Plan a Long Weekend in October
Everyone has their favorite season of the year for a variety of reasons, but when you’re talking about spending a long weekend in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, we can give a million reasons to choose fall! Millions of beautiful fall colors on millions of trees, millions of people who call The Great Smoky Mountains National Park their vacation destination, and millions of October things to do throughout Sevier County. (Okay… maybe not millions, but pretty darned close!)
Even if you chose not to partake of a single thing on the October 2015 calendar of events below, your week-long or long weekend getaway in the Smokies will be filled with beautiful scenery, wonderful weather and plenty of opportunities for rest, relaxation and renewal. Simply choose a Pigeon Forge cabin with a cozy fireplace and bubbling hot tub, and you’re on your way to doing nothing at all but enjoying a colorful mountain view.
