Fabulous story, great cast and gives you a taste of the history of this mountainous area. Sitting outside in the evening is the best! You can meander around their shops and museum setting.

Don't miss this reenactment of Daniel Boone' North Carolina experience. It's educational, entertaining, very professional. Loved it! The actress that played the judges wife was hilarious

Not really sure. They do have bandicapped parking. The path to the ampitheater is wide and paved, But there are steps to the seating area. You might want to contact them with your question. They're very nice and helpful

Once you are inside there is a snack shack. But you can also purchase a meal with your tickets. The meal that we had was catered by the Dan'l Boone restaurant.
