However, there are plenty of free and affordable things to do in the Smoky Mountains so you can spend even less on vacation! It costs absolutely nothing to walk or drive around and take in all the gorgeous sights of the area. You can visit Cades Cove for breathtaking views or to tour historic home sites — you might even get to see some wildlife! You can also go for a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! It doesn’t cost a thing to walk along the beautiful trails, breathe in the fresh mountain air and see picture-perfect views of wildflowers, waterfalls and more. Or, pack a basket and enjoy a nice picnic in the park! For more family fun that won’t break the bank, you can visit The Island in Pigeon Forge. The Island has shopping, dining, entertainment and more, all either for free or for an affordable price! You can sit around The Island Show Fountains for a magical performance of water dance and light choreographed to 14 pieces of music, or for a small fee you can ride the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel and take in the sights of Pigeon Forge from as high as 200 feet in the air. When you spend time at free and affordable attractions in the area, you won’t have trouble spending less than $200 a day on vacation!

Make Meals in Your Cabin

A lot of the money spent on vacation tends to go toward buying meals for everyone in the family. Luckily, our cabins have fully equipped kitchens for you to take advantage of! It costs so much less to buy groceries than it does to buy meals for everyone at a restaurant. To stay under $200 a night, stock up on groceries and make meals for everyone to enjoy right in your cabin! You can make use of the stove and oven, or even have a cookout on the outdoor grill!
