During Smoky Mountain Winterfest, the communities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville go all out to celebrate Christmas and the entire holiday period. That includes millions of colorful lights and dozens of seasonally themed events. Our local music theaters always get in on the act too, offering up special holiday versions of their usual stage productions. Whether it's music, magic or games of competition in the spotlight, if you take in a show between now and the end of the year, there's a good chance you'll wind up receiving a little extra Christmas cheer.
Lots of visitors to the Smokies are familiar with Smoky Mountain Knife Works, located along Tenn. Hwy. 66 between downtown Sevierville and Interstate 40. For four decades, this popular retail destination has attracted a growing number of customers with its immense collection of knives, accessories, apparel and sporting goods.
A few months ago, we told you about a new section of Foothills Parkway that was expected to open in the fall. That future arrived last week, and with the opening of the so-called “Missing Link,” motorists, bikers and cyclists can now enjoy an uninterrupted 33-mile stretch of road that runs from U.S. Hwy. 129 near Chilhowee Lake to Wears Valley, TN.
All good things must come to an end, and here at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, we're looking at wrapping up our 2018 season within the next few weeks. It's nice out now, but soon, the weather conditions will get to the point where it's not feasible for us to stay open; it's just about that time of year when folks start to shy away from outdoor activities. In the meantime, however, we encourage you to take advantage of these beautiful fall days and come spend a few hours on our ziplines in the Smoky Mountains.
