Rain Day Ideas!
You packed a picnic lunch and your hiking boots into the car and planned to spend the day outside exploring the National Park and now it’s raining! Don’t let that deter you from heading this way. There’s plenty to do in the Smoky Mountains – Rain or Shine! One of my favorite things about the area is the unlimited shops to explore!
Shopping in Gatlinburg is an experience like non other. Here you will find locals, tourists, and people watchers mingling among a choice of unique boutiques, art galleries, candy stores and souvenir shops. You will also find the country’s most popular aquarium. Ripley’s Aquarium offers hours of indoor entertainment including touching sea rays and strolling through the infamous underwater tunnel with the sharks! Also, Tanger Outlet at Five Oaks in Sevierville offers shops with some of the biggest designer names in fashion. It’s not too surprising that people come from all over to shop at Tanger.
So, don’t let a little bit of rain spoil your Smoky Mountain vacation. There is still lots to do here, and we haven’t talked about all of the live music, dinner and comedy shows. See you soon!
