While we’re only halfway through the summer season, the annual reminders that fall is just around the corner are beginning to creep in (you know, those school supply lists and class start dates), and there’s never been a better time to start thinking about taking a vacation in the Smokies this fall. Whether you’re in need of a quiet weekend away or a fall break trip full of family fun, the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas offer something that everyone can enjoy. Our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals are the perfect place to stay during your trip, and they will help you enjoy every aspect of the Smokies from the perfect weather to the gorgeous fall colors and much more! Keep reading to learn about 3 reasons we believe fall is the perfect time for a vacation in our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals:
1. Cooler Temperatures
One of our favorite things about fall vacations in the Smokies is the cooler temperatures that begin settling in around mid-September. While daytime temperatures might remain in the low 80s, humidity tapers off and evening temperatures tend to drop into the 50s – and it only gets more comfortable as you get deeper into the autumn months. The fall season is ideal for taking on popular outdoor activities in the Smokies including hiking to some of the area’s most beautiful peaks, as well as ziplining through the colorful treetops. Our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals are the perfect place to enjoy the fall temperatures with friends and family – whether you choose to spend evenings snuggled up by the fire or relaxing in your private hot tub, our cabins have all the things you need to make the most of the cooler weather.
2. Gorgeous Fall Foliage
For many fall vacationers, the entire reason they decided to come to the Smokies is because of the gorgeous fall foliage that begins to show its colors around late September/early October. From the stunning golds to the fiery reds and oranges that paint the mountainsides, it’s truly a view you must see for yourself in order to fully grasp its beauty. Whether you observe the colors from the private deck of one of our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals while relaxing with a cup of your favorite morning coffee as the sun rises over the mountains, or on a driving tour through Cades Cove, you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss this once-a-season experience!
3. Beat the Holiday Rush
It’s no secret that the holiday season in the Smokies is a busy one filled with thousands of new visitors each week looking to make special memories together. While it’s certainly a great time to visit, if you’re looking for a bit more laid back experience, the fall season is a great time to get the best of both worlds! You’ll still experience all of the charm of our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals, the best of the fall weather and exciting festivals and events that take place throughout the area, without having as many other visitors around as you would later in the holiday season.
Fall vacations truly offer you the best of the best when it comes to the Smokies, and spending time in one of our Great Smoky Mountain cabin rentals is a great way to create lasting memories with those you love in one of the most beautiful places in the country.
