Looking for something to do next weekend that'll break you out of that vacation rut? If you're traveling in the Smokies the weekend of June 18, we've got some suggestions that'll let you experience some of the best entertainment and fun the area has to offer—and all of it with Smoky Mountain Flair.
Gatlinburg's 6th annual Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales celebration kicks off on the 17th and runs through August 13. This summer-long street performance event features musicians, storytellers and artisans, all with costumes depicting time periods as far back as the 1800s. Performers gather nightly at 6 p.m. downtown, at which point the sidewalks become stages and the various performers travel up and down the Parkway, delivering their respective brands of entertainment. The fun continues until 11 p.m., with as many as 14 acts appearing nightly.
Once you've had fun in Gatlinburg, zipline your way to big thrills at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge the next day. We'll help you shift gears from cultural entertainment to unadulterated fun and action as you speed your way from tree to tree on our scenic, wooded, hillside course. Our zipline adventures are the biggest and baddest in town, and we definitely offer the best value around.
