Plan A Budget-Friendly Vacation

At Pigeon Forge TN Cabins, we can understand how important saving money can be because of the economy today. That is why we want to help you get the spring or summer getaway to Pigeon Forge you have been dreaming about on a budget that will make you smile. You don’t have to sacrifice a great vacation (and a few splurges) just to have a vacation that meets your budget. Here are some of our tips for a wallet-friendly weekend in the Smokies!

Start off with a budget in mind.
You have to start strong and be consistent in saving and deciding how you are going to spend your money. There is a lot to do in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and you could end up spending more than you were planning. However, thinking a little bit outside the box (and planning ahead) could help you save a lot. There are plenty of free activities and events, as well as low-cost attractions, to enjoy in both towns. So avoid spending more than you have and set a budget ahead of time! Then go online and plan out a few things you definitely don’t want to miss. You can build the rest of your budget from there.

Rent a budget-friendly cabin.
Staying in a hotel can come out to be expensive depending on the location and amenities you are wanting. Our budget-friendly cabins offer much more than an ordinary hotel room. Many of them have hot tubs, fully-stocked kitchens, and pool tables, along with a view that could take your breath away. So why spend all the money on a one room hotel when you could have a private cabin to enjoy for under $100 a night!

Buy Groceries and Cook.
You probably don’t eat out every night at home because it is too expensive, so why eat out every night while on vacation? When you get to Pigeon Forge, stop at the local Walmart or grocery store and stock up for the time you will be there. Make a meal plan for the week and always pack snacks if you are going to be out on the town for a while. If you are just dying to get out and try the local food, take one night out of the week and splurge a little. This is another advantage of staying in a cabin with a fully-equipped kitchen. You have everything you need and more to prepare a delicious home cooked meal.

Pick one show or shows that let kids in free.
Pigeon Forge is definitely known for its shows and entertainment. So many, in fact, that if you went to one every night for a week you still would not be able to get to all of them. Going to every show during the week is not very budget-friendly. So get together with your family or friends and choose a show that you all agree on for one night. That way everyone is happy and you are still getting to enjoy the Pigeon Forge entertainment. Also, be sure to check online or ask around – some shows let kids in FREE!

Vacation is about getting away from the fast pace of life and enjoying the little things. So don’t feel like you can’t enjoy a great spring or summer vacation just because you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend this year. Come enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains while still keeping that budget-friendly mindset.
