Jar filled with coins labeled "Vacation"

After spending money on Thanksgiving and preparing for Christmas, vacationing can be a challenge this time of year. For those who want to pack up for a winter trip but worry about money, Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals has tips for ways to save money in Pigeon Forge. Here are our four ways to save when you visit the Smoky Mountains.

1. Make a Checklist

Unlike Santa, after making a list and checking it twice, check it again. If you get to your cabin and realize you forgot a phone charger or batteries, you’ll have to spend money to replace it during your stay.

2. Go Sightseeing

The Smokies are filled with fun attractions for the entire family. No matter how long you stay, you can’t see it all, but make sure to add the Smoky Mountains National Park to your to-do list. Entrance is free, and you can see historic buildings, waterfalls and wildlife. During the holiday season, there are also tons of lights to see just by driving on the parkway. Everywhere you turn this time of year, you’ll see holiday themed decorations to enjoy.

3. Dine In

You can save serious cash by taking groceries to your cabin. Our cabins are furnished, so you have all the pot, pans and dishes you’ll need to whip up a family meal. One of the biggest expenses during a vacation is food, but, by planning meals to eat out and dine in, you can save money and enjoy family time.

4. Be Flexible

Some entertainment and attractions have specials, so, if you find one that is discounted, consider replacing that on your to-do list. Everything in the Smokies is fun, so you’ll not be disappointed no matter what your family chooses. Make sure to stop at a Welcome Center. Coupon books are great ways to save money in Pigeon Forge, and travel guides can make the trip easier as well.

An extra tip is to stay in one of our cabins in Pigeon Forge. They are fully-furnished, so you’ll save money and have a homey place to rest and relax. If you’re ready to begin planning a Pigeon Forge adventure, give our friendly and knowledgeable staff a call at 1-800-266-1066. They can answer questions and give you more information.
