If you’ve been keeping up with what’s going on in Gatlinburg by reading our blog, you know that there are literally thousands of things to do in the area. Between laser tag, outlet and specialty shopping, delicious restaurants, dinner shows, go karts, and family attractions, you could spend an entire week here with every day completely full of activities. And while that may be just the vacation you love, you will probably need a little time at night to wind down before you’re out for the night. Christmas will be here in just a few days, so here are some holiday movies to enjoy in the cabin after a busy day around town.
Home Alone – When 8 year old Kevin McCallister is left behind by his family at Christmas, he has to outwit two idiotic burglars in order to defend his home and stay safe until his family makes it back home to him. With fun, suspense, and friendship, this is a great movie for everyone in the family.
Polar Express – In this heartwarming story of a young boy who doubts the existence of Santa Claus, a magical train, the Polar Express, takes a group of children to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. This is a truly wonderful and sweet story for the little ones in your life.
It’s A Wonderful Life – In this classic holiday story, a desperate businessman is shown by an angel what life would have been like if he had never existed. On Christmas Eve, George Bailey believes his family would be better off without him, but he is reassured of their love and his importance just in time. This is a great choice for the grown ups in the cabin.
Elf – This is my favorite Christmas movie! After learning that he is actually a human and not an elf, Buddy (Will Ferrell) travels to New York City to find his biological father. In the process, he falls in love and reminds the city what Christmas is really about.
Renting some holiday favorites and curling up by the fire in the cabin is the perfect way to relax and spend the weekend. Grab a few of these great movies, whip up some cookies and cocoa, and enjoy some time with the family.
