For some folks, Thanksgiving means time at home with family, enjoying a big meal and giving thanks for blessings. Maybe this year, though, it might be fun to shake things up a bit and let someone else do all the cooking. In fact, you could visit the Great Smoky Mountains next week, have that turkey dinner and still get to enjoy all the great things about a vacation in the Smokies.
In fact, a good number of restaurants in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville will be open on Thanksgiving day, but if you still insist on having traditional foods like turkey and dressing and the like, then here are few places that will be setting a yummy holiday spread.
In Sevierville, Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant is a favorite place to eat any time of year, but they do Thanksgiving right too with a feast that features roast turkey, dressing, prime rib and sides like mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and green beans. Of course, you'll get to try their apple fritters and apple butter too. They're open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. that day.
In Pigeon Forge, stop by Old Mill Square, where the original Old Mill restaurant and the Pottery House Café & Grill will be serving up a similar family-sized feast.
You'll find Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que in both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and their buffet dinner includes turkey, ham, veggies, soup and salad bar, and desserts. They'll be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Finally, you could take the Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg for their Thanksgiving Day dinner, served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Highlights include turkey, ham, cornbread dressing and lots of traditional Southern sides.
If the weather permits next week, and you start to get a little stir crazy, come see us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge. Our outdoor attraction has more to offer than any of the Sevierville or Gatlinburg ziplines, and we're one of the best values around.
