR icons and creates an enduring tribute to the drivers, crew members, team owners, and others that have impacted the sport in the past, present, and future. This evening takes us to Ashville, where we lodge two nights.
DAY 3 B,L
The Biltmore Mansion, with over 250 rooms designed by the Vanderbilts, is America’s most impressive home. We tour the mansion, enjoy the gardens, and savor lunch on the estate. A tour of the historic vineyard gives us a taste of America’s most visited winery. (Samples, anyone?!) We have the choice of free time this afternoon or to continue enjoying the opulence of the Biltmore’s 8,000-acre estate.
DAY 4 B,L,D
Heading west, we stop at the Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This scenic drive is a relaxing and picturesque way to cross into Tennessee. In Gatlinburg, we take a ride on the cable car and are treated to breathtaking views over the 2-mile route. Two nights lodging in Pigeon Forge at the Dollywood DreamMore Resort.
DAY 5 B,D
At Dollywood we celebrate the best of life as we light up the Smokies with rides, slides, music, food and laughter - day and night. This evening, we’ll be treated to dinner and a show at Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Featuring music, comedy, live animals, and pyrotechnics, this family-friendly extravaganza is a must in Pigeon Forge!

After a tour of the Titanic Museum Attraction this morning, we make our way to the airport for our flight home.
