3 Things You Need to Know to Create a Worry-Free Vacation to the Smoky Mountains

Jan 22, 2014

What’s so wonderful about the Great Smoky Mountains is that their beauty remains the same throughout each season. Whether you’re looking to escape during the summer months, or you want to see the frosted treetops during the winter, the Smoky Mountains offer a relaxing getaway every time of year. To make the most of your vacation to Gatlinburg, use these 3 tips to help you plan your trip:

Pack Light

Remember, at Parkside Cabin Rentals, all of the cabins come fully equipped, including a washer and dryer. For your stay, all you need to do is bring a little laundry detergent and you’ll be ready to go! When you pack lighter, you can wash the clothes during your trip and you won’t have to worry about having outfits specifically planned for each day.

Plan Meals

Planning a vacation isn’t always easy, but our Gatlinburg cabin rentals come equipped with a full kitchen to make your meal-planning a little less difficult. Instead of eating out for each meal, you can take advantage of the kitchen to prepare home-cooked meals. This will save you quite a bit of money, too! Go ahead and plan your meals before you arrive to the Smoky Mountains, so you know exactly which items will need to be purchased when you arrive to Gatlinburg. Save yourself some time by packing any non-perishable items in your vehicle. If you are only a short distance from the Smokies, you can likely pack everything and not have to worry about the grocery store when you get here. If you don’t want to pack things with you, and you don’t want to grocery shop, we have a solution for that, too! Take a look at Smoky Mountain Grocery who does all of the shopping for you and delivers the groceries right to your cabin!

Remember to Pack Games and Movies

Some of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals come with a game room, perfect for challenging friends and family to a little competition. Although, it’s always fun to bring along your favorite games and movies to really enjoy your vacation. Spend an evening (or two!) in the cabin and sit back to watch a movie and eat some popcorn, or set up a puzzle or board game for the night. For parents, you can even buy a new game or movie and hide it away for your vacation. When you decide to spend a night in-cabin, unpack the new item and enjoy!
