Unto These Hills

I'd really like to take the whole family to this...it sounds pretty amazing. We have two 3 year-olds though and I'm wondering if this will work for them. How long is the show? Is there an area nearby to step out with them if they get restless? They did well with Dixie Stampede. What time does the show end, and how long is the drive from Gatlinburg?

The show is great. If they did good at the Dixie Stampede they should be fine here. The only thing that may be a factor is that the show is in the evening. I don't recall how long it last.

The drive from Gatlinburg to Cherokee is about an hour. It is an easy drive with plenty of great views. The drive back at night is not bad either. I drove it at about midnight one time. Lots of animals on the sides of the road.

If you make the trip over to see the drama take the kids to the Island park in the middle of Cherokee. It is about a block from the entrance to the drama. Let them swim, chase ducks and play. They will love it, my 2 grandsons do and best of all it is FREE

John144's advice is our experience.

We have seen Unto These Hills several times from our TreeTops base in Gatlinburg.

My opinion is the show goes a little late for 3 year olds. Also - the drive back though the mountains at night is something to think about. Lots of bear and deer on that road. Be cautious- the deer get hit a lot. I personally would not drive 441 at night unless I absolutely had to.

You do have to be cautious, but driving through the Park, at night, is not a big deal. You aren't real going fast enough for it to be dangerous, or at least you shouldn't be. I like to drive through, late at night, on purpose. Stopping to check out the stars at an overlook, or just seeing what critters you might encounter..
