A Change Of Scenery
It is easy to get stuck in the same routine. Again. And again. Mix things up this spring break, and replace your view of a desk with a view of the mountains. Take advantage of the Smoky Mountains—the only free national park in the country. The transition of seasons makes hiking to lookouts and cruising on scenic drives in the Smokies even more memorable and refreshing than ever. Learn more about the region’s nature before you come, so you can point out the different creatures and identify plants when they start to blossom in early April.
Lots of Outdoor Activities
The weather during this time of year is the perfect mixture of cool breezes and summer sun. Breath in some fresh air and enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, picnicking and more! Whether you are appreciating nature or drooling over one of the many cars displayed at the rod runs, we promise you won’t be denied the opportunity for outdoor fun.Outdoors
