There are so many Smoky Mountain activities to choose from, and the endless options can become overwhelming, so we’ve put together a list of our 4 favorites to help you plan your weekend!

1. Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country

Dollywood and Dollywood’s Splash Country are two of the most popular Smoky Mountain activities because they are so much fun for the whole family. As a matter of fact, you might want to plan a couple days to fully enjoy everything these parks have to offer!

A day at Dollywood will include lively bluegrass music, a variety of theater shows, exciting rides, lots of southern foods and so much more. From a special area filled with rides for small kids to the most thrilling roller coasters in the world, Dollywood has tons of fun for everyone in your family!

If you’re gearing up for a day at Splash Country, you’ll want to be sure to bring a bathing suit, a towel, sunglasses, sunscreen and lots of energy! Voted a Top 10 Water Park by Tripadvisor, you’ll be amazed by all the fun slides that cover 35 acres of land. And if water slides aren’t your thing, don’t worry. You’ll love floating down the lazy river or splashing around in the wave pool!

2. Cades CoveHorses grazing in Cades Cove.

For a calm and beautiful day exploring the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, plan a visit to Cades Cove. Cades Cove is one of the most highly visited areas of the national park because it offers many great ways to see the sights. If you love to hike, there are several trails to enjoy a stroll. If you’d rather take in the views from the comfort of your car, the 11-mile loop is a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery and maybe even spot a critter or 2! And if you’re interested in history, you’ll love exploring the old churches, cabins and grist mills scattered throughout the park. Don’t forget your camera because you’ll definitely want to capture the beauty around you!

3. Hang Out at Your Cabin

You’ve booked a few nights at a cabin, so you might as well enjoy them to the fullest! As much fun as it is to explore the city and visit attractions, it can be just as much fun to kick back, relax and spend time in your cabin. Our Smoky Mountain cabins are equipped with all the best amenities to keep you and your family entertained for days on end, including fully loaded game rooms, tons of outdoor living space, theater rooms with surround sound and a secluded hot tub perfect for soaking in the views!

Another fun way to vacation with us is to choose one of our pet friendly cabins and bring your 4-legged friends along for the ride! Not only will your pet love being included in the family activities, but you and your kids will have so much fun taking him hiking, shopping and sightseeing! Plus, you’ll avoid the hassle and expense of boarding him for the weekend.
