Gatlinburg is kinda like Solvang. It feels somewhat historic, but mostly it’s touristy shops. It’s also known for all the moonshine distilleries. And these distilleries offer tastings like no other. You walk in, and there are multiple bars you could drink from, for free. Usually there are lines of people waiting to get their chance to drink from the communion cup of all the different flavors. There’s Hawaiian punch, maple, cinnamon, bailey’s, margarita… and a bunch I don’t remember. At each place they’ll give you about 10 different flavors. So that little communion cup will add up pretty quickly. We caught some moonshine and music at the Smoky Mountain distillery. Also there’s confederate flags everywhere… beanies, T-shirts… they really love that flag… because you know, heritage. I don’t wanna get too political, so I’ll leave it at that. But… this is definitely the south.
