Being prepared with the necessary clothes, hiking gear, food and other supplies can make your vacation more relaxing and successful since individuals can focus on having a good time instead of worrying about an item that was left at home. You will be able to sit back and enjoy the views of the Smokies with the peace of mind knowing you have everything you need for your trip. Also, you won’t have to worry about going shopping as soon as you get to your hotel for the items you have forgotten. Here is everything you need to know about packing for your Pigeon Forge vacation:


packing The time of the year will determine the type of clothes needed for the vacation. Since many activities are done outside, the winter months will require a heavy jacket, but the summer months will only require a light jacket or sweater for the cooler night activities. Clothing should be chosen according to which season an individual is going on vacation. Warmer months will need lightweight clothes such as blouses, short-sleeve shirts, shorts and tank tops. At night when it gets cooler, some jeans and long-sleeve shirts would be good to have packed. In Pigeon Forge, casual attire is great since most people like to relax and be comfortable. You may want to include an outfit for dining out at night at a special establishment. In addition, if visiting during the warm months, do not forget to pack a swimsuit and accessories to spend some time in the water.

Activity Equipment

A Pigeon Forge vacation will include walking and hiking. Therefore, you will need to pack the proper shoes and hiking boots.

In addition to hiking boots, you will want to have comfortable shoes for exploring the town at night. There are many things to do on the main strip so some people prefer to walk instead of having to keep moving the car. Now that you know what type of shoes to bring, let’s talk about other activity equipment.

Also, don’t forget to bring your valid fishing license.
