The Fourth of July weekend is coming up, which means it's time to celebrate not just the independence of our nation but also your own personal independence. That means not settling for the same old attractions and vacation activities that you've been doing for years. It's time to make your declaration of independence and try something new and different by taking a zipline adventure in the Smoky Mountains.
Some people just feel the need—the need for speed, as they said so famously in the movie Top Gun. If your idea of fun is all about fast-paced action, then Pigeon Forge has several options for you. The Parkway is home to several amusement providers with go-cart tracks, where you can burn rubber speeding around hairpin turns. Other attractions offer bungee jumping, allowing you to build up a little freefall speed as you plummet from dizzying heights. There's also an indoor skydiving attraction where you're actually motionless but suspended in mid-air on a column of wind air generated by a giant propeller underneath the wire mesh floor. It simulates the sensation of a real high-altitude freefall.
We've finally gotten a break from the heat here in East Tennessee. That means if you're headed to the mountains any time this week, you need to shuffle those outdoor fun activities to the top of your list of vacation priorities! One thing we can always recommend is taking an excursion into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Especially in the middle of the week, when tourism numbers a little lower than the weekend, it's a great time to get out on the trails and do some hiking or pitch a tent in one of the park's campgrounds. Don't forget to bring a fishing pole for some trout fishing and a camera for capturing images of all the great scenery. (Also don't forget that you'll need a fishing license if you plan to do some fishing.)
Looking for something to do next weekend that'll break you out of that vacation rut? If you're traveling in the Smokies the weekend of June 18, we've got some suggestions that'll let you experience some of the best entertainment and fun the area has to offer—and all of it with Smoky Mountain Flair.
There's no getting around it—hot weather has settled into to Tennessee, and it's not even officially summer yet! But don't let that deter you from having some outdoor fun when you're visiting the Smokies. In fact, ziplining is the ideal warm-weather outdoor activity. And when you're thinking zip line, Pigeon Forge, TN is the place to go—home of Smoky Mountain Ziplines.
