Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg Things To Do?

My family and I are renting a cabin for Christmas in Smokey Mountain Ridge- Wears Valley. We will be there Christmas Eve through the weekend... my girlfriend has never seen snow and that is a high priority to find...

I was just reading about Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Any other ideas?

Would it be worth it to haul my rig up there or any wheeling??

Meh, I understand Tellico's closed, and that's a little bit of a haul from Seveir County. Lots, and I mean LOTS of logging trails in that area, plus the TVA lakes are down, which is fun for mudding. I spent my latter teenage years working at Dollywood, and if I remember right, Seymour had a fun spot or two. Sorry that I can't be more specific, but your rig in the SMNP will be fun. Get with a ranger.

Thanks for the info...

Anyone else local to there??

It would be quite a hassle to bring my rig with me, but if its worth it I will. Not looking for hardcore wheeling but scenic trails instead.

floyd paterson or petersons muscle car museum has a shit load of super nice 70s muscle its worth it christmas is the worst time to go the whole place is packed. there is a ripleys aquarium but its a rip off imo. theres a big smoky mountain knife works store and a reptile museum that is across the four lane from the walmart that does a show every hour but pretty much everything else is overpriced or closed for winter. oh yeah there is a nascar speedpark where you can ride go karts for 50 dollars all day but id say it closes for winter too. if your leaving anytime soon be careful we are in the middle of a bad ice storm. up to an inch on the roads.

Thats where Im from. Check it out

East Tennessee and a good chance to see snow

The Great Smokey Mountains National Park http://www.nps.gov/grsm/index.htm
This is a great place to be in the mountains especially if you are taking your kids. If I were going here and you are driving I would take I-95 all the way up the coast until you reach I-26 in Georgia. Follow that to Ashville, NC. From Ashville North Carolina go to Maggie Valley NC http://www.maggievalley.org/ Take the road straight through town and you will end up in Cherokee, NC. This is home of the Cherokee Indians and a great place to learn about the Indian culture. From Cherokee, NC http://www.cherokeesmokies.com/ follow the road through town and go up into the Smokey Mountains National Park. (Both Maggie Valley and Cherokee are 1 day trips. Meaning you can see or do both of them in 1 day unless you are really interested).

Once you have reach the top of the mountain you are about 30 minutes from Gatlinburg, TN and a must see! I would almost even skip the above just to go to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN. http://www.eventsgatlinburg.com/ and http://www.gatlinburg.com/things-to-do/ You will not regret going here. I love this place. This is where I grew up as a kid and where I got married. Its beautiful. You can ride a tram to the top of the mountain and snow ski, ice skate or shop at the mall. They make fake snow so your kids will love it. You have to include Pigeon Forge as well. http://www.mypigeonforge.com/ Pigeon Forge is at the bottom of the mountain from Gatlinburg. It is 15 minutes drive at most. It is a HUGE shopping and kids town. http://www.mypigeonforge.com/what_to_do.aspx There are go cart tracks, tons of shopping, rides, Dollywood http://www.dollywood.com/ (kind of like Disney or Universal only country). You better plan on several days at these two places. You wont want to leave.

To reach Ashville, NC it takes me about 6.5 hrs and to Gatlinburg about 7.5-8 depending on how much we stop and how fast we drive. You can also not drive up the mountain to get there quicker.

I need to check the regional posts more often. I wish I would have seen it in time for your visit. There are a lot of good places to wheel around here if you ever come back up let me know. There is a local Wrangler club and we would love to have you ride with us. Hope you liked the mountains!!
