School Will Start Soon but You Still Have Time for One Last Family Vacation

Ah, back-to-school season. You’ve enjoyed the flexibility of having your kids out of school, like when later drop-offs at day camp mean you all get a few more precious minutes of sleep, or you can sneak away for an afternoon and take everyone out for ice cream. Seeing an older kid tackle a first or second summer job is pretty rewarding, too. With fall just around the corner, though, all good things must come to an end. But do they have to come to an end right away?

Take a Last-Minute Family Vacation

Whichever specific ways you decide to squeeze the most fun out of the season, the best way to avoid regret in the cooler seasons is to take advantage of all you can do when it’s warmer out. A last-minute family vacation is the perfect way to cram in as much sunshine as you can before the seasons change, and what better place to do so than the Smoky Mountains?

America’s most-visited national park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is popular for good reason: it’s full of unbeatable hiking, biking, fishing, and exploring opportunities that will give the whole family a chance to spend the days outdoors. And after days outdoors, what families wouldn’t love coming home to cabins in the Smokies?

Cabins in the Smokies Make Great Last-Minute Vacation Destinations

Families have booked cabins in Pigeon Forge and nearby areas in late summer for generations, and for good reason. Cabins in the Smokies are some of the best places anyone could be this time of the year, when the sun is warm, the fish are biting, and the crowds have diminished, but there’s still plenty of summer fun to be had. These aren’t glorified tents, either – after a day on the hiking trail or at nearby Dollywood, what could be better than coming back to an air-conditioned cabin, with King-size beds, comfy furniture, and a fully-equipped kitchen?

Enjoy Summer’s End at Dancing Bear Lodge

Curious about cabins in Pigeon Forge, but not sure if one is right for you? Take a look at the newly-renovated Dancing Bear Lodge, a 3 BR/3 BA cabin with 2 King-size beds and 1 full-size bed, satellite TV, an outdoor hot tub, a foosball table, two outdoor porches (one of which is covered), a separate master bath, a floor-to-ceiling, stacked-stone gas fireplace, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen with a kitchen island perfect for cooking and chatting. Pets are allowed too, just in case your dog-sitter is off on a last-minute summer vacation of their own!
