Mix up your Memorial Day plans and take a trip to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. Both cities offer plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for you to enjoy while celebrating Memorial Day. Make it a three day weekend and head to the Smokies for some relaxation and memories. Whether you want to be close to downtown, up in the mountains or by the water we have a cabin for you.
Make the most of your day by hiking through trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. They have many trails that you could try out. If you’re not an avid hiker that’s perfect. They have beginner’s trails. If hiking isn’t on your agenda then make sure you go rafting. Wouldn’t you love getting in a raft and heading through the rapids with loved ones? Once you’ve mastered the rapids grab a tube and head down a river on a more peaceful trip with less adrenaline. After that you could go horseback riding. It’s a unique way to see the mountains. Don’t miss taking a trip to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge. Enjoy the theme park filled with coasters, water rides and shows but don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes.
Don’t like outdoor activities? There is plenty of indoor fun to be had while in the Smokies as well. Try out the Ripley’s attractions in Gatlinburg. The Ripley’s Aquarium is a great attraction for everyone no matter your age. Don’t miss out on the tunnel that winds through the shark tank. After that you can walk (or drive) over to Ripley’s Believe It or Not. It’s a “odditorium” filled with odds and ends collected by Ripley himself during his life. Plenty of shopping to be done along the strip as well. In Pigeon Forge take advantage of all the arcades, try out golf courses, race through the go-cart speedways and don’t forget the outlet mall!
Make it a memorable Memorial Day this year and visit the Smokies. Act quickly, you don’t want your vacation to pass you by. Start planning today!
