We ate breakfasts in the cabin and dinners and ate out for lunches.
The Red Rooster had the BEST breakfasts!! Mad Dog Creamery had the most incredible ice cream!!One thing we had a hard time accomodating was planning our eating times. Leaving enough time on the trails to get back to the car and drive through town, then choose a restaurant and wait for the food -- we were STARVING most of the time. There was almost no place to park in Gatlinburg (for free) and everyone just walked the parkway. That didn't work so well for us. We wanted to save our energy for hiking...not getting from our car and back when we wanted to stop somewhere.
1.3 mile hike up a paved path to Laurel Falls.
