Looking for a way to shake up the Thanksgiving holiday? This year, consider spending Turkey Day in the Smokies. The forecast for this week is terrific—sunny, with highs in the low sixties—which means great weather for either Black Friday shopping or perhaps walking off some of that pecan pie with a hike in the mountains.
It's still not to late to reserve one of the thousands of Smoky Mountain rental cabins available in the area. Dozens of different companies offer a wide selection of luxury rentals in a variety of locations. You can be close to town or out in the country, rustic or modern, large or small; the choice is yours.
And while almost all cabin rentals feature full kitchens complete with cookware, silverware and dishes, chances are you won't want to cook your own turkey on Thanksgiving day. Not to worry. Not only will most restaurants in the Smokies be open on Thanksgiving, but many will also be serving up special holiday feasts. Here are a few suggestions:
Ober Gatlinburg – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thanksgiving classics like turkey, ham, cornbread dressing and gravy, etc.
Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que – 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. A turkey buffet dinner featuring turkey, ham, five different veggies and more.
Applewood Farmhouse – 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Their Thanksgiving feast includes roast turkey and dressing, prime rib, country vegetables and even a to-go dinner option.
