A Great Gatlinburg Family Vacation Package

There are many great family vacation package choices for families in the US, but Gatlinburg has to be up there amongst the best.  The reason for this is that it offers a wide range of activities to keep everyone happy and amused. Cabin vacation package options is  better choice to the usual hotel/motel family vacation packages that can rapidly turn a vacation into nightmare for parents who have younger children who aren’t good at being quiet.


A family vacation is a time when parents and children can come together to experience new things together in a new environment.  For the most part this is an exciting time and all of the family enjoy it. When you’ve got small children, it can be stressful when they get over enthusiastic and loud – especially at bedtime.  This is what makes the cabin option so wonderful!  Hotels are very much “new” environments. They have maids who keep everything clean, room service that brings whatever you desire from their menu, and often provide small guest-sized bathroom products which kids love.  All of this adds to the end of day excitement when you’re trying to calm them down.  In a cabin, you may have some similar experiences, but at least you aren’t worried about whether or not the people in the next room are complaining about the amount of noise your children are making!  A cabin environment also quickly becomes “home from home” and you can create a similar routine to the one at home so that your kids eat and sleep as close as possible to their usual times.

The activities packages on offer in Gatlinburg make for a great family vacation package because apart from keeping everyone active during the day, most of them are going to be outdoors (weather permitting) and the excitement, fresh air and energy draining activities are all factors to promote sleepy kids who won’t take much convincing into bed – thus freeing up time for mom and dad to have some quality time on their own!

If you’re adventurous book a rafting experience – not too extreme because you’ve got the kids remember – that you’ll all remember for years to come, or how about taking some horse riding lessons and doing a little horse trekking in the stunning Smoky Mountain National Park?  If you’re looking for something a little less strenuous, you could consider an off-road adventure in a Hummer vehicle, or a family cycling tour either following a gentle route - or if your kids are a little older, tackle something that’s going to challenge you all! 
The views in the Gatlinburg area are spectacular and taking a ride up to Ober Gatlinburg on the Aerial Tramway will allow you to take some great photos on your way up to the Black Bear Habitat (not to mention the Amusement Park that’s sure to be a big hit with kids both young and old!).  If the weather does decide to rain, then attractions such as Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies with its large underwater tunnel are sure to keep the momentum running until the sun comes out again.

Whatever you choose to do, coming “home” to your own cabin at the end of a fun packed day outdoors without worrying about what the other guests make of noise your ice-cream and berry stained kids are making as they drip their way barefoot across the lobby, is going to make this family vacation to Gatlinburg so good, you’ll all want to come back next year for another Gatlinburg family vacation package.
