Spring break varies depending on a few things. Colleges have different weeks for their spring breaks, elementary through high schools also have a spring vacation period, and some people just like to experience one or more weeks of spring in another part of the country. For instance, someone in a northern climate might depart the area in March to see the arrival of spring somewhere far south of their home.
This is why spring break is a season from early March to the middle of April each year, and regardless of when your spring break occurs, you’ll want to plan a visit to the Smokies and attractions in Pigeon Forge.
Why? There really is nothing like the arrival of spring in this truly stunning part of the world, and with the option to stay in Pigeon Forge cabins, you’ll get an authentic experience of spring like no other.
Attractions In Pigeon Forge and Spring Activities in the Smokies
This region takes its name from the Smoky Mountains (one of the main attractions in Pigeon Forge), and as you might imagine, they are a wonderful spot to visit in the spring. After all, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is open year-round for free, and you can easily dedicate your entire spring break to taking the different scenic drives, enjoying some of the finest trails, and seeking out the many seasonal events. Waterfalls come back to life as the snows in the mountains melt, delicate flowers and beautiful mountain shrubs (azaleas, rhododendrons and mountain laurel) show off their blooms, and wildlife emerges.
Yet, outside of the park are many attractions in Pigeon Forge and outdoor activities to enjoy in the spring. You can enjoy everything from the alpine slides and mountain coasters to the canopy and zipline activities. Days of shopping and dining in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are always enjoyable, and exploring the different museums and attractions will be a memorable experience, too.
Affordable, Luxurious and Comfortable Pigeon Forge Cabins
Of course, one of the great features of a spring break in the Smokies is that you don’t have to deal with the summer crowds. Though you will see many fellow travelers in the region, you can enjoy peaceful evenings and mornings thanks to the Pigeon Forge cabins so readily available.
Whether you find a standalone cabin or book your stay in one of the appealing resort communities, renting Pigeon Forge cabins brings lots of benefits. First, they are private. Next, most feature porches that gaze out into the gorgeous spring scenery, including some with views directly into the Park.
The cabins can help you save a lot of money by providing you with a full-sized kitchen, loads of entertainment (think pool tables, home theaters, hot tubs, game rooms and more), and can be shared by a group. There are certainly the ultra-romantic, one bedroom options, but you can also find cabins large enough for groups of 14 to 30!
If you want an unforgettable spring break, make your plans to visit the Smokies and be sure to grab one of the charming and cozy cabins from Alpine Mountain Chalets as your home away from home.
