Buddy Bear – Our own cub reporter bringing Summer fun your way!

Our favorite little cub is kicking off Summer 2014 in a big way as he eats, sleeps, and plays his way through Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains! We hope you’ll join him on his journey so you can learn more about all the great things in our neck of the woods so you and your family will have a great summer vacation!

Buddy’s first adventure begins with a trip to Pigeon Forge’s newest hot spot The Island (www.islandinpigeonforge.com) where you’ll find all kinds of excitement to entertain your family. While you’re there be sure to check out Thunder Dome, the only Bungy Dome in the area. It’s a giant aluminum dome 32 ft. high with four trampoline based bungy jumps. There is a minimum weight requirement of 20 lbs. to enjoy Thunder Dome, so Buddy had visited our friends at nearby Poynor’s Pommes Frites to fill up before he made the big leap!

Poynor’s Pommes Frites specialty is their Original Belgium Fries which are thick, hand-cut potatoes that are first soaked in a secret solution (Buddy knows but he ain’t sayin’) then flash fried. The fries are then chilled for a specific time period and fried again when ordered to create a one-of-a-kind crispy exterior and fluffy interior that is oh so good! Sprinkled with a little kosher salt and served with one of their sauces of your choice (over 20 to choose from). Poynor’s is the area’s only authentic German restaurant (www.poynors.com).

After this big day of fun Buddy Bear tucked himself in at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott to rest and get ready for another great day in our mountain playground. Located at 120 Christmas Tree Lane in Pigeon Forge, SpringHill Suites offers stylish and spacious studio suites along with indoor and outdoor pools, a waterslide and an outdoor hot tub. Buddy Bear really liked their hot breakfast buffet the next day to get him going for more of his adventures.
