    What does the "Properly posted sign" for TN look Like?

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I got this info from Handgunlaw.us :


    (a) An individual, corporation, business entity or local, state or federal government entity or agent thereof is authorized to prohibit the possession of weapons by any person otherwise authorized by 39-17-1351 39-17-1360, at meetings conducted by, or on property owned, operated, or managed or under the control of such individual, corporation, business entity or government entity. Notice of such prohibition shall be posted. Posted notices shall be displayed in prominent locations, including all entrances primarily used by persons entering the building, portion of the building or buildings where weapon possession is prohibited. If the possession of weapons is also prohibited on the premises of any such property as well as within the confines of a building located on such property, the notice shall be posted at all entrances to the premises that are primarily used by persons entering the property. The notice shall be in English but a notice may also be posted in any language used by patrons, customers or persons who frequent the place where weapon possession is prohibited. In addition to the sign, notice may also include the international circle and slash symbolizing the prohibition of the item within the circle. The sign shall be of a size that is plainly visible to the average person entering the building, premises or property and shall contain language substantially similar to the following:

    Pursuant to 39-17-1359, the owner/operator of this property has banned weapons on this property, or within this building or this portion of this building. Failure to comply with this prohibition is punishable as a criminal act under state law and may subject the violator to a fine of not more than five hundred dollars ($500).
    (emphasis added)

    It's very clear that a posting in TN must meet certain requirements to carry the force of law.

    The posting at the Ripley's Aquarium, for example, does NOT meet these requirements.

    Since you are going in May, you probably won't be swamped by too many tourists on vacation. So you should be able to get around fairly easily. Gatlinburg itself has become a typical tourist town with shop after shop of Chinese made rick-rack. But there are a few gems among the rubble of stores that have some unique merchandise and spending part of one day going from store to store and seeing what they have can be fun.
    Pigeon Forge has become a shoppers Paradise (or hell) depending on how you feel about shopping. Outlet Malls have taken over the town. If your fiance likes mall shopping and you don't, blindfold her as you go through Pigeon Forge or your entire trip may be sidetracked for the worse. There are also a lot of music and comedy shows you can take in of various quality of entertainment. Some are pretty good and some are awful. Luck of the draw.

    For sightseeing, which is why I go to the area these days, there is an abundance of choices. Cades Cove which is about 20 miles out of Gatlinburg is wonderful if you like to look at farmland and read the history of the area. There are several old farmhouses you can walk to and go in. Also some short hikes to points of interest along the way. And lots of deer and an occasional bear.
    Roaring Fork Motor Trail is practically right in Gatlinburg on Airport Rd. and is very much like Cades Cove, just not as big.

    Of course you have the Smokey Mountains with all they have and a road that takes you right to Cherokee and the Casino if your interested in that.

    Also don't forget you have Dollywood and the Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge and the Aquarium in Gatlinburg. All three are great if your into what they offer.

    Lastly, the best thing about the area that I like is the food. There are restaurants galore with many choices that are top notch. You can't go wrong if your hungry and in the area. I could name several places that are especially good but I will limit it to two. The Log Cabin Pancake House on Airport Rd. for breakfast is fantastic. And for Dinner drive to Pigeon Forge and eat at the Old Mill Restaurant
    You'll be glad you did. Old Mill Square Restaurant in Pigeon Forge, TN | Restaurants in the Smokies, Restaurants in the Great Smoky Mountains, Southern Hospitality in Pigeon Forge, East Tennessee
    Good luck and I hope you have a great time.
