You don’t have to look too far to find a great reason to visit the Great Smoky Mountains. Families, groups of friends, and couples are all guaranteed to find something they enjoy. Whether you’re planning a trip for the week or the weekend, make sure you consider the breathtaking Smoky Mountains for a vacation filled with memories you will cherish for a lifetime.
Why you should visit the Smokies
Between work and school, most people spend a majority of their time indoors. Doesn’t a vacation filled with crisp mountain air and cool, flowing rivers sound refreshing? If so, a vacation to the Smokies is the perfect choice for you. Break up the monotony and enjoy the great outdoors with a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. Stretch your legs and enjoy the sunshine as you venture through this beautiful range of mountains along the Appalachian Trail.
A great way to enjoy the Smokies is to visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Gatlinburg. Maybe you’re wanting to visit the stunning beauty of old-growth forests or experience the cool mist from a rushing waterfall. Maybe you’re wanting to see some wildlife, such as the most famous resident of the park – the American black bear. You’ll see all this and more when you visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
With a variety of nature trails, you can explore all the interesting exhibits and environments this park has to offer. From log cabins to wildflowers, the Smoky Mountains area has more than enough to peak your interest while afoot. Some trails in the park are for more seasoned hikes, such as the 12-mile hike to the summit of Mount LeConte, but you’ll also find plenty of trails that are safe and enjoyable for the entire family, such as the mile-and-a-half trek to the Little Greenbrier School.
The park is free and open all day, every day. Besides learning the history and culture of the area, the park offers a close-up view of the grandeur of the Smokies.
Other activities in and around the Smokies include ziplines in and around Gatlinburg, a perfect way to take your vacation to new heights. Or you may want to play it safe and enjoy the relaxing rapids of the river. Check out the Smoky Mountains River Rat website for more information on tube and kayak rentals. For other outdoor ideas, including fishing, cycling, camping, mountain golfing, bird watching, and horseback riding, visit the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce website.
Why a cabin is the perfect way to enjoy your stay
Whether you plan to visit the Smokies to enjoy the spectacular views, to join in the outdoor fun, or to simply relax in a mountain retreat, renting a mountain cabin in the heart of the Smokies is the perfect option for you. With a variety of cabins available, you are sure to find the one that best accommodates your plans. Here are just a few reasons why cabin rentals should be a part of your vacation to the beautiful Smoky Mountains:
- Privacy. When you rent a cabin, you don’t have to worry about other vacationers keeping you up too late or waking you up too early. You have a private retreat where you are free to enjoy the breathtaking scenery without interruption or disturbances.
- Convenience. Although Smoky Mountain cabin rentals are secluded in the Smokies, they are close enough to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville, Tennessee, to accommodate whatever daytime or nighttime activities you have scheduled during your stay. Cabins also include more amenities than regular hotel rooms such as game rooms, big screen TVs, and pool access. And many of the cabins are pet friendly as well, so you can bring Fido along with you to enjoy the great outdoors.
- Comfort. One of the best features of a cabin is the amount of space available to you and your family or group. The open design of the cabins can accommodate large groups in a single space, affording you the opportunity to enjoy one another’s company without resorting to the hotel lobby. If you are planning a family reunion or group retreat, renting a cabin is the perfect option. But even if it’s just you and your family, the larger spaces are sure to make for a comfortable and memorable vacation.
- Uniqueness. Each cabin has a unique design and setup, giving you the feeling of home while you’re away. The décor, furnishings, and woodwork will make for a familiar setting, and these cozy and luxurious decorations were specifically chosen with you in mind. They'll aid in your relaxation and comfort while you enjoy your stay in the Smokies.
