1. Swimsuits and Sunscreen

The views that you will see while hiking the trails will take your breath away, and the many fun water attractions will be something the whole family will enjoy. You’ll have such a blast enjoying the great outdoors that you’ll easily spend all day having fun in the sun, and that’s why remembering to pack sunscreen is extremely important! Remember to apply sunscreen at the very beginning of the day and reapply often, and don’t forget to drink lots of water!

Don’t forget your swimsuits because our Pigeon Forge TN hotel offers indoor and outdoor water activities! Your kids will stay entertained for hours enjoying the outdoor pool and water park, and you will love floating in the indoor heated pool in the evenings! You’ll be in and out of the water so often that you might want to pack 2 or more swimsuits for each person!

2. Family Favorite Snacks

When you stay in our Pigeon Forge TN hotel, you will be conveniently located near dozens of delicious restaurants. We also provide a hot breakfast every morning to get your day started right. But when you just need a quick snack, you will love having a refrigerator and microwave in your hotel room! Be sure to pack all your family’s favorite snacks to enjoy in between meals, after a long swim in the pool, or for a midnight snack!

3. Comfortable Clothes and Shoes

The last thing you want is to have to end your day early because you’re uncomfortable in the wrong clothes or shoes, so be sure to pack all your most comfortable items! If you plan on hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, don’t forget your hiking boots! 

For daytime activities such as hiking, shopping, and sightseeing, we recommend tennis shoes or sports sandals. Lightweight t-shirts and jackets are a good idea as well because the mornings and nights can be chilly while the summer sun during the day can be quite hot! It’s also a good idea to prepare for rainy weather with rain jackets and boots.

If you plan to enjoy shows and dining out in the evening, consider packing something a bit nicer. It’s always fun to dress up for a night on the town!

4. Sense of Adventure

Last but definitely not least, in order to have the best vacation possible you will need to bring your sense of adventure! Our hotel is located near so many unique attractions, many of which require an adventurous spirit! Have you wondered what it would be like to see the world from a bird’s-eye view? Go soaring through the sky on a zipline adventure, and experience the mountains from up above! Have you daydreamed about petting penguins? Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies offers all sorts of fun animal attractions! Check out all the free attraction tickets available to you when you stay with us this summer!
