Pigeon Forge Cabins: Capping off Your Smoky Mountain Getaway   by Darren King

With so many vacation destinations to choose from in America, a holiday locale usually has to offer a unique combination of recreational appeal to emerge as a true "superstar" on the vacation destination scene. This recreational appeal is usually a result of several complimentary factors, including: picturesque natural terrain (mountain vistas, lakefront property, etc...), major resort city attractions (theme parks, live entertainment, etc...), and outdoor recreation highlights (hiking trails, boating/fishing access, etc...). The Smoky Mountains of Tennessee is a region that certainly fits the bill. The greater Smoky Mountains area offers vacationers a combination of holiday highlights to fill a vacation with world-class relaxation, inspiration and entertainment.

The first of the key elements in a top notch vacation destination is scenic value. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park certainly has plenty of astounding vistas to meet this requirement. The Appalachian splendor of the Smoky Mountains region is truly world renowned. This is especially the case in the Autumn- when the Tennessee hillside is lit up in a hundred fiery shades. It's not surprising that the months of August to November serve as the most popular for Smoky Mountain vacationers. The intensity of autumnal flare on display during the fall months in the Smokies is something that has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.

The second of the key elements for top vacation destinations is resort city attractions. The Smoky Mountains region certainly has no problem fitting this bill as well. The East Tennessee cities of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are famous in their own right- offering a compelling blend of recreational appeal for area visitors to enjoy. Some of the area's most popular attractions include: Dollywood, Boyd's Bear Country and the Country Tonight Theatre in Pigeon Forge, and the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort, Camp Thunder and the Ripley's Believe it or not Museum in Gatlinburg. And these few attractions are just a sampling of literally hundreds of exciting rides and entertaining live theatre highlights offered in the area.

The third of the essential aspects of a world-class vacation destination is outdoor recreational appeal. Again, the Smoky Mountains region can divvy this out in spades! The Great Smoky Mountains National Park itself offers a multitude of hiking and walking trails (designed for a full spectrum of skill level). Cades Cove and places like the Little Pigeon River are also popular spots for fishing, kayaking and white water rafting adventures. In addition locations like Clingman's Dome, found at the end of the picturesque Newfound Gap road offer breathtaking views of the surrounding Appalachian glory. From the top of Clingman's Dome Smoky Mountain vacationers can actually see the terrain of several states stretching out into the distance.

A vacation destination needs to meet each of these requirements in order to fall into the elite category. There are only a handful of "holiday hot spots" that can offer not one or two, but all three of these recreational categories. In addition to meeting each of these requirements, the Smoky Mountains region offers one more aspect that is highly valued by area visitors. The area features a brand of mountain log cabin rentals that stand out in their unique appeal as vacation rentals. The best of these Smoky Mountain cabins offer lodging luxury, outstanding Appalachian views as well quick and easy access to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the local city stars of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
