Day 1

After a comfortable night’s sleep in your home away from home, the whole family will be ready to stretch their legs and discover the fun that awaits along the Parkway. Guaranteed to make lasting memories on your spring break getaway.
There are plenty of restaurants, shops and more than enough attractions to keep you busy for the entire day. From museums like the Titanic Museum Attraction and Hollywood Wax Museum, to extreme adventures like Flyaway Indoor Skydiving and The Island Ropes Course, there really is something for everyone, all right here.

Day 2

Scope out the schedules and book some family time together at a show. Younger kids love the Comedy Barn show, and The Grand Majestic Dinner Theatre’s three shows in rotation are sure to be a crowd pleaser. If you’ve got animal lovers in your crew, you won’t want to miss Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Come early to meet and greet horses and enjoy live music. Then, eat a classic four-course meal while being amazed at the main event of 32 horses and professional trick riders!

Day 3

You’ve been admiring them in the distance for a few days, so now’s the time to venture into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Do some research ahead of time to plan the perfect day for your family. There are hikes available for every age and ability, with some even taking you to a waterfall! Alternatively, Cades Cove is famous for its vistas and housing the largest variety of historic buildings. Plan to take a leisurely drive around Cades Cove Loop Road. Pack a picnic lunch — it won’t be hard to find the perfect spot to enjoy it.
