We stopped at Three Bears as there was a coupon book stating there were live bears. From the outside you definitely wouldn't think they had live bears inside, so we had to stop and see for ourselves!

´Tis a Grand day. My wife spies Three Bears General Store, and announces, "stop" with a sense of urgency. I take several jpgs, and ask her to meet me in the car. There is a busload of school age children shopping, and we wonder which state educational standards are being met? My wife recommends.

We stopped by this store on the way out of Pigeon Forge one Sunday. This store has a little bit of everything. From Simply Southern shirts, to honey and jams, to sling shots, and cars. You'll definitely find something to catch your interest! And you can't forget the fudge or ice cream while you are there.

This is a must visit. So many souvenirs at an affordable price. Live bears out back. Scrumptious desserts. The butter pecan ice cream is super yummy!

If you can't find it here you don't really need it! The tease of free fudge was not a tease at all. Creamy Almond Joy fudge was delicious along with 2 cherry cordials and some almond bark gave us sweets for the day. Lots of interesting things to see!
