Summer is almost over, but there's still plenty of time for you to treat your family to a late summer trip to the Smoky Mountains! The end of summer and beginning of fall is the best time of year to enjoy some hiking, take in the breathtaking mountain views and have a blast at popular area attractions, and your vacation will be even better when you stay in the best cabin rentals in Gatlinburg TN!

1. Incredible Scenery

The Great Smoky Mountains are breathtaking all year long. The soaring mountain tops seem to stretch as far as the eye can see, and there’s no better place to get an up-close look at local critters and wildlife. As beautiful as the Smokies are in any season, late summer into early fall is the most magical time to truly enjoy the landscape. The trees are still covered in leaves, but the leaves are just starting to turn from lush green to brilliant yellows, oranges and reds. The temperature is still warm, but the beginning of fall brings a slight crispness to the mountain air. Whether you choose to enjoy the scenery from the privacy of your cabin’s hot tub or you decide to get an up-close experience by hiking the trails, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the mountains during your late summer vacation!

3. Indoor and Outdoor Attractions

Late summer is the perfect time to enjoy a trip to the mountains because the weather is perfect for enjoying both indoor and outdoor activities! Fun water attractions like Dollywood Splash Country and white water rafting trips are still open because the air is still warm enough, but it’s not so hot outside that you’ll feel tired after a couple hours in the sun. And since school is back in session for most kids, these places will be less crowded!
