Attracting over 11 million visitors each year, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee is one of the top family vacation spots in the country. With incredible natural beauty and dozens of world class attractions, the Smoky Mountain area is always a hit with children. If you’re bringing your little ones to the Smokies, check out these six tips for a fantastic kid-friendly Pigeon Forge cabin vacation at Timber Tops.
1. Choose a Cabin with a Pool
Several of our cabins have the added luxury of a large indoor heated swimming pool. These cabins are always a favorite for visitors who are traveling with children. Your kids will love having their own private pool for swimming, splashing, racing, and playing Marco Polo. In-cabin pools are especially popular on rainy days!
2. Visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Many of our cabins are located near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the most visited national park in America, the Smokies offer endless outdoor activities for children. There are a number of kid-friendly ranger programs available, and you will have the opportunity to see nature at its best from the park’s many hiking, biking, and driving trails. Be sure to bring your camera so you can take photos of the deer, elk, black bears, and other spectacular wildlife in the area.
You can introduce your children to some new activities and some old favorites when you choose a cabin with a game room. Have a billiards, air hockey, or foosball tournament with the whole family for hours of fun. Our Pigeon Forge cabins with arcade games feature vintage video game machines equipped with Pacman, Frogger, Space Invaders, and other classics. Teach your kids the finer points of Donkey Kong, or let them school you with a few games on the PlayStation 2.
4. Head Out to Local Activities
Regardless of the time of year that you choose to visit the Smokies, you are sure to find special kid-friendly events underway. The popular Dollywood theme park hosts a variety of themed festivals including the Festival of Nations, Barbeque & Bluegrass, Great American Summer, Rock the Smokies, National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration, and Smoky Mountain Christmas. In addition, Pigeon Forge is home to a great collection of dinner theaters, zipline courses, whitewater rafting companies, and many more fantastic attractions.
5. Bring Your Favorite Movies
Nothing can make your children happier than watching cartoons or a movie before it’s time for bed. Choose one of our cabins with a home theater room, and your family can experience their favorite movies like never before. Guests can expect a huge screen with surround sound and authentic movie seating. Don’t forget to make a big batch of popcorn!
Enjoy the pure mountain air while you play a game of catch in the yard around your cabin, or take a stroll through the nearby woods. Nights are great for sitting around the fire pit sharing stories and toasting marshmallows or cooking up some burgers and hot dogs on the grill. Parents can enjoy some time together in the hot tub after the children have gone to sleep.
