While there are tons of things to do in the area during Independence Day weekend, we’ve put together 4 of our favorites below that you’re sure to love:

1. Relax by the Pool

Few things are more distinctly American than spending a day (or the whole weekend) by the pool during the 4th of July! Summer has officially arrived in the Smokies and with daily temperatures climbing into the upper 80s, we can’t think of a better way to cool off than by taking a dip in the awesome pool located at our condos in Pigeon Forge TN. Adults will love hanging out poolside and enjoying their favorite drink, while kids will have hours of built-in fun playing in the pool and on the waterslide.

2. Go to the Patriot Festival
