  • Golf: A mountain treat in Gatlinburg, Tenn.

    My husband, Gene, and I went to Gatlinburg, Tenn., last week and we loved it.
    We had heard it was a lot like Myrtle Beach, and that was a fine reason to go. I love our crazy, funky, touristy area with its Canadian and Minnesota tourists, its bike rallies, golf courses, shows and big buffets. They say Myrtle Beach is the blue collar capital of the world, and that’s fine with me. Heck, I’m the daughter of a Maryland chicken farmer, so I’m comfortable with blue collar.
