As we sit here on the cusp of a new year, have you thought about any changes you might want to make for 2015? Have you made any resolutions about areas of your life that you might want to improve or new things you might like to try? If nothing else this next year, remember that it's never too late to take chances or to experience things you've never done before.
Whether you're visiting the Great Smoky Mountains area this week or not, we hope that you and your family have a wonderful and safe holiday week. But even if you're not here with us for Christmas itself, then you can still plan a fun getaway in the Smokies for this weekend. What can you do? Here are just a few suggestions.

Christmas is just weeks away, but at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, they've already gotten an early jump on the holiday season.

The festival runs now through January 3, 2015.
