"Hidden treasure"
October, 2015
Three of us traveled to Pigeon Forge area, Went on line prior and found Christ in the Smokies and purchased the tickets to surprise the other two. We loved it. The characters were so realistic, made you feel like you were a part of the scene. Beautiful portrayal of each event. This little hidden treasure is worth the visit, we now tell everyone we know to stop by. Most that has travel there for years did not even realize it was there.

"Visiting Christ in the Smokies"
July, 2015
I visited Christus Gardens in the early 70's with my children and wanted to relive the experience. It was better now than then. With each scene, My wife and I were taken back into time. It was breathtaking. The people in the scenes looked as real as if we were talking with them. It certainly made me glad to call myself Christian after my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My plans are to go back next year for another visit. If you are going to Gatlinburg, stop in. One of the best attractions in town.

If you are in Gatlinburg and have a little extra time and are a religious person you need to see this attraction. It is very moving as you go to each of the exhibits detailing the life of Christ. You can't take pictures inside but once in the garden you can. There was no charge for parking when we were there.

Took some time in the afternoon to visit. Wasn't sure what to expect but was greatly surprised. The first part was a walk thru experience. They have a nice prayer garden and good collection of items from biblical times. I was encouraged and enjoyed my time there. A quiet place inside the middle of town to remember biblical events.

I travel to the mountains because I enjoy the look and feel of the mountains I was raised in and because the splendor of it all refreshes my spirit. To see a place like this telling the story of Jesus as told in the scriptures just added to the good my overall trip to the Smokies did for me.
