Summer is here, and your family is getting excited about your upcoming vacation to Pigeon Forge TN! Now that you’re starting to plan where to go and what to bring, it’s important to take a few minutes to write out a packing list. In order to help you remember everything you’ll need for a fun and easy vacation, we’ve put together a list of helpful packing tips for your trip to our cabins to rent in Pigeon Forge TN!

1. Sunny-Day Essentials

The number 1 reason why the Smoky Mountains are such a popular vacation destination is because there are endless outdoor activities to enjoy. From ziplining and whitewater rafting to riding wild coasters and sightseeing, the sunny outdoors are where you’ll want to spend the majority of your time. This means it is important to remember the essentials that will keep your family safe and comfortable during the hot summer days.

The top 3 sunny-day essentials are sunscreen, swimsuits and snacks! At the start of your day, thoroughly apply sunscreen to you and your kiddos, and don’t forget to reapply every couple hours. Nothing puts a damper on a vacation faster than a painful sunburn! Next, we recommend 1 or 2 swimsuits per person. There are so many water activities to enjoy, such as Dollywood Splash Country and soaking in your cabin’s hot tub, that it’s a good idea to have a dry swimsuit available while your other is drying! Finally, your kids are sure to work up quite an appetite from all the fun they’ll be having, so having some healthy snacks on hand is a great idea. This will save you from having to spend a lot of money on snacks out, and healthy snacks will keep your kids energized for hours on end!
