Located just 27 miles from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Cades Cove is a scenic valley in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Home to beautiful mountains and abundant wildlife, it’s a great place to visit if you want to hike, bike, horseback ride, camp, or sample some local history. The Cove contains historic buildings harkening back to the first European settlements in the early 19th century. The area is also known as an old Cherokee hunting ground.
Going to the Smoky Mountains has never been less expensive. There are several things that you can do with your family that can save you money. When you go out to eat, try to find a restaurant that has a buffet. You will only pay one price for your meal, and you can get as much to eat as you want.
Arguably, the worst and most frustrating part of any vacation comes before the actual trip is taken. Preparing - and packing - for the trip can be stressful, confusing, and even sometimes downright awful. The worry of forgetting something, that no outfit will work for a specific situation, or that the clothing and shoes brought will be uncomfortable and inappropriate are all fears that many people have, and rightly so. There are ways to skip all of these problems and pack for vacation without stress, so that they can concentrate on the destination - especially if it is to a beautiful location like cabins in Pigeon Forge.
