If you and your family, friends or significant other want to avoid the post holiday blues, fly or drive to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Gatlinburg has plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy. Stay at the Clarion Inn and Suites and be close to all of the action. Spend the weekend, or take a couple of weeks to enjoy all that Pigeon Forge has to offer.
For just $5.00 per person take the Gatlinburg Trolley. The Ride of Lights is one of the most popular excursions in the entire state. Another special event that is happening through February is the Winter Magic Festival. Stroll through thousands of lights that are decorated like the animals that call the Great Smoky Mountains home. Take advantage of the holiday sales and get some great souvenirs or buy something for yourself.
Mark January 28th and 29th on your calendar and head to the Clarion as Ober ski resort is hosting its annual Special Olympics. Watch the athletes compete for gold in ice skating, snowboarding and skiing. Book now as this event is extremely popular. Speaking of snow, Ober is a great place to spend a couple of days if you like to ski. The resort usually sees the best snowfalls in January and February and has slopes that are suitable for beginning and advanced skiers. After a long day on top of the mountain head into Pigeon Forge and have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants or make reservations at the Dixie Stampede. The four course feast features delicious food and a great floor show.
