With summer just around the corner, many folks don’t want to spend their Pigeon Forge vacations cooped up inside their cabins or in a shopping mall. The warm temperatures and sunshine encourage everyone to get outside and spend some time in the great outdoors…and what better place than the Great Smoky Mountains? Whether it’s spring break or summer vacation for the kids, there are dozens of family-friendly and fun outdoor activities to participate in on this year’s Pigeon Forge vacation.
Your cabin may be loaded with amenities such as game tables, home theaters, big screen televisions and more, but save that for the nighttime! Get out and spend your days exploring the down, working on your tan and letting the children wear themselves out so you can enjoy a quiet evening in your Pigeon Forge cabin rental.
While white-water rafting may not be suited for your small children, riding an intertube down Little Pigeon River is peaceful and fun for the whole family. The crystal clear water is renowned for its fantastic scenery, where you can often see ducks on the water and even deer along the riverbanks! Check our River Rage Tubing (http://www.riverragetubing.com/index.html) where you can enjoy private river access, three river routes, custom tube sizes and more! Park your car, and enjoy an all-day trip with free shuttle service and even some Little River Barbeque when the hunger pangs strike!
Enjoy a day in the sunshine with your family and take a little trip to Patriot Park. Home to many treasured Pigeon Forge events, such as the 4th of July celebration and Veteran’s Day gatherings, Patriot Park is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon when not packed with Pigeon Forge visitors. Located next to The Old Mill Restaurant and right next to the river, Patriot Park is a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet picnic with your family. Pack up some subs, bring a Frisbee and settle under the gazebo for a tasty lunch. Save some of your bread to feed the ducks and walk off your meal on the walking track surrounding the park.
For the thrill seeker in your family, head to The Track for some exciting outdoor go-kart fun. The three story, spiraling wooden track is a little adrenaline rush for everyone in your family. The Track offers Kiddie Karts and Rookie Karts for the younger children – you only have to be three feet tall to drive! With single and double seater go-karts, everyone in your family can get in on the fun.
The Track also offers water bumper-boat rides to cool off in the summer heat! Equipped with blaster cannons, you and your family can make a game of having an exciting and refreshing water battle. What better summer activity could you think of?
