After a quick trip to the grocery store, your family can spend much less on food. For families who plan to spend the day sightseeing, consider packing snack bags that everyone can munch on until returning to the unit. Snacks and drinks for the whole group can add up, so being prepared will save money and prevent extra stops. The fully equipped kitchens at our condos allow your family to prepare everything from light snacks to full meals, saving you money from having to eat out.

3. Transportation

Pigeon Forge TrolleyConsider leaving your car behind and seeing the sites from a relaxing trolley bus. Rather than driving, we recommend guests to consider this unique way to travel the Smokies because our Pigeon Forge condos are located just a minute’s walk from the Pigeon Forge trolley. Running every 20 to 25 minutes, the trolley begins its route at 8:00am and continues until midnight. They carry vacationers all over Sevier County, running seven routes over Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. With over a hundred stops available in the area, an all-day wristband is only $2.50, so you can hop on and hop off as often as you’d like. This is a great way to save money, so you can leave your vehicle parked at our condos while exploring the area.

4. Visit Welcome Centers

The final trick to saving money in the Smokies is to visit the welcome centers dotted along the Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Travelers who stop in have access to guidebooks and travel planners that contain coupons to a number of the area’s attractions and entertainment. These stops also have gift shops for a Smoky Mountain souvenir, as well as maps and you’ll be able to see wildlife models. Some visitor centers even include park exhibits and a documentary theater, so make sure to add at least one to the trip itinerary.
