Your Great Smoky Mountain vacation doesn’t have to be a stressful production! The Smokies are designed to bring your family together as you create lifelong memories for everyone to enjoy!  Kid and family friendly entertainment is easy to find in the Great Smoky Mountains. In fact, most attractions offer kid friendly options for all ages. More and more cabin rentals and resorts are accommodating to children and families by providing activities and discounts to those lodging. Enjoy the seclusion of nature while remaining in a relatively close location to theme parks, national parks, and shopping centers for your convenience.

Dollywood’s Splash Country has something for both the younger generation and mom and dad. It’s your choice; relax through a windy lazy river, splash and swim in the rolling wave pool, or zip and slide down huge waterslides!

Venture out of the park and take a visit to Rafting in the Smokies: Lower Pigeon River Rafting in Gatlinburg. This exciting ride down the Pigeon River is great for young children 3 and older to experience the power of nature while learning about the river.  Unique and ‘awe-worthy’ activities and attractions can be an adventure for the whole family, not just the kids!

Visit any of the Ripley’s Museums and Attractions for a mystifying and exceptional experience. If you’re in need of some good old slapstick humor, enjoy the laughable country stylings at the Comedy Barn Theater. This award winning family comedy variety show includes musicians, jugglers, ventriloquists, comedians, live country and gospel music, and a fun cast of animal critters!
