Summer is coming, and you know what that means! It’s time for for a road trip, so let’s plan some summer fun in the Great Smokies. A trip to the mountains is a great way to beat the heat, and our Pigeon Forge hotel has some suggestions on how to keep cool this summer and make the most of your vacation.
1. Pool Time
Nothing beats the heat like relaxing in the pool. Lucky for you, Valley Forge Inn has several pools for you to choose from. If you plan to work on your tan this summer, then you might want to spend some time at our family-friendly outdoor pool. With plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade, the outdoor pool overlooks the rolling river and offers a scenic view of the Great Smoky Mountains. If you’d rather keep those rays off your skin, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and enclosed area around our indoor pool. The pool is comfortably heated, so if it’s rainy or unseasonably cold outside, you know you’ll still be able to splash around and have a great time at our Pigeon Forge hotel.
2. Relax on Your Balcony
Smoky Mountain breezes will cool you down as you sit in the shade on your private balcony. Not all Pigeon Forge hotels offer private balconies, and we guarantee you that no other property has the riverfront view you’ll get at Valley Forge Inn. Choose a room that faces the Parkway and keep up with all the action in Pigeon Forge. Or pick a room that faces the river to enjoy the relaxing sounds of the water making its way downstream.
3. Treat Yourself to Some Ice Cream
What better way to cool down than with a cool treat? We’ve got the scoop on some of the most popular eateries in Pigeon Forge that offer these delectable sweets. Ben & Jerry’s is easy to find in the outlet shopping center in Sevierville. Grab some deals at the outlet shops, then take a snack break and enjoy some Phish Food, Cherry Garcia, or Truffle Kerfuffle. Just down the road is Mad Dog Creamery & Donuts, offering up scoops of flavorful, hand-dipped ice cream as well as donuts and funnel cakes. Families will love this place, since it has free WI-FI and a chalk wall for the kids to decorate and play games on. Mad Dog is also pet-friendly, offering water bowls outside so your pet can stay cool. Step inside and grab your fur-baby a fun toy or some gourmet doggie treats during your visit.
