Are you restlessly counting down the days until spring break gets here, or at least trying to patiently wait until the warmer weather is here to stay? With spring just around the corner, there is no better time than now to plan on spending a few relaxing days in the heart of the Smoky Mountains.
Although waking up and seeing the snow in the Smoky Mountains is a beautiful sight, we cannot say that we are sad to see it go in exchange for the warmer weather of spring. After several cold months, we are excited to trade in our heavy overcoats and down vests for sandals and sunglasses.
Not to mention, warmer weather also means that you and your family will not have to pack as many layers in your suitcase when you prepare for your trip, meaning less hassle both during your pre-planning and when you return home. Besides, with less layers to worry about, you will have more room in your bag to fit in a few extra souvenirs to bring back home with you that you and your family picked up from one of the many quaint shops in Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas.
There is no denying the beauty of the spring wildflowers in the Smoky Mountains. That being said, it is towards the end of March where families and guests will first start to catch a glimpse of the floral beauty that will soon cover the area.
Some of our favorite flowers and foliage that guests will see during their Gatlinburg vacation in March include trillium, dogwoods, lady slipper orchids, and more!
The Smoky Mountain wildlife are not the only ones coming out of hibernation, it is also time when families and guests will find a ton of fun and exciting events that they can enjoy during their Gatlinburg vacation in March. An example of some of these thrilling events including the Smoky Mountains Wildflower Pilgrimage, Spring Corvette Expo, Dollywood’s Festival of Nations, and much more!
Another perk about taking a Gatlinburg vacation in March is the cheaper rates found this time of year. Rental rates fluctuate throughout the year based on the popularity of the season. For example, summer and fall are usually considered to be peak season in the Smoky Mountains, and, therefore, the rental rates are usually at their highest during this time.
