Beat the Heat
Sometimes in the Smoky Mountains, the heat can seem to limit the outdoor activities that you can do, but there are actually a lot of ways to beat the heat when you visit this summer. For example, plan to spend some time splashing around in the water – whether at a mountain stream, a waterpark, or a pool. Make sure to stay hydrated and maybe bring a spray bottle that you can use to keep cool. There are also so many indoor activities to choose from if you find that you really need to get out of the heat for a while!
Make Time for Traffic and Crowds
The summer is definitely one of the most popular times to visit Sevierville and the Smoky Mountains, and we want to make sure you have the best time possible. If you can, plan most of your travel for early in the morning or in the evening as midday usually is the time which has the most traffic delays. As long as you prepare properly, you can minimize the amount of time that you spend waiting in lines and in traffic.
Find Interesting Ways to Enjoy the Sunshine
Get out into nature and enjoy the sunlight either by exploring Great Smoky Mountains National Park or finding a pool to dip in for a while. You can also go shopping for the day at Tanger Outlets in Sevierville to enjoy some sunshine while you shop for your favorite items. Outdoor activities such as ziplining, mini golf, go kart riding, and more are great options that the whole family will enjoy.
