Avoid the Crowd

2/16/2012 - By Donn Tisch

Tips - Avoid the Crowd

Now you might be saying,   “hey, that’s a picture of Disneyworld!” and you’d be right!  I use that to make a point.  A lot of people compare the crowds at Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge to that of being at Disneyworld,  and I am one of them!

Our number one tip:  is to stay at a Smoky Mountain Golden Cabin – where our first priority is avoid the crowd – we prefer the “peaceful side of the Smokies”!  A selfish plug I’ll admit,  but also accurate.  We are in no way against those who seek the “action of the attractions” and that is why our cabins are also in a great central location.  So if you want the Action,  it’s only a few minutes drive away.  We strive to offer the best of both worlds!

Tip number 2:   Come to the mountains in the off season.  Not only will you avoid the crowds but you will save a substantial amount of money on everything from accommodations to attractions!

Tip number 3:  Come up on a Tuesday & Wednesday.  Our two slowest days of the week.  Dollywood says their slowest day  is Thursday.  A trip mid-week will avoid a lot of traffic.  If your planning on staying for a week,  schedule your trips to the attractions mid-week!

Tip number 4:  Mom,  do the grocery shopping at night!  The Kroger and Walmart in Pigeon Forge is almost always packed full.  Good Luck trying to get help finding something.  Check out can take an hour! So do your grocery shopping around Knoxville if your on your way to the cabin.  If your already here,  the later you go the better keeping in mind it will still be busy at 2 am!!!  Another option is to use the Grocery in Townsend.  It is smaller, less crowded and has a great selection too!

The Smoky Mountains are fantastic!  And they attract a lot of guests every year who love to come up and enjoy their unique character!  We love them!  But if they have a down side it is how popular they are!  So our best advice to enjoy them the most,  avoid the crowd!
