Look Forward to 2021 Spring Fun in the Great Smoky Mountains

Looking forward to the day when wildflowers blossom, the weather refreshes, and the sun warms again? Spring is just around the corner, and we can’t wait! Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, is bursting with anticipation for the beautiful Springfest of 2021. It’s almost time for a nice stroll through the national park, attraction hopping along the Parkway with friends, neat annual events to begin, and the stunning springtime views at your cabin rental to break free! If you’re ready to get outside or just get away this March, April, or May, start planning your memorable trip to the Great Smoky Mountains today — we’ll help.

Wildflowers in the National Park

Blossoms dot the landscape, baby animals (including black bear cubs) emerge adorably, waterfalls surge, and spring showers make the grass green again when spring hits the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the most visited national park in the country, it’s number one on our list of fun things to do this spring! 

So, pack your hiking boots and raincoat and get ready to explore 800+ miles of hiking trails flourishing with new bulbs and enchanting blooms. Of course, there’s also horseback riding, cycling, scenic drives through Cades Coves and along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, fishing, and picnic spots beside refreshing rivers. The majestic wilds of the Smoky Mountains offer plenty of ways to help you reconnect with nature.
