Bring Your Swimsuit
You don’t need to be on a beach to play in water this spring break. There are many Pigeon Forge hotels with water parks. Or if you are planning on staying in a cabin, be sure to look for Pigeon Forge cabin rentals with pool access. If your spring break is a little later in the year, you can go white water rafting, tubing, kayaking or even canoeing.
Outdoor Activities Galore
The weather during this time of year is the perfect mixture of cool breezes and summer sun. Breath in some fresh air and enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, picnicking and more! Whether you are appreciating nature or drooling over one of the many cars displayed at the rod runs, we promise you won’t be denied the opportunity for outdoor fun.
You don’t have to work hard to find beautiful vistas in the Smokies. Some spots give you miles to take in—you can see seven states from the highest point! Good hiking options include Gregory Bald, Mount LeConte, Abrams Falls, Alum Cave. Or, just drive through the park. The spring blossoms are a refreshing and peaceful way to enjoy your break.
With nearly 50 rides and attractions, Dollywood Theme Park is a spring break mecca of family fun. Get soaked at the Daredevil Falls logging camp. Or if you want to stay dry, check out Dolly’s Home On Wheels — a chance to go inside Dolly Parton’s personal tour bus or the Festival of Nations. In addition to rides and entertainment, you’ll find plenty of delicious and down-home country cookin’ at more than 20 different dining options around the park.
It’s spring. THIS IS THE TIME TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! Birds are singing, flowers are blooming and the sun feels warm on your skin again. The best place to see nature’s rebirth is the mountains! Mix things up this spring break and replace your view of a desk with a view of the mountains. Take advantage of the Smoky Mountains—the only free national park in the country. The transition of seasons makes hiking to lookouts and cruising on scenic drives in the Smokies even more memorable and refreshing than ever. Learn more about the region’s nature before you come, so you can point out the different creatures and identify plants when they start to blossom in early April.
The first step to enjoying a memorable vacation with your family is to choose a destination that you all love. Gatlinburg has something that everyone in your group will enjoy, this includes a variety of entertainment options, such as shops, attractions, shows, walkways and more! I like to think of the Smokies as the wholesome Vegas of the South. Drive down Pigeon Forge’s Parkway—especially at night—and you’ll understand what I’m talking about. What I love is not only will you have plenty to do, but also there are so many great places to stay for families.
