Top Four Relaxing Things to do in Gatlinburg

Blog Home : Category Posts : Top Four Relaxing Things to do in Gatlinburg

Experiencing everything Gatlinburg and the surrounding area have to offer is a fun time for everyone, which is why the Smokies rank as one of the best areas to vacation year after year. With attractions like Ober Gatlinburg, Dollywood, and more available, this isn't too surprising. However, what about when you want to simply relax? Luckily, you can have fun and relax too with our top four relaxing things to do in Gatlinburg.

Choosing What to Do on Vacation

Relaxation looks and feels different for everyone, which is why we're throwing out five completely different options designed to address a range of needs. Whether you need something to keep you active or you just need to stop, here are the top things to do in Gatlinburg that keep you relaxed.

Visit the Swimming Holes

When the weather's nice and the temperature is warm, nothing beats visiting one of the many swimming holes available in Gatlinburg and the surrounding area. Go for a swim in the Little Pigeon River or play under a waterfall with the massive Abrams Falls.

Alternatively, you can look into one of the many tubing or white water rafting companies to experience more of a thrill if you find swimming doesn't offer enough action for the group.

Hiking and Picnics

Even when relaxing, it's likely everyone wants to get up and move around. For those moments when you got to move, there are hundreds of trails to explore throughout the city of Gatlinburg.

Spend some time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or go for a hike along the river's shores we mentioned previously to experience more of nature's beauty. When it's time for a break, open up the picnic basket and enjoy some excellent food with family and friends.

Taste, Tour, and Taste Some More

When you need something that qualifies as a fun thing to do for adults, there's nothing like taking advantage of the many distilleries, wineries, and breweries available in the area. Most of these locations offer free tastings, guided tours, and best of all, more opportunities to taste the good stuff.

Some of the best places to visit while on your vacation include but aren't limited to the following:

  • Ole Smoky Moonshine
  • Sugarlands Distilling Co.
  • Smoky Mountain Winery
  • Tennessee Homemade Wines
  • Tennessee Cider Company
  • Smoky Mountain Brewery
  • Gatlinburg Brewing Company
  • And More!

Choose the Perfect Vacation Rental

For nothing less than pure relaxation, you can't go wrong with choosing the perfect vacation rental to suit your needs. When selecting your cabin, you'll want to pick one that offers what relaxes you and your group.

Do you want to soak after a fun-filled day in the Smokies? Then, you'll want a cabin with a hot tub. Do you have children with you? Make sure your rental offers a game room to keep them distracted while you enjoy a relaxing nap.

Best of all, the right kind of cabin makes it possible to recharge your batteries in-between having unlimited fun, so you get the best of both worlds in one vacation getaway.
