If you have ever been to the Smokies, you know how relaxing it can be. This is the perfect vacation destination to get away and leave all your worries behind. As you soak in the gorgeous natural scenery, your mind and body will become at ease. While just being in the mountains is soothing, there are some extra ways to head back home feeling completely refreshed. Here are 4 of the best ways to relax during your vacation in the Smoky Mountains:

1. Get a Massage

Massages are a great way to forget about the troubles in your life. As you lay back and enjoy the experience, you can let go of all your worries and stresses. After your massage, you will feel completely rejuvenated and will be ready to explore the Smokies. For the best massage treatment, we recommend Restorative Massage of the Smokies . They offer a variety of different package options, and they even have mobile massages that you can get in your cabin! As an added bonus, all of our guests receive a 20% discount on all massage packages.

Gatlinburg Space Needle

There are a couple of attractions in Gatlinburg that offer indescribable views of the Smoky Mountains. The Gatlinburg Space Needle is a marvelous place to visit, as it stands 407 feet high above downtown Gatlinburg. From the observation deck, you can see dozens of different mountain ranges and learn about them with the help of Higher Learning Exhibits. In addition, you will get a bird’s eye view of the action happening along the Parkway. For another relaxing experience, sit in a rocking chair located on the SkyDeck at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park .This spot will present you with a panoramic view of the SkyBridge and the Smoky Mountains.

3. Take a Hike in the Mountains

One of the best ways to relax during your vacation in the Smoky Mountains is by exploring the natural scenery.
