Smoky Mountain High
There's plenty of adventure to be found in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains forest and river landscapes. You can raft down the Pigeon River rapids which dip and splash through the Cherokee National Forest. In the midst of the Smoky Mountains there are so many opportunities to hike, fish, and explore. The Smoky Mountains visitor Center is just a few minutes drive and offers a museum and a multitude of ideas for day hikes, bike riding and more.
In nearby Gatlinburg you can enjoy Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum, Putt-Putt Golf, and wonderful dining experiences! Just a few minutes away Pigeon Forge offers Dollywood, Dolly Parton's smoky mountain theme park and water park.
Outlet malls galore also await you in Pigeon Forge, with the Five Oaks, Red Roof and Tanger outlet malls filled with brand-name manufacturer and designer outlet stores. There are great bargains at Banana Republic, Coach, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and more.
For the real adventurist, how about a drive to Knoxville, where you can see the University of Tennessee Volunteers football game, or hop on the Three Rivers Rambler, a vintage steam train that puffs and toots its way for 90 minutes through beautiful countryside to Forks of the River and back.
And when you are done exploring the mountains, hiking and shopping you can come back to your mountain getaway cabin, Smoky Mountain High. This beautiful log cabin is just 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and 15 minutes drive to Pigeon Forge and is conveniently located in Gatlinburg's premier log home community, Black Bear Falls. Relax in front of the stone fireplace and enjoy the warm wood finishes and tasteful decor. Take a dip in the Black Bear Falls pool in summer, challenge friends and family to a game of pool or simply kick back in your bubbling hot tub while enjoying the great Smoky Mountain view. Settle the kids in with their favorite movie on DVD and enjoy the sunset from the rockers on the deck. Whatever your plans, be sure to reserve Smoky Mountain High for your vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains.
