The last thing that should be on your mind as you’re trying to enjoy your vacation is how much it’s going to cost you. When you visit the Smokies, you can stay within your budget and maybe even save a little while you enjoy the trip of a lifetime. To help you get the most bang for your buck, here are some of the top ways to save on your Smoky Mountain vacation.
1. Make Travel Plans in Advance
Whether you’re planning to rent a vehicle or fly, it’s always cheaper for you to book your travel arrangements in advance. By doing this, you can potentially save hundreds of dollars for you and your family that can instead be used for fun activities while you’re in town. Not to mention, booking your transportation in advance will also save you lots of stress as the date for your trip gets closer.
2. Find Inexpensive and Free Things to Do
You don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive attractions to keep yourself and your family entertained when you visit the Smokies! There are numerous free things to do in Pigeon Forge and the surrounding areas. There are also inexpensive and free events that you can all attend at certain times throughout the year. When you stay with us, you can even take advantage of our Luxury Pass to receive free tickets to attractions.
3. Look for Discounts and Bundles
If you’re planning on visiting with a larger group of friends or family members, you’re in luck! There are plenty of attractions that offer discounts for groups over a certain number of people. Some attractions even partner with each other and offer bundles for multiple activities at reduced prices.
4. Ride the Trolley
You don’t have to worry about filling up the gas tank when you use the trolleys to get around. You can choose either the Pigeon Forge trolley or the Gatlinburg trolley, depending on where you’re staying. You’ll have the option to either ride along a specific route to sightsee and stop at different attractions or you can get a pass for the whole day that costs slightly more. The passes are good for nearly all routes in that designated trolley’s town. If you don’t get a pass, you’ll be required to pay for the routes you choose in cash when you board.
5. Skip Kennel and Sitter Fees
You can share your Smoky Mountain vacation with your whole family when you stay in one of our pet friendly cabins. This way, you don’t have to worry about kennel or sitter fees piling up the longer you’re out of town. You’ll love having your furry friend with you, and there are tons of pet friendly things to do while you’re in town as well.
Now that you know some of the best ways to save on your vacation, it’s time to start planning your trip! Be sure to check out all of our current cabin rental specials so that you can save on the perfect place to stay while you’re in town.
