So we did!
We chose a popular destination for locals -- the Great Smokey Mountains.
We rented a little "Camping Cabin" that was perched on the edge of a hill overlooking Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Because it was May, we essentially had the entire RV/cabin park to ourselves. The last day I saw one person in the bathroom and we both jumped and screamed in surprise. It really felt like we had the whole town to ourselves! Seriously, staying in a place where you can think "I guess I'll just sit out here on the porch in my underwear" is my kind of vacation.
The kids loved having a pool and playground just down the road.
... except when baby brother steals all your fun. ha ha!
