I love Texas, but Tennessee will always be my most favorite state.

I lived there for some time, and worked in Gatlinburg. It was amazing! I loved everything about it!

They have made a lot of additions since I left, one being the Treetop Skywalk.

And if you haven’t heard of it, just wait – – it is a stunning and magical place.


Tennessee’s Treetop Skywalk is the longest tree-based bridge in North America.

It’s located right in Gatlinburg in a theme park called Anakeesta.

Anakeesta wasn’t there when I lived there. In fact I believe part of the park is built over top of where I worked back then.

Things have really changed and when I go back, I am visiting Anakeesta!

Anakeesta’s Treetop Skywalk is more than 800 feet of skybridges!

Imagine the views of the Smoky Mountains! The bridges are suspended 50-60 feet in the air!

As you can imagine, this place is quite popular.

Thousands of people come to visit this place every year and just looking at the pictures has me wishing I was there.


This is a great way to get some gorgeous views of nature and probably even spot some Black Bears safely!

I think Fall would be a beautiful time to go!


Back in April, there was an incident with a huge storm. It knocked down some trees and damaged a few of the bridges.

However, there are 11 of the 16 bridges still up and ready for you right now!


I think I am heading back to Gatlinburg in the Fall of 2023! I can not wait to check this all out!

Oh and if you’re wanting to get away at some point, there is another one in Indonesia called the Orchid Forest and it’s gorgeous!
