June 9, 2016

Are you planning a summer vacation to the Smoky Mountains? If you are, you might be asking yourself, “where do I start?”

Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains offer a wide variety of things to do and see for their visitors. Planning a trip can seem like a daunting task. Here’s how you can plan the perfect itinerary!

Step 1: Smoky Mountain Cabins

The first step of planning the perfect vacation is finding the perfect place to stay! If you want to make your trip to the Smokies authentic, a Smoky Mountain cabin rental is a must! Our Smoky Mountain cabins are a must! Imagine waking up to a breathtaking view of the mountains… Or saving money by making breakfast and lunch in your very own, fully equipped kitchen. Cabins are spacious, luxurious and perfect for the whole family. Our cabins are only minutes away from Gatlinburg and the National Park.

Step 2: Plan Your Days

The Smoky Mountains are a popular place to be in the summertime. Everybody wants to breathe in that mountain air, visit their favorite attractions and be with family. Have a discussion with your family during the planning process. Making the perfect itinerary is achievable if you plan ahead and make sure all of your party is on the same page. If you want to see certain shows such as Dixie Stampede, Hatfield and McCoy’s, etc. make your reservations in advance to guarantee your spot! If you plan to do hiking, keep in mind the trails will be crowded in the summer months. Plan to hit the trails early so you can beat the crowds!

Step 3: Get Organized!

Now that you’ve booked a Smoky Mountain cabin and selected the attractions you want to see, make an itinerary! Map out where you will be each day so you don’t miss a thing! Your itinerary should include meal plans for each day. Luckily, our kitchens allow for flexibility and cost efficient options. Choose your favorite places to dine out and go there for dinner! Keeping a schedule will ensure a vacation full of fun!
