With Christmas stampeding toward us like a bull dressed in red and wearing a white beard, it may be time to consider getting some of your holiday shopping done while you're having fun in the Smokies. Of course, for many of you, shopping is a fun activity in itself, and if that's the case, here's an overview of some of the best places to find unique merchandise and moneysaving deals.
We may be just on the brink of winter, but autumn is still having a last hurrah this week thanks to a forecast of unseasonably warm days. Looks like highs are going to be in the upper 50s to mid-60s throughout the week with rain-free days, for the most part.
This time of year, seeing the sights in Pigeon Forge isn't an activity that's limited to daylight hours only. Now that Winterfest is in full swing, the city's millions of Winterfest lights provide a big bowlful of eye candy once the sun goes down.
Whether you're fortunate enough to live in this area or you just make it out this way once or twice a year, the beauty and majesty of the Great Smoky Mountains are cause for even the most jaded of visitors to be thankful this time of year. The most visited of all the national parks, its GSM's 800-plus square miles encompasses unspoiled forests, pristine streams and some of the highest peaks east of the Mississippi River.
This season, lots of holiday lovers and cold-weather fans will be descending on the Great Smoky Mountains as Winterfest returns to Sevier County for its 22nd big year. Winterfest is a four-month-long celebration not just of Christmas but of everything that makes this region great during the winter season. Once upon a time, winter was referred to as the “off season,” and while it's still not as big as summer and fall, more and more people have been traveling to the mountains to enjoy the area in a whole different kind of atmosphere.
