As the spring season has just barely started we could not be more excited for summer to eventually come. The start to everyone’s summer plans usually begins with Memorial Day. This annual holiday is the perfect excuse to get out and see Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas in person. Gatlinburg offers plenty of exciting activities that will make your trip one to never forget. Take a look why you should enjoy a Gatlinburg Memorial Day:
Visit SkyLift Park
Gatlinburg is home to many different attractions with one of the most popular being SkyLift Park. This aerial park is located up at the top of Anakeesta Mountain that is 1,800 feet over the rest of the area. Getting there might sound hard at first but is actually extremely easy to do! Simply hop on the SkyLift lift located in downtown Gatlinburg that will take you on one of the biggest trams in the entire country. Once you are inside the park you will find other incredible attractions such as the SkyBridge, the longest pedestrian bridge; there are even glass tiles in the bridge near the middle so you can look down as you cross! This adventure park is a must see for any first timers in Gatlinburg!
Hit the Trails
Memorial Day often marks the start of summer vacation so make sure to get outside and hit the trails around Gatlinburg. We are located right on the Great Smoky Mountain National Park where you can find over 800 miles of incredible trails. The park is big enough to feature a variety of difficulty levels from trails that are perfect for children to more advanced hikes. Some popular trails in the park include Laurel Falls that is on the easier side with its paved trail and Charlies Bunion that offers a bigger challenged for experienced hikers. You can also cool off in the park with a white water rafting excursion down the river. Trying white water rafting around Memorial Day is a great time before the busier travel season of summer is here.
