When you’re planning a trip for yourself or for the whole family, it can seem like an overwhelming task, but we put together a little list to help make the process smoother and simpler for you. Follow these steps and you will enjoy the perfect Smoky Mountain getaway next time you’re in town!
- Choose Your Dates and Get a Head Count
The first thing you’ll want to know when planning your next trip to the Smoky Mountains is the date that you’ll be able to join us. You can even pick a few and explore lodging options to see which one has the best options for your party in terms of cabins or hotel availability. Give yourself plenty of time to plan so we recommend planning at least 1-2 months in advance and more if you can manage it. Last minute trips can be super fun, but you may not be able to find the lodging option you prefer, especially during the busiest times of year.
- Choose Your Lodging
Once you know when you’re traveling and how many are in your party, you can begin considering lodging options. Cabins are a great option if you have a bit more budget to spend and want a more homey feeling to your accommodations. If you will be spending very little time where you’re staying, hotels are a great pick because they offer full cleaning every day as well as everything you need to enjoy your stay in the Smokies.
- Create a Travel Itinerary
The final step after you have your lodging booked is to create a travel itinerary with activities that you want to do each day and restaurants to visit. This just helps your trip run more smoothly because you’ll know exactly what to do while you’re in town instead of scrambling at the last minute to figure out what you want to do.
