Here's a suggestion for the ideal one-two combo this summer—an activity plan that will let you get outside, have fun with the whole family and stay cool while you're doing it. First, spend a morning with us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. Our Pigeon Forge canopy tours will provide you and your gang with hours of excitement in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Located in a hillside ravine setting, our zipline experience offers 360-degree scenic beauty, complete with abundant views and peaceful wooded terrain. Our canopy tour offers you 14 different zipline runs that will thrill while keeping you cool as you fly through the air like a breeze. And visiting in the morning will help you beat the worst of the daytime temperatures.
When afternoon rolls around, you can challenge the heat head-on by making a short drive to Townsend, TN (there's a back route from our zipline course that will take you right there) and doing some inner tubing in the tranquil Little River. You'll find a couple of tubing outposts in town that will allow you to float cool, scenic stretches of the river for a very modest price. All you have to do is kick back in your tube, shove out into the stream and let the refreshing, brisk waters of the Little River give that scorcher of a summer afternoon the beatdown.
