Lexie picked the Great Smoky Mountains for her birthday, and I was super worried. I was thinking small mountain town – this was the exact opposite of what I was thinking. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg were super fun towns with tons of fun things to do. SHOWNOTES: thefaiolas.com/21

After spending a month in the area, we have compiled a list of free family things to do in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. We stayed in Las Vegas at the end of 2020 and into the new year. It was a lot of fun, and we explored some off-the-beaten-path adventures that didn't break the bank. You will find Jeep trails, road trips, attractions, and fun things to do on the strip.

In this episode, we give you our move day and road trip tips on keeping your kiddos (and yourself) happy. Our road trips in the Jeep can be a couple of hours to all day in the car. Many of our road trips are going to a Jeep trail, so that's even longer in the Jeep. Our move days can be from an hour to five hours. We have even had a couple of nine-hour days, and that's a long time driving in an RV.
