Now that spring is here, it's time to take full advantage of all that nature has to offer. Maybe your kids are out for the week on spring break, or maybe all you can do is a weekend getaway with the whole family. In either case, here's an idea for some specific things you can do with the kids to make the most out of your time in one of the most scenic, outdoorsy places in the country.
Start out your day with some zipline fun at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge, TN. We'll fill up your whole morning with an experience you won't forget, ziplining through our 14-line canopy course at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. We've got some long and high ziplines that will give you a nice perspective on your outdoor surroundings—the rolling, green, wooded foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Then after you zipline, Sevierville, TN is the place to go for the Field & Stream's Total Outdoor Kids' Challenge at Bass Pro Shops. Taking place this weekend, April 9 and 10 from noon to 3 p.m., the free event challenges kids to fun outdoor-themed activities like casting into fish buckets, archery, life jacket races and knot tying. Art activities and prizes are also on hand.
Of course, you'll want to complete your spring break or weekend with a trip into the national park, where hiking, fishing and camping are just a few of the ways to enjoy nature at its best.
