By now, most schools around the country are officially out, and we're more than a week past Memorial Day. It's official; summer is here. That means that a lot more visitors headed to the Smokies this week are families on vacation. If that's you, then read on to get an idea of some of the special happenings that are taking place in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville this week.
• If your travels take you to Gatlinburg this week, you might be interested to know that the city is offering free trolley service for most of the summer. Look for the specially marked, open-air shuttles, which will run from 10 a.m. to 10:30 daily, June 13 through August 17. They will run along a special route that includes more than 40 stops.
• The Oak Ridge Boys will be in concert at Country Tonite Theatre this Saturday, June 14. These multiple-award winners will bring their patented four-part harmonies and chart-topping songs to the stage beginning at 8 p.m.
• Dollywood's Great American Summer runs June 14 through August 3, during which the park's operating hours will be from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Each day will begin with a live performance of the “Star Spangled Banner,” and each night will conclude with a spectacular fireworks extravaganza entitled “Dolly's Nights Of Many Colors.” Most rides will be open until after dark.
Summer days are also ideal for ziplining, and if you want to try out the best place in the area to zipline, Pigeon Forge is where you'll find us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. We hope to see you and your family soon!
