Top Ideas for a Birthday to Remember

What better reason to plan a trip to the Smokies than in celebration of a loved one’s birthday? You’ll find attractions for every gender and age group—whether you’re celebrating your daughter, your grandson, or your spouse of 50-some years!

Below, we’ve listed just a FEW ideas of what you’ll find in the area. And don’t forget that staying in one of our Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge cabins can be exciting enough. We have cabins with all kinds of special amenities—outdoor hot tubs, indoor Jacuzzi tubs, game tables, private theaters, and more!

So make this year’s birthday celebration one to remember by planning a trip with us to the Smoky Mountains!

For Young Girls

Do you want a unique way to celebrate your daughter or granddaughter’s birthday in Pigeon Forge? Head to Goats on the Roof (look for the building with actual goats on the roof!), and try their gem mining attraction. Your daughter and her friends will love sifting the soil for their very own rubies, sapphires, and emeralds.

If you’re really creative, you might even stop by a local craft store and pick up a jewelry kit for a fun craft night with your new-found treasures. But before you leave Goats on the Roof, definitely stop by their Sweet Shop and pick up some homemade goodies for your girls’ night in!
When you book your stay with us, you can make your girls’ night even more exciting by choosing a Smoky Mountain cabin with its own private theater or fully loaded game room. We even have cabins with indoor private pools! Make your daughter’s or granddaughter’s birthday celebration extra special this year by choosing a decked out cabin for her big day!

For Young Boys

A boy’s birthday bash in the Smokies has to include a visit to one of the most popular attractions in the area, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies! This top-rated aquarium—ranked #5 in the world—is worth a visit even if you aren’t celebrating a special occasion. But for birthdays, it’s a hard attraction to beat!

That’s because Ripley’s Aquarium (a Cabins For You partner, which means discounted ticket prices simply because you booked your stay with us) offers so much more than its fascinating exhibits and hands-on attractions to your birthday boy. They’ll actually coordinate the entire birthday celebration for you—cakes, decorations, goody bags, and all! Simply visit the Group Events page on their website, and fill out a Birthday Inquiry Form to get started today.

While a birthday bash at Ripley’s Aquarium is exciting enough, this unique Gatlinburg attraction also offers your son or grandson a chance to “Sleep with the Sharks”! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch a private dive show, participate in a scavenger hunt, and drift to sleep with a tank of sharks overhead. What better birthday sleepover could your son possibly ask for?

Beyond Ripley’s Aquarium, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have tons of other fun things to do, like go karts, ziplines, miniature golf, laser tag, and arcades! So even if you’re not planning a party with friends, he’ll have plenty of fun things to do on his special day in the Smoky Mountains. And you can rent a cabin with an awesome rec room where he can play into the wee hours of the night!

For Your Spouse

Kids aren’t the only ones who deserve a special Smoky Mountain celebration for their birthdays. That’s why Cabins For You has put together unique gift baskets, in-cabin meals, and other special add-ons to help you make the most of your spouse’s milestone occasion!
If you’re interested in an all-inclusive vacation package, we have several to choose from.

Try our Smoky Mountain Luxury package, which includes a 7-night stay in a 1- to 2-bedroom cabin, a candlelit steak dinner for 2, a breakfast basket, and an hour-long couple’s massage. Another version of our Smoky Mountain Luxury package is the Romantic Getaway for Two, which includes a budget-friendly cabin for two nights, a dozen roses, and 2 dozen chocolate strawberries.

You can’t go wrong with our vacation packages, but if you want to do things a la carte, that’s an option as well. Simply ask our reservation specialists about adding a gift basket to your stay. Lavender Temptations and Princess Bath and Bouquet are great options for women. A few options for men or women include the Hearthside Basket, the Spirit of the Smokies, and Java Time (if your spouse is a coffee lover).

You can also add a romantic dinner for 2 or a couple’s massage to your getaway. These are great ways to add some excitement to your spouse’s birthday celebration without having to drive downtown and wait in line at a Pigeon Forge attraction and/or restaurant.

If you have any questions about these special add-ons or any of our Smoky Mountain cabins, you can easily start an online chat with a reservation specialist (look for the pop-up chat box in the bottom left-hand corner) or call us toll free at 1-800-684-7865. We want to help you make this year’s birthday celebration one you’ll always remember!
