There are several convenient grocery stores in the area so that you can easily pick up a carton of eggs and get started with your kit. Enjoy your delicious hard boiled eggs throughout your vacation, but be sure to leave one out for the Easter bunny!

2. Have an Easter Egg Hunttwo children sitting on the grass looking at Easter eggs

Another fun way to celebrate Easter in Gatlinburg TN is to have an Easter egg hunt with plastic eggs in your cabin! Stuff the eggs with all types of surprises and let your kids have a blast searching for them throughout the cabin. Just don’t forget where you put them all in case you hid them too well! This can be a fun activity for your first full day of vacation so that the kids can learn the layout of the cabin. Put a few in the game room, hide some in the closet or sneak one under their bed!

3. Hop Along the Bunny Trail

While staying in our cabins in Gatlinburg, TN, take the kids out for a hop along the bunny trail. Of course, we are referring to one of the kid friendly hikes at Great Smoky Mountains National Park ! If you are lucky, you might just spot a bunny or one of the many other critters that roam the Smokies. Be sure to bring a camera because you never know what you might see! The weather around Easter is normally delightful in the Gatlinburg region, so this is a great time to explore the park’s blooming wildflowers and appreciate the best of the great outdoors.
