You’ve decided to spend your family vacation in our cabin rentals in the Smoky Mountains TN, and now it’s time to start planning your trip, including what you need to pack. You want to have everything you and your family will need to enjoy your vacation to the fullest, so make sure to include these following essentials on your packing list!
1. Everything Needed for Fun in the Sun
Spending time outdoors is one of the main reasons to book a vacation to our cabin rentals in the Smoky Mountains TN, so make sure you have everything you need to keep yourself and your kids safe and comfortable.
Sunscreen is one of the most important things to remember. A day in the mountains can get very hot and sunny, and sunscreen will keep your skin safe from the harsh rays. Hats and sunglasses are a good idea, as well. And don’t forget your bathing suits! There are tons of fun water activities to enjoy in the Smokies, so having a bathing suit or two is a must.
Another fun mountain activity is observing nature and wildlife. Bringing binoculars is a great way to get up-close views of bears, birds and other critters in their natural habitat!
2. Books and Movies
When you’re ready to relax after a long, fun day in the sun, our cabin rentals in the Smoky Mountains TN are the perfect place to call home. Our cabins have comfortable couches, luxurious beds and large theater rooms-basically everything you need to relax to the max! Therefore, you’ll want to pack your favorite books to enjoy while curled up in front of the roaring fireplace and movies to enjoy in the cool theater room during your vacation downtime.
3. Comfortable Clothing
When you vacation in the Smoky Mountains, you’ll notice that the weather can change quite a bit from the morning to the evening. The days can be very hot, but the windy evenings are chilly enough for a jacket or sweater, so you’ll want to make sure to pack plenty of options!
We recommend bringing several tank tops, t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, sweaters and light jackets. This way you can layer as needed and be comfortable in any temperature. You might also want to bring a variety of shorts, long pants and maybe a skirt or dress. You’ll be glad to have clothing options that match any weather. And don’t forget tennis shoes or sports sandals that are comfortable enough to walk and stand for several hours at a time.
4. Pack Your Pup!
Finally, a fun and unexpected addition to your packing list should be your family’s 4-legged best friend! We are excited to offer several pet friendly cabin rentals so that Fido can enjoy the family vacation, too! Bringing your dog along is a great idea for several reasons. Your kids will love sharing the experience with their best friend, the pup will be excited to be included in the adventure and you will save money on boarding costs! It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
