Vacation Season Winding Down
Gatlinburg vacation season is winding down, as different school districts start another year of learning. It is still very hot, so as one walks by Smoky Mountains hotels with pools, one can spot lots of water fun. Every hotel Gatlinburg TN has will not offer a pool. As you compare prices, you have to keep that in mind. They may be asking $20 more per night, but look at all the things you get for that price.
During August, the traffic between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge becomes more manageable. Some prefer to stay in hotels near Gatlinburg TN and only drive into Gatlinburg for a hike or a shopping spree on the Parkway. This is the time to do it, as the Spur does not clog anymore as much as in July.
Gatlinburg hotels on the strip remain a favorite for those who prefer to sit on their balconies and watch the foot traffic. People watching can be a fascinating past time.
