the titanic | pigeon forge, tn

This summer, the girls participated in a reading program at our local library and Isabella won 2nd place for number of minutes she read. Her prize? Two tickets to The Titanic attraction. Since the girls were on Fall Break last week, we decided that we should brave the traffic. We don't live far from Pigeon Forge, TN...actually it's only 45 minutes away. There are so many attractions and activities to enjoy, but we usually don't give them a second thought. You know how you don't do the tourist-y things where you live, but seem to do them when you go on vacation?

The girls loved it, we loved it and I wouldn't mind seeing it all again. We even had the talking earphone tour option that offered additional facts and stories, definitely a plus.

On our way out, we noticed that they were taking photos of every group as they left. We tried to sneak away without a photo, but no luck. They posed us, they posed the girls and we went on our merry way. Then, as we were browsing in the Gift Shop for some books for the girls, a staff member rushed up to us and asked if they could use our photo on promotional materials {brochures, billboards...} in return for a free set of photographs. We signed our rights away and have a family photo and a pretty cool story. All this on a bad hair day.

So, if you happen to see this photo anywhere, snag a brochure and send me a copy, I'd love to see it. You can see other photos of our Titanic adventure in my Instagram feed {@monikawright}.


  1. The cute Wright family strikes again!! How fun!!

  2. Love your family photo!
    I saw the Titanic attraction when we drove through Pigeon Forge earlier in the month! I wondered how it would be. So glad y'all had a great time. Love how the girls are wearing matching sweatshirts! Your hair looks great!

  3. How cool!! We went to a Titanic attraction in Vegas a few years back. Very interesting, and so moving. Mike is fascinated will all things Titanic. Congrats on your new notoriety!!

  4. Funny! I can see why they want to use it! You all look happy to be Pigeon Forge! I never really consider this for a trip either even though I LOVE heading west and visiting Asheville and Blowing Rock. I wonder how far it is from us?
