Lodging and Transportation
Lodging and transportation is the responsibility of the individual. We encourage you to look into Dollywood’s new Dreammore Resort! The Dreammore is located down the street from Dollywood and connects with the park by a deluxe trolley system, eliminating the need for Dollywood parking. The resort is a 2 minute drive from the American Eagle Foundation. If you are parking at Dollywood, there may be additional parking fees.
On “American Eagle Day” June 20, the American Eagle Foundation is asking the American people to do the following:
Tell the story of how our National Symbol came to be.
Remember how we almost lost our living symbol, the Bald Eagle, in the wild to extinction, and how our nation rallied together to save and protect it.
Educate about the need to restore and protect eagles and all endangered species.
Observe the principles upon which our country’s independence and freedoms were founded.
Organize activities that renew the American spirit by promoting pride and patriotism.
Challenge citizens to strive toward quality and excellence in all that they do—acting like symbolic American Eagles.
Recognize people in communities across the nation who have made significant “beyond the call of duty” contributions to helping or improving the lives of others — American Eagle Heroes (give special “American Eagle Awards”).
