Everyone agrees that Christmas is the most magical time of year. Trees are lit up with twinkling lights, carolers sing our favorite holiday tunes and delicious smells fill our kitchens.This year, we think you should change up your holiday tradition and consider spending Christmas in Pigeon Forge! You’ll still get the twinkling lights, the delicious foods and the sounds of carolers in the streets, but you’ll also be able to relax in a Pigeon Forge condo and not stress about cleaning your house or cooking for dozens of guests. We know you’ll love a break from the holiday hustle so much that it may just become a new tradition!

1. Hike the Trails

When you think about hiking, you probably think about going in the spring, summer or early fall when it’s a moderate temperature and the trees are covered in bright leaves, but we highly recommend spending a day hiking the Smoky Mountain trails during the chilly holiday season! Colder temperatures mean the trees are bare, which leads to higher visibility. During your hike, you’re likely to spot a few wild animals preparing for their winter hibernation, which will make your Christmas in Pigeon Forge even more exciting! Not to mention, the exercise you’ll get from your hike will earn you that extra piece of pecan pie after Christmas dinner!

2. Last Minute Christmas Shopping
