You feel it, right? You need a vacation. The chance to get back to nature, to play and laugh and enjoy your friends and family. You need some time to relax and de-stress from the constant demands and responsibilities in your life. Well, we feel you too, and we think you’re absolutely right. You do deserve a break, and if you still need some convincing before you book a cabin and jump in the car, here are at least three good reasons why.
- You work HARD. Did you know, according to an ABC News article, that “Americans work more than anyone in the industrialized world”? The facts are astonishing, but true! Americans work more hours, more days of the year, and that’s why this is our number-one reason you deserve a Smoky Mountain retreat! You deserve a chance to step away from your cubicle and feel the Smoky Mountain breeze running through your hair. You deserve a chance to ride Ober Gatlinburg’s Mountain Coaster, not sit through another week of bumper-to-bumper morning traffic. So sign out of your email, put away your phone, and open up a brand new world of fun-filled opportunities in the Smokies!
- You need to de-stress. You want to be a better employee, a better spouse, a better parent, a better you? You need a chance to de-stress! You need a chance to unwind and relax and let go of the tension that’s built up over the past few months because of demanding schedules and long to-do lists. Parents especially know what it means to feel stretched to the max. Kids need you 24/7. They need to be fed and driven around and helped and bathed and put to bed—only to do it all again the next day! And working parents have the double challenge of balancing their hectic schedule at work with the responsibilities of home. If this sounds like your life, then a romantic trip for two to the Smoky Mountains might be just what the doctor ordered! Even if the kids are coming along, you can still find some time for yourself by sending them to an overnight camp at Ripley’s Aquarium or sending them upstairs to play in one of our game-equipped cabins. And please, don’t feel guilty about taking this time for yourself. Remember that a de-stressed parent is a better parent all around!
- Your body needs fresh air. The climbing obesity rate in America just might have something to do with our climbing work hours. We work hard and forget to take care of ourselves—we are just simply too exhausted to give our bodies what they need. A Smoky Mountain getaway is the perfect solution to not only finding time to relax, but also finding time to get your body moving and enjoy the great outdoors. What could be more revitalizing than hitting the trails at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you’ll not only get great exercise but also some much-needed vitamin D? And if you bring your phone, we hope it’s only to take pictures of the gorgeous scenery surrounding you in these mountains. You deserve this opportunity to really unplug and unwind while you’re in the Smokies!
Convinced yet? We hope so, because we are certain that no one deserves a Smoky Mountain getaway more than you! The Smokies are the perfect combination of outdoor adventures and indoor fun. Whatever you’re hoping to do—swim, golf, fish, relax, laugh, play—you can find it all in the Smoky Mountains!
