Visiting the Smoky Mountains is one of the most beautiful vacations you can take in this country. The charming town of Gatlinburg nestled among the Smokies offers fun entertainment, gorgeous views and delicious food. Some of the most comfortable and scenic lodging can be found in the cabin rentals with Alpine Chalets. The Alpine Chalets are conveniently situated where you get the best of both worlds–amazing views of the Smoky Mountains yet you are in town amid all the offerings there. Packing Tips When it comes to packing your bags for your stay in your Apline Chalet cabins, exactly what you need to bring depends upon the length of your stay and what you plan to do while there. If your plans center around hiking in the mountains, enjoying the glorious scenery and eating out in casual places, your basic comfortable weekend clothes are the perfect outfits to bring. Since the air can become cooler as you climb higher into the mountains, be sure to bring along a jacket or long sleeved shirt in order to enjoy the air in comfort. This is true no matter what time of year you venture into the mountains. If your plans include some of the fun nighttime entertainment, you may want to pack clothing that is a bit dressier yet still casual and comfortable. What many people call ‘Sunday clothes’ are perfect outfits for evening outings in style. When traveling to the Smokies in the summertime, there are several fun things to do involving water play and water sports. If you plan to do some of these, be sure to pack swimming clothes and sunscreen as well as towels and water play toys for the kids. When you reserve your Alpine Chalet cabin, you can ask about activities and attractions in the area. Plan on having a great time while enjoying beautiful mountain scenery no matter what you decide to do.
