We're not even fully into August yet, but these days, kids and their parents are already going back to school in most parts of the country. Typically, the young ones are sad about it, and the parents are overjoyed, but there's still time this weekend and in the weekends to come to enjoy on last summer outing together as a family. Here are a few suggestions for ways to take advantage of being in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
• Enjoy some discounts – This weekend is the state's annual Sales Tax-Free Weekend, which means you can stock up on qualified items without paying Tennessee's 9-cent sales tax per dollar. This is a great opportunity to get school supplies and back-to-school clothing and accessories. Also, it's Celebrate Freedom! month in Pigeon Forge. Participating businesses throughout town are offering discounts for active and veteran military personnel in honor of their service to our country.
• Do something outdoors – Head into Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a hike or picnic, drive or bike the Cades Cove loop, go see a Tennessee Smokies baseball game in Sevierville, stay cool and wet at your favorite area water park, run the Pigeon Forge Midnight 8k road race this Saturday night or spend a morning or afternoon with us on our own Smokey Mountain ziplines in Pigeon Forge.
• Do something indoors – Go see a music, magic or comedy show at one of the many show theaters in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Many of them also serve a meal with their show. Or take your pick of any of the dozens of awesome attractions in all our cities, including animal exhibits, cool museums and lots of amusement-style fun such as go-cart tracks, bungee lines, mini golf and arcades.
