We've finally gotten a break from the heat here in East Tennessee. That means if you're headed to the mountains any time this week, you need to shuffle those outdoor fun activities to the top of your list of vacation priorities! One thing we can always recommend is taking an excursion into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Especially in the middle of the week, when tourism numbers a little lower than the weekend, it's a great time to get out on the trails and do some hiking or pitch a tent in one of the park's campgrounds. Don't forget to bring a fishing pole for some trout fishing and a camera for capturing images of all the great scenery. (Also don't forget that you'll need a fishing license if you plan to do some fishing.)
Another great outdoor-fun option is a day of ziplining, and when you want to zip line, Tennessee is the home of Smoky Mountain Ziplines. We offer a 14-line canopy course that traverses hillside valleys and offers plenty of shade to keep you cool. You'll also stay cool whizzing along our scenic ziplines at high speeds with the wind in your hair. All that, combined with the more moderate temperatures and lower humidity rates this week mean that you can have a lot of fun this week and keep your cool at the same time.
