This weekend, most of us get to enjoy a much-needed three-day weekend thanks to the annual Labor Day holiday. The observance was created as a way to acknowledge and reward the American worker with an extra day of leisure, so that means you have three chances this weekend to come and recreate with us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines.
Some areas of Great Smoky Mountains National Park just seem to get all the attention. The 11-mile loop around the Cades Cove community, the synchronized fireflies at Tremont and high-altitude viewing sites like Mt. LeConte and Clingman's Dome are definitely among the most visited sites in the park.
In some ways, whitewater rafting is a lot like ziplining. They're both adventurous outdoor activities that most people can try with no previous experience whatsoever. Naturally, we're a little partial to ziplining here, but in addition to paying us a visit at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, we think you should also consider trying your hand (actually, both hands) at whitewater rafting.
Pigeon Forge has only been an incorporated community for a few decades, but its history can be traced back much further than that. One of the city's true landmarks, The Old Mill & General Store, stands as a testimony to the fact that folks were calling Pigeon Forge home a long, long time ago. This historic structure has been operating on the banks of the Little Pigeon River since 1830.
