You know I love the Smoky Mountains! I think I have blogged about the East Tennessee area at least a dozen times. In 2012 I was fortunate enough to travel to Pigeon Forge two separate times and visit one of Pigeon Forge’s newer attractions: Titanic Museum Attraction. One thing I love about the area is that there are so many reasons to return to the Smoky Mountain region for years to come. I personally I visited the area 10 times & I have yet to grow tired of the area. Titanic Museum & Attraction is a perfect example of why travelers always return: Reinvention! Spring break is almost here so for all the holiday travelers Titanic Museum & Attraction has geared up for several months ful of new events and a new gallery for 2013.
New for 2013 is the Children of the Titanic, a new year long gallery opened to the public. Visitors can discover the 133 Children’s Stories of Titanic. It is the First and Only World Tribute to Titanic’s Littlest Heroes. Although Titanic sailed with 2,208 guests, 133 of them were children. Now you can learn more about what they felt, heard and saw during the first moments they arrived on board to those crucial moments before and during the sinking of the Titanic. As a mother, prepare yourself to weep for those that did not survive, but the inspirational stories of those that did will move you.

The First and Only World Tribute to Titanic’s Littlest Heroes
The RMS Titanic sailed with 2,208 people on board – 133 of them were children. These were Titanic’s littlest heroes. What they saw, heard and felt from the moment they boarded the ship has been documented and visualized for the first time anywhere by the Titanic Museum Attractions in Branson, Missouri and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This year-long, exclusive exhibit is a celebration of The Children of Titanic whose bravery, innocence and faith can be an inspiration to us all.

I wish I could squeeze in a few days in the beautiful Smoky Mountain area this March or April but I have several trips planned in the next few months. I will be visiting the Smoky Mountain area again this Thanksgiving 2013. I can’t wait until Trip #11!! I’m starting to plan my trip out now. Have any ideas for me? i’m always looking for new suggestions and locations to stay at.
