1. Budget

The most important part of vacation planning is setting a reasonable budget. Your budget should be set for an amount that will cover everything that you will spend money on during your vacation: gas, plane tickets, groceries, eating out, lodging, entertainment, souvenirs, etc. Once you’ve figured out how much you want to spend on your trip, you can stop thinking about money and just enjoy your time in the Smokies.

2. Accommodations

4. Disconnect

Vacation is a time to disconnect from everyday life and relax. Leave the stress of work at work, and enjoy the people you are with. Try to avoid talking about work and focus on having fun.

5. Activities

Family having fun

When choosing vacation activities, try to pick something that your whole group will enjoy. A trip to Dollywood or Ober Gatlinburg are always good choices because there is so much going on at each location. Don’t forget, there are plenty of things to do in your cabin too! With firepits, hot tubs, theater rooms, arcade games, and more, you’ll never be bored during your vacation in Pigeon Forge.
