Distance learning can be difficult for children who want to run around with their friends outside. Luckily, attending school from home allows families to still go on their vacation getaways as long as they have access to Wi-Fi. You can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi access in our Gatlinburg vacation rentals, and you will also be close to many educational attractions in the area. Take a look at how you can enjoy these educational activities on your journey to Gatlinburg after online learning is done:

There is nothing better for ocean lovers than visiting your local aquarium. Gatlinburg is home to the ever-popular Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
