The Year Begins With The Smokies

It's that time of the year when it's not really a time of the year at all - the big holidays are over with, the mountains are bare, and things are quiet for the most part until mid-April... but don't go thinking that this some sort of despondent time for the Smokies. The low traffic and even lower temperatures afford those who choose to come out the opportunity to enjoy East Tennessee at it's most solemnly dignified. No color in the hills, but they project a haunting beauty all the same, and the atmosphere lends itself well to romantic getaways and vacations you couldn't take during the holidays because the holidays themselves were no holiday at all!

Such are just a few examples of why you should consider a trip to the Smoky Mountains here in January. If you'd like some more, consider the following:

1. Gas prices are currently hovering slightly above or slightly below the $2.00.

2. The 25th Wilderness Wildlife Week in Pigeon Forge will be starting up at the end of the month.

3. We have plenty of luxury Smoky Mountain cabins waiting for you here at Cove Mountain Resort! Anywhere from 1 bedroom to 7 right here in Wears Valley between Pigeon Forge and Townsend, TN (some cabins are even pet-friendly!)
