Blog posts for March 2016
Last week, we helped kick off the 2016 season in the Smokies by sharing several previews of what's in store at all the music theaters in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville. We started out with thumbnail descriptions of several Pigeon Forge theaters in particular, and this week, Smoky Mountain Ziplines will help you sift through a few more.
Folks visiting the Smokies have a lot of choices when it comes to entertainment, and over the past 20 years or so, few destinations have been as popular as music theaters. Similar to Branson, Missouri, Pigeon Forge has quite a few venues that are home to a wide variety of stage productions, and even Gatlinburg and Sevierville contribute to the mix with theaters of their own.
It seems like it's been a long time coming, but spring is finally on our doorstep in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Last weekend, we set our clocks ahead, giving us more daylight at the end of the day to enjoy outdoor activities, and nature is doing its part in the form of warmer days, budding trees and shrubs, and colorful flowers emerging from the ground after a long winter's sleep. And to make everything official according to the calendar, spring arrives in less than a week on March 21.
In the 30 years that it's been in operation, Dollywood in Pigeon Forge has almost become synonymous with a Great Smoky Mountains vacation. Ms. Parton opened the park in her name in 1986, and ever since, it has become one of the top tourist destinations in the region, not including the national park itself. With 35 acres of rides, attractions, shows, shops and eateries, Dollywood is everything that's great about a family vacation, all wrapped up in one scenic package.
We're getting close to our opening date here at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge. But in the meantime, we thought we'd whet your appetite with some news about some other cool zipline attractions around the world that are either newly up and running or are in the planning phases.
