Getting Away From It All With A Solo Smokies Adventure

Taking a solo trip to the Smokies is perhaps the best thing you can do to clear your mind, to relax, and to recharge your batteries.

Although it’s always great to travel with friends and family, sometimes you just need to unwind by yourself, says Alpine Mountain Chalets.

If You Drive Into Tennessee

You immediately get the sense that the Great Smoky Mountains are looming when you get into Tennessee, and we have many chalets that are hung around every little hilltop you could imagine.Stay near major highways or deep within the forest where you can vacation in complete silence.

The Smokies give you all the natural beauty you need!

First, You Need A Peaceful Place To Stay

Isn’t this an appropriate name for  cabin? Out On A Limb,  just seems to shout “getting away from it all!”

Or maybe the Shut’r Inn in Pigeon Forge, where you’ll literally be surrounded by nature with a glass front and back–not to mention the stacked stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings hot tub or jacuzzi, and more.

So Many Activities

  • The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

If you are an outdoors lover, this is the place for you.  This park borders Tennessee and North Carolina and is 520,000 acres of hiking and bicycle trails, waterfalls, climbs, scenic drives, exhibits, historic structures and more.

  • Create Your Own Food Tour

From smoky barbecues to cornbread (and the South makes cornbread very differently from the North) to flapjacks,apple fritters and old-fashioned buttermilk biscuits, you’ll find it all here.  

Enjoy a Smoky Mountain favorite alcoholic drink: moonshine or the mint julep or Alabama Slammer.  By the way, don’t drive if you do the drinks!

  • Take a trip on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster

What a wonderful way to enjoy the Smokies!  Unlike traditional coasters, YOU control the speed, so you don’t have to worry about missing a thing. If you want a real treat, take a ride at night.

  • Do you love winter sports?

If you’re visiting in the winter you MUST go to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort.  Not only does it have some of the best ski and snowboarding trails but it overlooks Gatlinburg, so you can enjoy the sport and the scenery at the same time.

  • Experience Dollywood

Named after its founder, the iconic Country Western icon, Dolly Parton, this famed amusement park has it all:  entertainment, dining, exhibits, festivals and other attractions.

  • Take a special class

There’s a vibrant arts and crafts community in the Smokies, so you can find numerous workshops and seminars in jewelry-making, glassblowing, pottery, painting and more.  Be sure to ask when you check in.

There’s something for everyone in the Smokies so relax, unwind and enjoy!
