Freakish winter storms notwithstanding, this is a great time of year to visit the Smokies and take a spin on our zip lines in Pigeon Forge, TN. We're moving into our regular schedule for the season and with temperatures rebounding nicely the rest of this week and moving into April, this is the ideal time to come to Smoky Mountain Ziplines. Crowds are down until Memorial Day weekend, and it's getting sunny and warm enough to really enjoy some zippy outdoor fun on one of our canopy tours or SuperZip runs.
Before you travel to this area, however, you'll want to give some consideration to where you'll be staying. Unless you live within an hour's drive, it's easier just to book accommodations for one or more nights, freeing up more time to enjoy ziplining or any of the other hundreds of shops, attractions and special events in the area.
Smoky Mountain accommodations run the gamut, offering a wide range of options depending on your destination, planned activities and size of travel party.
For starters, there are dozens and dozens of hotels and motels that lie in the Smokies corridor between Interstate 40 and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. From small mom-and-pop establishments to large, luxurious national chains, you'll find plenty of choices right along the main Parkway and secondary routes as well.
Another popular selection is overnight rentals. Choose from log cabins, quaint cottages, mountain chalets or condominiums, which range from cozy honeymoon properties to large, luxurious multi-bedroom properties capable of housing a corporate group or family reunion. You'll find these located mainly in the less populated, mountainous areas.
And don't forget about some of the other less common choices, including bed and breakfast inns and campgrounds. There are several B&Bs in the area that make it their mission to spoil their guests with scenic locations, personalized service and delicious food. Meanwhile, those who prefer roughing it have plenty of destinations to park an RV. Or you could really go old school and pitch a tent at a campground in the national park.
