The accommodations were beautiful, an A and B lockout--we had both sides. A side for my husband and myself and another side for the girls. A wonderful view off the back and a huge whirlpool in the bathroom. A lot of room and very clean and well kept. The girls loved having their own space and feeling all grown up.

Great breakfast buffet. If you like a country-style meal this is the place to eat. Extra large booths with plenty of room for the whole family. Nice and friendly people.

Silver Dollar City at Christmas time is beautiful. Christmas lights are everywhere. There are many craft shops to view and the park rides are open for the kids, but make sure you stay for the Christmas light parade.

Words cannot explain. I have never seen so many strange things. It was great, a must see. Cracks in a building that looked like it should not be standing. Two-headed animals. Items that are suspended in mid -air that cannot be moved. Something great for the whole family.
