Seeing the Smokies in the Springtime

Spring has sprung here in Pigeon Forge, and we couldn't be happier! There's nothing quite like the Great Smoky Mountains as trees begin to bud and wildflowers bloom while the long grass grows again. And when you stay with us at the Ramada of Pigeon Forge you'll be just minutes from all the wonders of this majestic and great National Park.


Now that the ground has thawed and temperatures are beginning to rise, there's no better time to go for a hike, and there's certainly no shortage of trails in the Smokies! The Charles Bunion trail is a particularly sought-after hike, which offers those who take it the incredible reward of a breathtaking view of distant mountains and valleys. Or if you've got the kids in tow, check out this list of kid-friendly hikes offered by the National Park Service.


The Smokies are also well-known for their incredible wildflowers, and next month there will be a great celebration during the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage. This annual five-day event, from April 11th through the 15th, offers guided tours and exhibitions on the many species of wildflowers that inhabit the Smokies.


There's so much to see in the 520,000 acres that make up this incredible park. Book your reservation with the Ramada of Pigeon Forge today and get ready to unlock the magic and beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains.
