Summer Activities in the Smoky Mountains
Whether you're taking a family vacation in Gatlinburg over summer break or escaping for a romantic retreat, there are so many summer activities in the Smoky Mountains, it's hard to know where to start.
Snap a Wild West portrait at the Old Tyme Photo, or shoot the rapids on a whitewater rafting trip down the Upper Pigeon River. Experience extreme waterslides at Dollywood's Splash Country, or ride an Alpine Slide down the mountain at Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park.
Delight in the beauty of nature while hiking trails through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most popular National Park in America. Then, discover the wonders of undersea life at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies on a fun and educational trip to one of the top-rated aquariums in the country.
Travel to the top of the 400-foot Gatlinburg Space Needle for a 360-degree view of the Smokies, or climb aboard a glass gondola for panoramic views from 200 feet on the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel in Pigeon Forge.
Whatever you choose to do on your summer vacation in the Smoky Mountains, you can relax in comfort at the end of the day in a luxury condo or spacious cabin from Wyndham Vacation Rentals.
