Maybe that title is a little misleading. Maybe ziplining isn't exactly a fine art. But if you hang out for a while with us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge, you'll find it to be a beautiful and inspiring experience all the same.
Imagine yourself outside on a gorgeous spring day with the rolling hills and woodlands of the Great Smoky Mountains as your backdrop. You're surrounded by lush greenery and caressed by spring breezes as you speed from platform to platform on our 14-line canopy tour. And the view from above is indeed inspiring. As you zip along at speeds as fast as 40 miles per hour, you'll get a birds-eye view of the hillsides and valleys that lie far beneath your dangling sneakers.
But if you're still interested in fine art after you've had some time to zipline, Gatlinburg should be your next stop this weekend. That's when the city is hosting its annual Fine Arts Festival. This year's seventh annual event takes place near the Arrowmont School of Art and Pi Beta Phi Elementary in Gatlinburg. The street fair showcases artists who are tops in their fields nationally and features works ranging from ceramics and glass to watercolor and wood working. The event, which is free of charge, also includes children's activities, live music and views of the nearby Great Smoky Mountains.
