As summer comes to an end, a long weekend getaway may be just what the family needs! And what better time to visit than for the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st? This once in a lifetime event is the perfect time to come to Pigeon Forge to unwind and make new memories.
A weekend of quality family time (and one away from all distractions and routines) will have you geared up for back to school and the fall season ahead. Check out this family-friendly itinerary for a long weekend getaway.
After you arrive in town and get checked in to your lodging for the weekend, spending the evening at the Island is the perfect way to get the vacation started! The kids can play in Arcade City, take on the challenge of the Island Ropes Course, or have some fun in the Island Bumper Cars. The adults can hang out in the rocking chairs by the Island Fountains or on the back patio of Ole Smoky Moonshine and listen to the bluegrass music. Before you leave, take a family ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel and enjoy the nighttime view of the Parkway.
If you don’t have to rush out of town your final day, do a little shopping at Stages West or at the Incredible Christmas Place. Maybe even enjoy a late breakfast at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen before heading out. The kids will be full and will be ready to nap on the ride home.
Before summer ends, before school routines start back up, and before fall moves in, unwind and recharge with your family in Pigeon Forge, the Center of Fun in the Smokies!
