ANCHOR LEAD: Summer time brings with it the extra time for families to come together and build special memories. Brian Osuch has more on one destination which has been uniting families for years. (: 60)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Two out of three adults aged fifty-five or older fondly remember family vacations. And Mayor of Pigeon Forge Tennessee, David Wear says it's time to create some new memories.
CUT: (Wear) Summer vacation is important to us, because that's when we get the families coming in. And that's why Pigeon Forge is a great place to come and build those memories.
SCRIPT: Parents have so many vacation options to choose from… but Mayor Wear says consider a place where there's always something new happening.
CUT: (Wear) The new things at Pigeon Forge – we've got The Great Smoky Mountain Sky Wheel, which is an observation wheel. Takes you two-hundred feet up in the air, and you ride in a weather proof conditioned gondola. And then, we have the RiverRush; the very first water roller coaster in Tennessee. And then, we've got the Wonders of Flight balloon – tethered helium balloon, it takes thirty-people at a time up four-hundred feet up in the air. We have over ten-million visitors year round. We're a twelve-month destination. And over two-million of those guests, they stay overnight with us. We've got cabins and condos, bed and breakfasts, hotels and campground.
